Here are the five takeaways from what they shared.

  1. Just do it. Instead of asking should I do it? Should I do it? Do your research, build a plan and make it happen. Even if you don’t feel ready.
  2. Don’t be afraid to fail. With your eyes wide open to what could happen, know that you will gain so much more from what you learn by actually doing it.
  3. If you do fail, realize that there is always a silver lining in the experience.
  4. Set boundaries with yourself. Create sacred time that you protect so that you maintain work-life balance.
  5. Ask for help. They shared that they ask each other and their spouses for support on a regular basis.
