    Episode 70: The Freedom of Multiple Income Streams

    Episode 70: The Freedom of Multiple Income Streams

    Resiliency Series 5 of 5. Today, we want to shatter entrepreneurial shame! When we decide to start a business, we're filled with excitement and fear, probably in equal measure. We watch what others are doing and we spend a lot of time learning. Something that isn't spoken about, though, is that there is a pervasive undercurrent of shame if your business doesn't meet expectations. It takes a strong will to realize that outside expectations don't have to be your expectations. Success comes in all shapes and sizes, and we want to remind you of that and that you have the ability to create business your way and with multiple income streams.

    Episode 69: Iterate Your Way to Success

    Resiliency Series 4 of 5. Most people think they need to make sweeping changes when something's not working in their business, but we're here to share that is rarely the case! You'll be much more successful when you iterate your way to success instead of burning it all down and rebuilding. Why? Because the devil is in the details as the saying goes, and when you're too eager you may very well kill something that's working well.
