Take the Leap (My Journey to Becoming an Entrepreneur)

Episode 1 - Season 5

About the Episode

In this episode, Luvvie shares her personal journey—from being a ‘failed’ doctor to accidental entrepreneur—and reflects on the highs and lows of starting and running her business. She discusses the importance of community, the struggles of building a sustainable business, and how her outlook on entrepreneurship evolved over time. This season promises deep dives into the challenges and triumphs of entrepreneurship, featuring interviews with respected business owners and exploring topics like mental health in business leadership, building resilient teams, and operating with an abundance mindset despite financial uncertainties.

Entrepreneurship can be trash. It can be rewarding, but IT CAN TEST YOU, trigger you and traumatize you. It can also bring you freedom, expansion and community.

—Luvvie Ajayi Jones
