    Be willing to tear it all down | GB33

    Be willing to tear it all down | GB33

    Today, we are going to talk about something that comes up again and again. And that is the willingness to pivot, to make big changes when you see them as necessary. Now a lot of this ties into the basic concept of objectivity. And we're going to touch on that a little bit too. But today is really about making peace with something that we are told our whole lives, that we're not supposed to make peace with, which is that something is not actually better than nothing.

    What is your work ACTUALLY worth? | GB32

    What is your work ACTUALLY worth? | GB32

    I'm so excited to be back in the saddle and podcasting again, and coming to all of you with all kinds of fun, new stuff today. I want to jump right in and talk about something that's really, really important to me. And that is how we value our worth. 

    I've been really amazed at how people talk about worth in the online space and in the business space. We tend to not really think about worth, especially as women, we don't think about worth in the same way that men do. I mean, it's an interesting thing, you know, how women are in this constant state of feeling like we have to prove something, right? Like we have to stand up for ourselves. We have to prove our worth. We have to show people that we have the same value that men do. And that's it, it's such an incredible waste of time and energy. 

    And today I want to talk about how I think about my own worth and how I encourage clients to think about theirs and how I encourage you to think about yours.

Learned so much from this podcast

Gotten such valuable advice from people I could never afford. Love this content, and the HIST is such a great listen!

Amy McGeachy ,

Honest, Candid, Thought Provoking all packaged for bite sized consumption

Illana exudes a ’tell it like it is’ confidence along with her wise business perspective leaving me wanting to listen to more episodes of her bite sized podcast.

Jen Vertanen ,

Refreshingly candid and thought-provoking advice

Let's be honest - there's no shortage of (really bad) business advice out there and with Good Business, Illana cuts through the fluff and tells it like it is. I find myself re-listening to certain episodes because there are so many good nuggets in each one. This is for anyone either starting OR has been in business for a while and things are jamming quite like you'd want them to.
