Show Notes

As a woman who is part of the what’s next generation and seeking life beyond ambition, starting over or starting something new is never easy. 

It takes time, patience, and most importantly, the willingness to do it.

Being bold and having the confidence to say I am going to launch the business, the product, or the service is the first step. Building and executing it is a whole different set of challenges.

And because of that, most of these highly creative, educated, and industrious women are putting their trust in others to carry out their dreams.

Learning to do the “thing” which can be as simple as logging into your website or setting up your email address, will help you be less vulnerable and more independent as you move through your entrepreneurial journey.

By the end of this episode, you will understand that there are no shortcuts and how to walk before you run.
