What does it take to scale a business? How to you let go of your inner “control freak” and perfectionism and embrace the change that comes with hiring and growing a team. Also why it’s important to get out of judgment and find time to be in the present moment and just breathe.
More About This Episode
No one ever said the entrepreneurial journey was for the faint-hearted.
It is for the “whole hearted”: people who want to play “all out” with authenticity and embrace change along the way.
Women entrepreneurs tend to battle perfectionism more than most, and yet to scale a business one must be able to let go of their inner “control freak” and surrender tasks to others.
So today on our mentoring Minisode, we talk about the challenges for women in growing a profitable business. Heather, who is dedicated to supporting a growing ecosystem of female entrepreneurs as co-founder of Doyenne, shares her top three tips:
- Find time to just breath and be in the present moment
- Embrace the “terra-thrilling” ride of growth and scaling
- Stop judging yourself – you are “enough”
And much more!
