In this episode, I share with you 10 lessons I learnt when deciding to dive into the deep end of entrepreneurship. These learnings are ones that will have a huge impact on the first year of taking that shift (which is usually hard and overwhelming as I’ve mentioned). They are also the the most common traps that many people starting out might fall into, regardless of their business niche.
In this bonus episode, I take you through some of the highlights of the book “Rework”, what a fantastic resource to go back to again and again.
In this episode, I take you through 5 shifts you can make right now to start building your authority. I’ll talk about: Staying true to yourself, Knowing your material and creating content, Setting the right expectations, Owning your style and Remembering who you serve.
Wherever you are in your journey, whether you are building a service based business or a product based one, I encourage you to build your personal brand along side your business. I cannot begin to emphasize how customers and clients today connect and eventually buy from brands that are created by people they know, follow, like and trust.

We all know that by sharing and publishing regularly, content serves as a tool of connection, education, or entertainment; building a bridge between us and people we want to connect with… audience who find us and stick around because we caught their attention. This episode is jam-packed with information to make content planning and filling a month’s content calendar an easy task.
