What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

As an entrepreneur, my biggest accomplishment is balancing the needs, responsibilities and priorities of my work with my personal life. That means being comfortable working independently and still ensuring that we make it to swim meets, attend appointments, and manage renovations in our home.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

For me, there have been two big challenges. The first has been dealing with the fear and stress around incoming money versus outgoing expenses. The second has been overcoming imposter syndrome. I've had to coach myself the same way I coach my clients to believe in my skills and trust the process.

  1. Don't think small.
  2. Amplify your strengths and get help with your weaknesses.
  3. Be in service of others.
