Are you guilty of holding on to things just a little too long? We’re not just talking about those jeans from high school — we’re talking about the big stuff: Jobs, negative relationships, and even other people’s expectations of you. Maybe even your expectations of yourself.
We all want to level up in some way, whether that means taking on a side hustle so you can build your empire, hiring on an assistant, or finally getting coaching for that big scary dream you’ve got. But we’ve all got baggage that just keeps weighing us down.
The good news is: you can let it go. And we are gonna help you figure out how in this episode of Worth It (we promise, there is no Frozen sing-a-long in this episode).
This episode dives into what it means to let go of something, especially when it’s hard or emotional. It also explores how to let go of something that’s not necessarily bad, like that job you used to love or that client who helped you get it all started.

But you don’t have to do it alone.
When one of us steps forward and starts to blaze a new trail, we set an example for all of the others who are hesitating. People like Danny Meyer, the founder of Shake Shack, are great examples of what happens when you just let. it. go. We’ve also had to let go of things to move our lives (and business) forward. We share Danny’s story, as well as some insights on what we’re letting go of in 2019, in this episode.
