The 10 Biggest Mistakes I Made Growing My Business {and How to Avoid Them} – Part 3

We’ve made it!

We’re finally at Part 3 of my Biggest Mistakes I Made Growing My Business {and How to Avoid Them} series and these top three are doozies (there’s something I love about saving the best…or in this case, maybe worst, for last…you’ll have to listen to find out!).

If you haven’t listened to Part 1 and Part 2 yet, head back to Episode 249 and Episode 251 to get everything leading up to these final lessons on how to swerve past roadblocks that are keeping you from achieving that vision of success you have for yourself and your studio.

Now, I’ll admit, we talk a lot about business here on Ready. Aim. Empire., and some of what you’ll hear in this episode does dive into the business side of mistakes to avoid (like what in the world a KPI is), but on the other side of that business info is some honest-to-goodness soul talk.

Whether it’s trusting others, trusting yourself, dealing with navigating business decisions that call into question your values…

You’ll find that some of the most potentially destructive mistakes and biggest problems begin within.

Thankfully, you can solve them from within as well, and it’s never too late to start.

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • The influence my mother had on me as an entrepreneur, and a lesson she taught me that I have never forgotten
  • How I relinquished control and learned to genuinely start to trust people and create the team needed for building an empire
  • What KPIs and metrics are {and why you need to know them}
  • The ways I maintain a positive mindset momentum, even in the face of significant health challenges

With grit and gratitude,
