Starting a new business is scary; starting a business as a single mom with five little ones depending on you while navigating the emotions of a divorce is even more so. But where there’s a will, there’s a way. And today’s guest, Melissa Rose, dug in and made it work.
This episode is for all of you who feel like you need to look and be perfect online. You don’t. In fact, it’s time to stop following all those accounts that make you feel bad or like you’re not enough. Melissa and I talk all about the story behind the story, what kind of time you need to invest in business, how to grow and move forward, how to hire the right person the first time and how to invest in a new team member. Melissa also shares about how she onboards new team members–and it’s not through written out SOPs (unless it’s her assistant creating them!).
