In this episode of Female Founders Breaking Boundaries, I’m sharing the importance of understanding the difference between CEOs and visionaries and actionable steps you can take right now to shift your mindset into a more creative role. Some of the things I cover in this episode are:

  • Celebrating the Female Founders Fund, founded by Anu Duggal, Adrianna Samaniego, Emily Powers, Emily St. Denis, and Caroline McKechnie. 
  • The core functions of both a CEO and a visionary and how each role is equally as important to the success of your business. 
  • How to know whether you identify as a visionary or a CEO and how to find your counterpart to balance you out. 
  • Getting past the mindset block of having to do it all to be able to successfully step into your role as the creator for your business. 
  • How the pandemic shifted how business owners serve their customers and what this might look like in the near future. 

There are amazing qualities about you whether you identify as a CEO or a visionary, but what is important is that you align yourself in the role that suits you best. Your business would not function without you and there is incredible value in that.
