Ridiculous personal goals and unsuccessful attempts: Conversations with Sisters

On last week’s episode, you heard Larry Long Jr talk about a personal goal that would mean he’s made it professionally – golfing in 20 different states. Today, Courtney and Dana talk about what dream personal goals they have, and if they’re ridiculous or achieveable. Plus, which sister is better at faking the funk?  And why do we see people stopping when they’re three feet from the finish line?


Courtney: Welcome to Hustle and Gather, a podcast about inspiring the everyday entrepreneur to take the leap. I’m Courtney, 

Dana: and I’m Dana,

Courtney: and we’re two sisters who love business. On this show, we talk about the ups and downs with the hustle and the reward at the end of the journey 

Dana: And we know all the challenges that come with starting a business. Between operating our wedding venue, doing speaking and consulting, and starting our luxury wedding planning company, we wake up and hustle every day.

Courtney: And today we’re talking, just the two of us, about last week’s episode with Larry Long Jr, founder and CEO of LLJR Enterprises, which focuses on sales motivation and inspiration, as well as team training. If you haven’t heard last week’s episode, go give it a listen and come back to hear our thoughts.

Dana: All right, court, let’s get started. 

Courtney: I loved how he talked about what I would consider a ridiculous personal goal. So his goal was to golf in 20 different states. I don’t know if it was like in the year or in a lifetime or whatever it was, but he feels like he will have made it if he golfs in 20 different states.

Hmm. So what would be a ridiculous personal goal for you? When do you feel like you’ve made it?   

Dana: I mean, like off the top of my head initially, it would be to have a personal assistant.
