Maisha Walker reveals how her prominent career in digital media started from a childhood love of programming. In this episode, she explains why breaking down your weaknesses—and building them back up again—is the key to personal and professional growth. Maisha also shows us how to level the marketing playing field through education, and how to “toughen up” when asking for advice.

Topics include:

  • Three actions every entrepreneur should take immediately.
  • How to find the help you need when you need it.
  • Embracing frameworks and letting go of resistance.
  • Why you need to examine your wellbeing.
