    135. How to Scale Successfully as a Multi-Passionate Entrepreneur with Allison Walsh

    135. How to Scale Successfully as a Multi-Passionate Entrepreneur with Allison Walsh

    When it comes to women-owned businesses, oftentimes we take on everything, and are afraid or unable to delegate tasks. This hesitancy leads us to being the jack of all trades which can prevent us from putting time and energy into scaling and evolving our business. While it might seem scary to take the leap, our guest shares why as women, in order to grow you have to learn even if some of those lessons come from failure.  
    In today’s episode, I am talking to Allison Walsh, a two-time CEO with over 15 years of organizational leadership, mentorship and coaching experience,  the host of two podcasts, and has been named Orlando Business Journal's 40 under 40.  Allison equips up-and-coming leading ladies with the skills needed to set their own bars high, while consistently reaping the rewards of hard work. 
    During our conversation, Allison sheds light on how behavioral psychology is using the tech industry to create apps and resources around mental wellness. She also explains what it takes to run a business, why success can sometimes be a lonely ride and why the state of “analysis paralysis” and perfectionism can get in the way of getting amazing projects off of the shelf and into the world.

Must Listen!

Look up “value add” in the dictionary and CEO School’s logo would be under the definition. The podcast is a must-listen for all women looking to level up and be their best selves. As an entrepreneur, I’ve appreciated each topic and episode. Following @ceoschool on IG, @suneeramadhani on IG, and joining the Club has given me multiple reminders to remember my worth and keep learning. The ultimate women empowerment community!

Strategy, authenticity, and fun in 1 podcast!

The only reason I haven’t written a review weekly is because I love this podcast so much that I don’t know where to start. Suneera is so real but so successful that she makes me know I can get to work and achieve awesome things too! I love her combination of first hand knowledge and strategy advice combined with her mindset. Her passion for helping women build their lives shows through. The episodes are fun and educational! Everyone should listen to this podcast!
