364: Lessons From My First Business The BizChix Podcast: Female Entrepreneurs | Women Small Business | Biz Chix

    • Careers

Learning how to run a profitable business takes time. Despite what some people might have you believe, we’re not born equipped with all the knowledge and wisdom we need to become a successful entrepreneur. Life teaches us those things.  
You might have the fundamentals of running a business down to a tee, but it’s not until you’re in the trenches of your business that you gain a wealth of knowledge and finally understand what it takes to be a business owner. 
I’ve learned a lot throughout my career. But, the lessons I learned back in my first business, have arguably been the most impactful on me and my career. In this episode of the podcast, I take you back in time to my very first business and share the seven most valuable lessons I learned that impact how I run BizChix today. 
So, what are you waiting for? Take a trip down memory lane with me!

Why you should build a sales team  The value of retaining clients  How to create momentum in your business  Why you need to seek impactful work that brings you joy  Join the BizChix Community
