“Serve first, then scale” with Jadah Sellner

Have you found yourself feeling a little behind? Like you can’t catch up? When you pause to look at the big picture of life, you see so many people around you making dents in the universe, and you feel like your contribution doesn’t really matter.

If your confidence feels shaken, and you need a reminder of your greatness, then solo episode 135 of the Lead with Love podcast is for you.

As the co-founder of Simple Green Smoothies where we grew our community to over 1 million followers across our email subscribers, Instagram followers and Facebook fans, our heart and attention was on service, not on scale.

Scale happens once you have served and have proof of concept that what you have to offer, people actually want and are willing to pay for it.

A mistake I see a lot of people make inside start-up companies, is they move to scaling, automating, and outsourcing too soon. Without really getting to know the people they serve, the best platform to reach them, and the most transformational product to sell them.

In this episode, I’m going to share a powerful reframe that will help you show up and serve without doubting your brilliance or dragging your confidence down.
