How you can build a business around being too sensitive, compassionate, and caring
David joins me today to discuss the idea of turning your weakness into your superpower. He explains the importance of recognizing what makes you unique and why some of your weaknesses are also strengths. He describes how your life can change once you gravitate towards your strengths instead of trying to fix things that aren’t broken. David also shares his advice for those who may be questioning their talents and personal traits.
“My success isn't from fixing the weakness; it's from realizing there's a corresponding strength and maximizing that upside that most people don't see.” - David Rendall
