What advice would you give to someone who wants to reinvent himself?

Chris Vaughn, CEO and founder of Saucey

Reinventing yourself can sometimes be a conscious move, or it can be something you just stumble upon. The best advice I can give is take advantage of that opportunity. The biggest difference between people who "do' and those who don't" is a matter of simply going for it.

Catherine Merritt, CEO and co-founder of MUMZY

When people want to reinvent themselves or move forward, they need first and foremost to be brave and know that they can do it. If they work hard, network, hustle and continue believing in their vision, it's absolutely possible to make pivots and bring ideas to life. When people tell me they don't know how I do it" (which happens all the time), I tell them that anyone who wants to can do it. Just commit and dive in.

Kerry O'Brien, founder and designer of Commando

I think ifs important to recognize that reinvention, whether personal or professional, can be scary. Often people think it happens overnight. Let me tell you, it happens over many sleepless nights. Most people have some level of tear of the unknown and stepping outside their comfort zones. I believe being honest with yourself about strengths, weaknesses and what you're truly passionate about are keys to making big life changes.
