Having no plan is often the best plan of all. As an entrepreneur looking to scale and grow a successful business, this statement might seem a little shocking, right? Well, what if I told you that “winging it” and taking action beats a well-laid plan every single time? That’s exactly what my guest has done in her 20+ year career: she’s mastered the art of stepping into uncertainty with confidence and has learned to figure things out as she goes.
Today I am talking with Emma Isaacs, founder and global CEO of Business Chicks and author of her new book, “Winging It.” Emma has made it her business to study what makes successful people successful, and she’s here to share her incredible insight on how entrepreneurs can start, build, and scale thriving companies through the art of winging it.
In this episode, Emma and I talk about finding the courage to start new things, why we shouldn’t attach ourselves to a specific outcome, and the importance of trusting our gut decisions (and how this tactic worked out for her). We’ll also discuss why taking action is the key to everything and how to stop planning, make a decision, move forward, and learn from it.
In this episode, we cover…
- Why action beats planning every time
- Why we’re conditioned to expect a right or a wrong way to do things
- The three biggest mistakes she sees entrepreneurs make
- How mindset plays into winging it
- Why having no plan is a good plan
”I’m all for a to-do list. I’m all for goal setting. I’m all for planning and having a big vision for your life. But it shouldn’t be at the expense of getting into action and actually getting on and starting something.” – Emma Isaacs
