Journal Your Way to Success: How to Nurture Your Authenticity & Create a Toolkit to Thrive in Business w/Dr. Mina Blazy and Carrie Jo Little

podcast Jun 15, 2021

Whether we’re in real estate, education, or any other industry - our ability to succeed is directly connected to the tools we have, and the practices we put in place.

Journaling is one of the more powerful practices that allow us to reflect, learn, organize our thoughts and come up with new ideas. If you’re trying to figure out how to build your business, journaling should become a habit.

In today’s episode, I’m joined by two entrepreneurs and twin sisters who developed specialized journals that help people succeed in business.

What are the benefits of journaling and how can we use it to infuse our brands with authenticity? In this episode, real estate content marketer and speaker, Carrie Jo Little, and educational leader, Dr. Mina Blazy share insights and lessons from their journals.

If you haven’t figured out how to like yourself, you’ll look for validation in all the wrong places. Once you validate yourself, you don’t care what other people say.  - Marki Lemons-Ryhal
