Episode 403 : Marlena Banks – Author of Big Idea Food

On today’s episode we hang out during our Creative Community Chat where we discuss navigating during Covid-19 we had the pleasure of having Marlena Banks who I like to think of the mindset queen.  

Marlena is a Christian Startup Coach Author of Big Idea Food: A Weekly Devotional for Entrepreneurs, Side Hustlers & Dreamers. Big Idea Food™ started in 2018 as a paperback devotional for entrepreneurs that serves up dope biblical nuggets to energize your hustle. Since then it’s grown into a lifestyle brand for dope Christian entrepreneurs that features a private online community, a YouTube channel, and weekly devotional emails. Together, all these resources work to feed your spirit with God’s word in a voice you can relate to so that you are empowered to execute the ideas God has given you.

On This Episode we Discuss 

  • How do you deal with fear? What does that look like practically. 
  • Why are we not doing what we’re supposed to do? 
  • What mindset work do we need to do to get rid of our excuses and produce?
  • Wanting to collaborate but I’m full of comparison how do I handle that space
