Transcript: – Hey there, friend, it’s Stefanie Krievins founder of the Pro Troublemaker Nation. And today we are on step eight of 10 essential steps for becoming a Pro Troublemaker. Here’s step eight my friends. Pro Troublemakers know how to solve old problems with new ideas. We are innovative. We are creative. We call bullshit on the notion that we have to do more with less. You know what we have to do as Pro Troublemakers? Is we have to solve the right problems. We don’t have to solve all the problems. We have to get focused. We have to get adaptable. We have to get scrappy when times get tough. But this notion that I had to put in more and more and more and more, and try to accomplish and solve the same old problems is nonsense. As a Pro Troublemaker, we know that in order to solve the problems of the future, we’ve got to think from a new perspective, we have got to understand that we don’t have it all figured out. And instead we’ve got to bring in more team members so that we can get even more creative. So friends being a Pro Troublemaker is all about understanding that there is no failure. There is only growth and learning. Every time you get knocked back down, we stand back up and we attack that problem in a new way, because we know that the solution is out there. All right, my friend, let’s get off the internet. Let’s go look at those old problems with new eyes and I’ll see you soon.
