Why "failing up" is the key to a successful business with Luisa Zhou

I am simply giddy today so I’m going to jump right in because it’s one of those surreal days when I get to sit down and chat with one of the coolest entrepreneurs around. Today, I get to chat with the one and only Luisa Zhou.

Luisa, the founder of the successful Employee to Entrepreneur program, has stopped by to pull back the curtain in her own business and tell us how she reached multiple seven figures, the roadblocks we all face – and how she continues to smash them – and how the weird thing she and I have in common (being former NASA contractors) helped shape her business perspective.

We also chat about:

  • Why you should always consider the “behind the scenes” to people’s success
  • The businesses she started – and stopped – on her journey to making multiple seven figures
  • The “boiling water” and "hockey stick" analogies of business growth that you can’t ignore if you’re going to be successful
  • The one “nasty” thing that will derail your business – are you suffering from this?
  • How she turned 15 product tests into a course library
  • Why she always plans for failure – and separates her self-worth from the result
  • How she stops herself from the negative spiral of moving the entrepreneurial goalpost
