Episode 97: Using the power of launches to find freedom with Aline Hoss
Aline Hoss helps entrepreneurs create and launch websites and online courses in Squarespace and Kajabi. Her number one passion is to help overworked and burnout entrepreneurs create personal and financial freedom so they can do more of what they love with the people they adore - all with the power of launches!
Aline is also a superstar entrepreneur and mom, and she joins me today to talk about how she was able to accomplish starting and scaling a business while raising a toddler at the same time (without childcare!) and what prompted her to leave her senior corporate job and forge her own path after maternity leave. We also dive into the many ways that Aline helps others create their course so they can build an audience, why it’s not true that you have to have an audience in place before launching your course, and talk about how Aline tapped into the power of delegation to scale her business. She is a perfect example of taking imperfect action before you’re ready, and I’m excited to share her story with you!
