Many of us have felt the call to create our own professional path and start our own business. The call is especially strong when your why is deeply personal and mission driven. And, sometimes, that even means walking away from something else that, from the outside looking in, is everything you’d ever want. How do you handle these moments, make good decisions, and find the courage to step into the unknown? In today’s episode, we tackle questions that can arise when making decisions about what path to take, such as how do you avoid the sunk cost fallacy and know when to walk away? And if flooded with ideas or directions, how do you stay focused and committed to one project or path? And we’re in conversation with: SPARKED BRAINTRUST ADVISOR: Raina Kumra | LinkedIn | Website   Start-up founder, advisor, and food activist Raina Kumra.
