You can’t DIY your way to 100% success

Biggest Takeaways You Don't Want to Miss:
  • You can’t DIY your way to 100% success.
  • Leveraging the contributions of others isn’t “cheating.” Builders build on the contributions of others rather than wasting time reinventing the wheel.
  • Sometimes we feel like we have to do it all ourselves. That is the fastest way to burnout. 
  • Stop wasting your creativity building things that already exist. 
  • You don’t have to do things alone. There is no shame in finding a tribe of people and a trove of tools to support you.
