Samantha shares these key points to help entrepreneurs overcome their procrastination:
Do things your way
It can be extremely unmotivating to do something because you think it’s something you have to do. Instead, go against the norm and get creative with your business ideas. Don’t just do something just because it’s what you think is expected of you, do something because you want and love to do it.
Outsmart your inner teenager
Sometimes when we have growth opportunities or set goals, our inner teenager comes out and refuses to let us succeed. We shut down and refuse to step out of our comfort zone. To outsmart our inner teenager you need to find ways to get past your rebellion. This could include rewarding yourself or by down-playing how important your productivity actually is.
Determine your goal
Once you set a goal for yourself, you can determine a business strategy that is true to you and the audience that you are targeting.
