Other Resources Mentioned

During his chat with Kingsley, Jeff mentioned previous Read to Lead guest Margie Warrell, author of Brave, and this quote from her:

Fear regret more than you fear failure.The greater risk isn’t trying and failing but spending the best years of our lives sitting comfortably on the sidelines too afraid to try at all.

Jeff interviewed Margie in Episode #091.

Also mentioned was listener Zainab Ahmad from xeniawordart.com. Zainab’s question related to her struggle with effectively marketing her and her business as an introvert. Jeff recommended she check out The Introvert Entrepreneur from Beth Buelow.
