211: Why You Shouldn’t Fear The Ebbs & Flows of Life

Featuring Rima Danielle Jomaa

Rima catches listeners up on her entrepreneurial pursuits, which include low “ebbs” along the way. With all transparency, Rima talks about a lack of motivation, feeling stuck in work & life, & how “ebbs” can be depressing. She shares how she deals with these moments & how it’s actually a good thing to have ups and downs in life. She talks about the importance of creating space for different opportunities to come in & being open for what comes. Sometimes we need a break from our routine or our story to clear all the voices out before we can figure out what we really want for ourselves. As entrepreneurs, it can be challenging to stick to one path, to get focused, & to not do all of the things that come our way, & this episode talks all about dealing with those things & the attachments we collect along the way.
