- Mark Drager, the successful serial entrepreneur and host of the podcast and YouTube series, We Do Hard Things, joined on the show for this week to talk about why entrepreneurs (but also anyone) need to ask for help.
- Charlie and Mark had a meeting of minds on the gifts and opportunities that open up in your career and business when you accept that you don’t have to know everything.
- There’s not one right way for everything to unfold. Mark narrates his career journey from film school to a corporate franchise, and later, facing a low point in his own business. That low point forced him to finally ask for help, and as a result, find a better path to using his intelligence, talent, and energy to serve himself and others.
- What does this tell us? That often doing our best work requires us to center ourselves on our dreams and our passions — and the unknown. We need to be asking ourselves not just the next smartest thing we can do, but the most courageous thing, which likely involves being vulnerable.
- Mark’s challenge: Pick the one thing that’s worrying you or keeping you up at night. Reach out to three people and ask for help.
