DAVID RYAN TAYLOR | Why perfection is the enemy of good enough #034

David Ryan Taylor a amazing at photography. But he’s struggled with striving for perfection, being a mediocre businessman and often being terrible self-critic.

An internationally award-winning photographer, the challenges of building an actual business have been a strain on his creativity. Like many of us, he’s never fully given himself permission to commit one way or the other – build a sustainable photography business or treat his passion for what it is, a glorified hobby. It seems too scary to walk away from the safety and comforts of his plan-B, day job. Yet, maybe he doesn’t have to.

Today, we talk about facing our limiting beliefs, being our own worst critic, and the steps necessary to being your most effective self. 

In This Episode, You’ll Discover:

  • Being a continuous learner
  • Why is it important to have an understanding of the essential business principles and strategies on starting your business
  • Limiting beliefs that are keeping you from your best self
  • Conquering the self-doubt
