If you are a woman who has started her own business, I don’t have to tell you that you face quite a few challenges.  You have to know why you're in business, your goals and obstacles, and what's working and what isn't working.  You also need to know how to ask for the money, how much money to ask for, and how to feel good about asking for it.

In other words, even in the most simple, solopreneur business: coaching, consulting or professional services, you need to know your why, what you are trying to achieve, your advantages and disadvantages, and what aspects of your business are actually driving your success and which ones are inhibiting or delaying it.  Our relationship with money is the other elephant in the room, and a surprising number of women have trouble with establishing their prices, selling, and accepting payment.  

With all these challenges, the majority of us dive head first into consuming content about business,  hoping it will make the daunting task of decision-making easier or more comfortable.   There is nothing wrong with seeking advice, consulting or coaching, but the risk of following others, either too many experts or over-reliance on a so-called “expert” is you may very well end up with a business you hate.  

As hard as it is to admit, you would not be alone if you ever said or thought this.  In fact, there is a growing number of women who have hit the wall in their business and don’t know what to do.  Like everything else in life, it starts with self-awareness. 

What you’ll learn in today’s episode: 

  • Four wrong ways to start a business 
  • The warning signs that your business isn’t right for you
  • Why you need a simple business plan 
  • My thoughts about the word “expert” in the online world 
  • There is hope, even if you hate your business, so don’t give up! 

If you find yourself thinking “I hate my business”,  you don’t have to figure this out alone.  The first step is to figure out the habits and behaviors that are holding you back.  Take my quiz and you will find out your specific challenge but will receive feedback, guidance, and practical advice about steps you can take to fix it.
