Quitting is NOT the same as FAILING - Episode 8

Boss Talk with Chris Ellis

16-08-2022 • 55 mins

I recently closed the doors on a business I co-founded. Why am I not sad? ‘Cause now we’re more successful than ever!!!! Today, my business partner (Dr. Sarah Ellis) and I, tell you all the gory details about what made us “quit”... and why that was “a boss ass move”.

Today’s episode is...
Quitting is NOT the same as FAILING

What happens in this episode?
I interview Dr. Sarah Ellis about the rise and “fall” of Ellis Family Wellness, a health consultation business we co-founded. We decided to close our doors after realizing that the services we provided weren’t truly aligned with our passion (i.e. educating people on how they can live their best lives).

Why is this episode so important?
There are a lot of people right now that are keeping themselves stuck in a place because it “makes sense” instead of following their true passion. And today, I want you to have a first hand look at what life can be when you choose passion / purpose over what makes sense.

Episode Highlights

  • Brick-and-mortar businesses can easily create more problems than they solve.
  • Your qualifications don’t equal your real value.
  • Quitting is never a failure when it re-aligns you with activities that are most important to you.
