This episode is a little different – those that have been following the podcast for a while will remember my interview with these amazing Wellness Business Academy alumni. We’re re-publishing this episode that got a lot of positive feedback to refresh both old and new listeners alike. It was SUCH a pleasure for me to record and I’m SO excited for you to listen to it! It’s a bit different than the regular interviews or solo episodes I normally do, this is a roundtable discussion with students sharing their real-life experiences – stories from the trenches if you will.
It’s very important to me that I represent the reality of what it’s REALLY like to build your business from scratch, the highs, lows and everything in between. Because showing only part of the picture would be super irresponsible in my opinion.
We cover all of it in this super candid discussion and just want to say how proud I am to know and be able to work with these amazing women. These Leaders in Transformation as we call ourselves in The Wellness Business Academy. We’re a community of Leaders who are doing the work to transform our own lives and the lives of our clients.
We talk about everything from being broke, to not having support to switching up sales offers, to running programs evergreen and so much more. These are the conversations we have inside the WBA online community all the time and I thought it was time to share an inside look with you too. Because while being an entrepreneur is awesome, it can also be lonely unless you surround yourself with a community that lifts you up and encourages you to do the work to reach your potential – and also offers a hand when you stumble.
