The Kristen Boss Podcast

Jun 24, 2024

Have you ever felt like your business is on cruise control, where the excitement and motivation that once drove you have faded? This stage is what’s known as the "danger zone," and it’s a place many of us might find ourselves in without even realizing it. 


The concept hit home for Kristen during a conversation with her fitness coach about her current state in her fitness journey. What became strikingly clear is that this danger zone is not just limited to fitness—it happens in business too.

Let’s look at a few highlights:

  • The danger zone is a point in your journey where you're no longer driven by pain but haven't yet established a new goal to chase. It’s human nature to avoid pain more than to chase desires
  • Your business begins as a solution to this pain, but what happens when the pain is alleviated? Without a new goal, you risk entering the danger zone.
  • Without the drive to move forward, complacency sets in. You might think there’s an endpoint where you’ve completed your journey, but the truth is, the work never truly ends.
  • Understand that growth often comes with discomfort. Be willing to put yourself in situations that challenge you and push you out of your comfort zone.
  • Every entrepreneur reaches a point where the journey feels mundane and less exciting. It's normal, but it’s also a signal that you need to push yourself further.


The danger zone is a reality for many business owners. It’s where you might feel tempted to relax and coast, but it’s also where you risk stagnation. Kristen encourages you to move out of the danger zone, find the motivation that will drive you to the next level, and achieve your goals. Don’t let complacency take hold.
