    69: Can these 7 Takeaways help you grow to 7-figures?

    69: Can these 7 Takeaways help you grow to 7-figures?

    On this episode, I share with you my takeaways from Terran and Quinton Lewis who I spoke with on episode 67. Their interview was full of so much helpful information that I wanted to share with you the areas which resonated with me and that I feel can help you as you grow and scale your business. 
    Terran and Quinton are co-founders of Herb’N Eden, a holistic skincare company that specializes in handmade soap bars. Starting the company in 2015 after dropping out of college, the unprecedented and tragic events of 2020 helped propel their company to heights they had never imagined were possible, and they closed the year with seven figure revenues.

    68 - A Day in the Life: My Unexpected Flow

    68 - A Day in the Life: My Unexpected Flow

    On today's episode I share with you a day in my entrepreneurial life from this week. When I originally began brainstorming ideas for this podcast one thought was to share the good, the bad, and the ugly of an entrepreneur's life. I thought about calling it Notes from a Small Business Owner's Desk, but I thought that was a little wordy and I did not want to box myself in. I wanted to share other entrepreneurs' stories and other business insights. 

    Takeaways:


    Problems are going to happen in business...they are inevitable.
    Sometime you have to just go with the flow.
    Surround yourself with other entrepreneurs who understand your struggles. 

    Quote: If you can't control the current of the river, then don't fight it just go with the flow. ~ Unknown
