The Daring Romantics 

Episode No. 22

there’s one question that i keep pondering lately, and it’s this: “is what we’re doing changing people’s lives or making them feel they are falling behind?” 

in the journey of entrepreneurship, self-promotion kinda becomes a way of living— a way of doing. we’ve become so accustomed to promoting ourselves, over romanticizing ordinary moments to make it look better on social media, boasting about our accomplishments, and puffing our chests to show off what we’ve built — but what for? 

yeah, i get it — all of this comes with the territory. 

it comes with the day and age we live in and we can easily chalk it up to “marketing”. 

but, entrepreneurship is more than just making a living, it’s about influencing people’s lives for the better. 

as daring romantics, if we’re going to be about people — then, we need to take a moment to stop and pause and see if what we’re doing is actually helping people or making them feel like no matter how much or how hard they work they’ll never attain this picture perfect pinterest worthy lifestyle that we’re portraying — a lifestyle that isn't even real, because it's only a sliver of the full picture. 

we need to take a moment to pause and ask ourselves — are we allowing our humanness to shine through? or is what we are doing isolating ourselves and blocking actual human connection from happening? 

in this week’s episode of the daring romantics, i’m diving into this concept and i hope more than anything it’s food for thought. i’m sharing some simple things that each of us can do in order to make sure that what we are doing is impacting people’s lives instead of making them feel like they are falling behind in life.

if there’s one thing that each of us crave in this life — it’s human connection. i hope that this episode reminds you that it’s a powerful thing to share your not-so-perfect, ever-in-need-of-grace human side even as you’re building your dreams and ideas. 

we’re all in this together, my friends.
