EP 10: Why Action Beats Planning Every Time Ft Emma Isaacs


Where can you give yourself permission to take action? 

We get so good about sitting back and waiting for opportunities to come to us. We also get really good at planning, that can easily become overthinking.  

My guest today on the Permission to Offend podcast is Emma Isaacs: entrepreneur, owner of Business Chicks, and author of the international best-selling book, Winging It: Stop Thinking, Start Doing: why action beats planning every time. 

In this episode, Emma shares why it’s time to stop waiting, hoping, and planning and give yourself permission to take action and create opportunities for yourself. 

Immediately after listening to this conversation, you must grab a copy of Emma’s book, Winging It! I have marked mine up and got so much value from reading it! Plus, the packaging totally hooked me! Attention to detail gets me every time.
