What I'd Do Differently Starting Over Again

Hey there, fellow life traveler! Whether you're at a crossroads in your career, relationships, or personal development, starting over can be both daunting and exciting. If I could turn back time and start over again, there are a few things I'd do differently to make the journey smoother and more fulfilling. And I'm here to share those insights with you, so you can embark on your new adventure with confidence and clarity.

1. Embrace the Learning Process

Openness to new experiences

One thing I'd do differently is to embrace the learning process wholeheartedly. Instead of fearing the unknown, I'd approach it with a sense of curiosity and openness to new experiences. Every challenge, setback, or change presents an opportunity to learn and grow. So, I'd remind myself to stay open-minded and welcome the lessons that come my way.

Willingness to adapt

I'd also adopt a mindset of flexibility and adaptability. Life rarely follows a straight path, and being able to pivot when necessary is crucial. I'd tell myself that it's okay to change course, adjust my plans, and explore different options. Flexibility would be my mantra as I navigate the ups and downs of starting over.

2. Build a Support System

Seeking guidance

Looking back, I'd prioritize building a strong support system from the get-go. Whether it's seeking advice from mentors, connecting with like-minded individuals, or leaning on friends and family, having a support network is invaluable. I'd encourage myself to reach out for help, guidance, and encouragement along the way.

Surrounding myself with positivity

In addition, I'd be mindful of the company I keep. Surrounding myself with positive, empowering, and supportive individuals would be non-negotiable. Their belief in me, constructive feedback, and uplifting energy would fuel my journey forward.

3. Set Clear Intentions and Goals

Defining my vision

Starting over can feel overwhelming, which is why I'd emphasize the importance of setting clear intentions and defining my vision. What do I hope to achieve? What are my short-term and long-term goals? Having a roadmap, even if it's flexible, would provide me with a sense of direction and purpose.

Taking consistent action

Moreover, I'd remind myself that progress stems from consistent action. It's not just about the end destination, but the steps I take each day to inch closer to my goals. I'd focus on small, achievable actions that align with my intentions, knowing that they compound over time.

4. Practice Self-Compassion

Embracing self-care

In the midst of starting over, I'd make self-care a priority. Nurturing my physical, emotional, and mental well-being would be non-negotiable. Whether it's through meditation, exercise, hobbies, or simply taking time to recharge, I'd remind myself that self-care is not selfish; it's essential for resilience.

Showing kindness to myself

Lastly, I'd practice self-compassion during moments of doubt or difficulty. Starting over can be challenging, and it's okay to acknowledge the struggle. Instead of being overly self-critical, I'd show myself the same kindness and understanding that I would offer to a friend facing a similar situation.

With these insights in mind, I'd approach starting over as an opportunity for personal and professional reinvention. It's a chance to redefine my path, pursue my passions, and create a life that truly resonates with who I am. If you're embarking on a new beginning, remember that it's never too late to embrace change and chart a course that brings you fulfillment. Cheers to your journey ahead!

We are celebrating episode 50! I asked my Facebook community what they wanted to hear about. I’m going to share about what I would do differently at the beginning of my business journey in order to get to where I am now, but faster. Where would I have put focus on more to still be here, to have the same result and success, but without having to go through all of the things. Thank you Veronica for this suggestion!

In this episode, I will share five specific things that I would do differently. I firmly believe everything happens for a reason. I believe that God puts things in our path to help challenge us, expand our comfort zone and encourage us to do things in a different way. It doesn’t always turn out exactly how I want, but I know the outcome is always better than if I were to stay where I was.

Biggest Takeaways: 

  • I would have gotten out of my own way, just giving myself a kick in the pants and said, “Get over yourself, Susan, it’s important to grow your list.”
  • You need to have sales in order to have a business.
  • At the end of the day, no mentor, no expert and no guru out there will be able to decide what’s best for me and my business other than me.



  • Why the first thing I would do is the grow my list [04:12]
  • How setting up automations are so important for saving time and effort in your business [07:52]
  • The reason why you cannot stop marketing or selling in your business [13:25]
  • How I pitch in a non-sleazy way and why you need to keep reaching out to people in order to grow your business [16:10]
  • The BIGGEST thing I would do differently in my business [18:48]
  • What to do when you know what’s missing [25:13]
