To grow a business, you need to trust yourself. And the fact that you don’t, according to this week’s guest, is what’s holding you back. I have to agree with her.
I invited Sarah Walton, speaker and business mentor, to be on the Stories in Small Business podcast because she’s such an inspiration to me and other business owners because of her no-nonsense style and her compassion.
We’re talking about why trusting yourself is THE thing that will help you succeed in business, what to do about business copycats, why women are conditioned to give away our expertise for free (and how to stop it already) and how to put yourself in the right mindset to grow your business on your terms. I love how she talks about shifts and growth too and how the first iteration of anything you do is going to be crap (especially as you look back on it later) and how she talks about responding to people who question your pricing.
Join us for this inspiring and motivating conversation!
