The Entrepreneur Lifestyle with Bridgette Rooks

The Entrepreneur Lifestyle with Bridgette Rooks

By Bridgette Rooks
Entrepreneurship is portrayed as an amazing and beautiful lifestyle and anyone can do it. Over half of the best business ideas fail before they begin from this one simple mistake. So many see the glamorous lifestyle and make the mistake of jumping headfirst into Design instead of spending time building a foundation first.

My mission is to help aspiring entrepreneurs turn their dream of entrepreneurship into a lifestyle. Entrepreneurship is not only a journey. It’s about creating a lifestyle that will guarantee the growth and development of a business that makes money doing what you love.

S5 E3: How to Get Focused & Manage the Things You Can Control
I’ll admit it, getting organized in the beginning is challenging. It can be extremely hard to focus and find balance. This is why having a coach who can help you remove the emotional connection can be a good investment. You only know what you know. Having a coach who can provide clarity and order will help carry the weight and provide daily support. In this line of business sometimes the impact of this investment doesn't reveal itself until all the pieces of the puzzle start to fall in place.  This week let's talk about how to get focused and manage the things that you can control. There's no reason to sit in your emotions and dwell on the things that are out of your control. Check out the Mindset Makeover online Course and 90 Day Goal Setting Planner.

S5 E1 - The First 5 Steps You MUST take to Manifest your Dreams
It's hard sometimes when you see the world for exactly what it is but you know that there's more. I figured this out, once I stopped looking into the world for the answers that I needed, and started looking into myself. The lightbulb began to flicker when I noticed that every time I wanted to give up or quit, I’d hear that same small soft voice remind me to keep going. Now that I’ve learned to adhere and take action instead of brushing it off this notion, I feel more in control than ever. It's time to start manifesting your dreams and living life on purpose!
