40. Am I Meant to be a Founder?

40. Am I Meant to be a Founder?

Do you feel the call to entrepreneurship? How do you know when to make that jump from the corporate ladder to defining your own career? From farm girl to vice president of technology in real estate investment management, Tami Jaffe made that leap, and is now helping others do the same. 

Tune into her conversation with host Jim Barnish as they talk about why you need to stop asking yourself if you’re meant to be a founder, and focusing on the better questions to ask. They discuss what she calls the clarity trifecta of confidence, courage, and commitment, partnering with great talent to fill your weaknesses, and focusing on the steps directly in front of you.

3 Key Takeaways

  • Stop asking whether you’re meant to be a founder and barraging yourself with self-doubt. Imposter syndrome is an excuse; focus on filling your role as founder.
  • You don’t need to have everything figured out. Take the step in front of you. What you thought were steps C, D, or E will likely change as you move forward.
  • Instead of asking, “how do I do this?” shift your perspective to, “who can do this?” - partner with and hire the talent who will fill your weaknesses, whether that’s in leadership roles or graphic design.
