This is the 12th issue of a newsletter, where I share things from my personal journey and and helping early-stage entrepreneurs get their business off the ground.
This should only take about 7 mins to read.
This issue is focused on the importance of micro-growth and reducing fear while you build your business.
When you are building a business, you will start to learn from day 1. The most common reason why people don’t start is fear. Mainly fear of the Macro and what the world will think of them. It’s the wrong way to look at it: people really don’t care about you and what you are doing. Those that take time out of their day to hate or compare themselves are not putting that time into themselves.
Macro-growth drives fear, and fear drives:
What’s the best way to overcome that? Focus on micro-growth. Small improvements, small steps towards growth.
Keep in mind as you keep reading — nobody knows everything, and everyone started not knowing anything.
We are all learning every day, don’t forget:
We are on different paths, we have different lifestyles, and we have different variables that affect our day. We are all learning in different ways through different experiences. Experiences compound, and when you keep building, you learn to maximize time and how you solve a problem.
You have the clarity to be ok to know what you don’t know.
Lean into the building process and the fear starts to go away.
It’s hard to be consistent with something you are not passionate out.
When you combine passion and consistency, you get results.

Kicking off season 2 of my podcast with a lovely chat with Elise Decamp. She is the co-founder and CEO of TOKI, a platform that introduces a loyalty infrastructure based on blockchain technology. We mainly talked about how she got into eCommerce, what TOKI aims to provide to brands, and what their plans are for the future.
During the episode, we also talked about the challenges of fundraising, the importance of educating people about blockchain and eCommerce, things to consider if you want your business to be acquired, etc. Tune in here to listen to the full conversation.
Tool of the week: Zorp.one
Why this tech stack is so awesome:
It provides a number of tools to prevent you from wasting time scouring the internet for the best tool. The goal is to start building, not searching for a tool. I found this to be super helpful and I hope it helps one other person!
