Episode 220 | Overcoming The Fear Of Starting Something New feat. Lisa Burling

Jun 21, 2024

I’m so excited to introduce you to my guest this week!  

Lisa Burling is an award-winning businesswoman, Fellow of the Public Relations Institute of Australia, degree-qualified journalist, and a published author. She has over 20 years’ PR experience working on some of the world’s biggest brands and companies in Australia, the United Kingdom and Europe.

She founded her agency, Grass Is Greener Group (formerly known as LBPR) over 11 years ago, and she’s the founder of her recent startup, Mabel’s World.  

In our conversation this week, we speak about the huge obstacle that faces most entrepreneurs: the fear of starting something new.

We cover: 

  • What Lisa has done to set her primary business up to free her the bandwidth, energy, time and money to start a side hustle
  • The “birth” of Mabel's World – how it came to be
  • The blocks she experienced in creating it 
  • What she’s done to overcome those blocks
  • How starting something new has opened her to other new experiences 
  • The idea of “failing in public” 
  • How she has used journalling to overcome self-doubt

The book we both rave about is Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert - read it!
