How Being An Expat Prepared Me For Entrepreneurship
Setting up life in a foreign country sounds glamorous, the stuff best-selling books (and movies starring Julia Roberts) are made of. But there are real challenges that come with becoming an expat, which require skills that transfer over quite nicely to anyone trying to launch and grow their own business. In this episode, Amy pulls back the curtain behind what it was like to move overseas to three different countries – England, France, and Australia – and how those experiences primed her for life as an entrepreneur. This story includes passports, paperwork, and the always charming French bureaucracy, and insights on how keeping your eye on that bigger dream is the key to overcoming anything.

Am I Doing It Right?
Today we tackle the question that pops into every business owner's mind at one time or another... Am I doing it right?? This question may seem well intentioned (you wouldn't want to keep doing it wrong, would you?), but at its core lies this major problem: doubt. When in doubt, we tend to do nothing, and there is no faster way to do it wrong than to stop altogether. In this episode, Amy shares her perspective on huge topics in today's digital world, including comparison, taking imperfect action, and how to know when it's the right time to look for outside help.
