Today’s episode is Part 2 of the fantastic interview with Dana Jaunzemis – my personal business hero. (If you missed part 1, click here). Dana does things differently in her business – very differently – and the results are insane. In fact, she’s killing it while doing it in a way that’s NOT overwhelming or interfering with her enjoyment of going to work.
Today we talk about how she decides what’s best for her business, how she avoids BSOS (Bright Shiny Object Syndrome), how she does things SO DIFFERENTLY than most entrepreneurs, and how sticks to her decisions.

Thanks for listening! LMK in the comments — your ONE TAKEAWAY from this episode. What did you learn??
When I went to fashion school, my classmates joked that DTM stood for “doing to much” instead of dyed to match. Now I always have to check myself for being guilty of DTM and chuckle to myself. I’m still getting over the guilt/pride of not doing everything, not acting on every brilliant idea I have, or being all things for all people. Staying focused keeps me sane. It also comes from experience of knowing what you can manage. Great podcast! Thanks, Jane!
Thanks, Kisha! I love DTM – going to steal that and use it! Good for you for working on this stuff and I totally agree — staying focused keeps me sane. Go Kisha! You are a talented entrepreneur and deserve all the success and sanity on the world!
