Podcast Episode 004: Crash and Learn with Lise Kuecker

I just think I need to explain to you what these episodes are all about.  Every Crash & Learn episode, I’m going to interview an entrepreneur about a time that they probably don’t want to talk about – a total business failure.

But we aren’t going to stay there. We’re going to dissect and discuss what they learned and how they overcame that failure.

Because it’s not just about failing. It’s about learning from the experience to hopefully never have it happen again.

So in this episode, I walk you back 9 years to a time that was just plain crazy. I was 6 months into starting my brick and mortar business and had 2 babies to care for.

I get into what my personal life looked like and trust me guys – it was messy.

If you feel like you’re starting a business when your personal life isn’t where you want it to be, this episode is for you. I’ve been there.

So take a listen to Episode 004 and learn how to overcome what personal hurdles you may be experiencing right now.

In this episode, you’ll learn

  • What mindset shifts you need to make happen when you start a business. This isn’t woo woo stuff. There are truly blocks around success, failure, – you name it and you have to get through them in order to succeed.
  • How a major setback early on in my business could’ve almost caused me to quit my business. But I overcame it! This is a major lesson, y’all.
  • How to backup your business decisions. What does that even mean? Tune in to find out!
