When she was a contestant on Top Chef, food entrepreneur Carla Hall recalls a defining moment that changed her outlook on the show — and life. She was standing at the judges' table and her heart was beating out of her chest, sure she was about to be sent home. "And then I just had this thought," remembers Carla, "Wait, nobody has ever died here."

That perspective allowed her to relax and stop worrying about things out of her control, and she suddenly began performing better. Carla says she carried that lesson of getting comfortable with being uncomfortable into her business, whether that means learning how to do things she never did before, or stopping and asking for help from her team. "Your team won't see it as a sign of weakness," she says. "They will be empowered by it."
