entrepreneurship journaling mindset niche down simplify Dec 06, 2021

This episode is short and sweet as I share with you the questions I have been thinking on and journaling about the last couple months! I am pulling out the questions I have actually been asking myself, my peers, my team, and my students within my Cubicle to CEO membership, and revealing the insights I have discovered along the way. I have brought together these questions to provide you with high quality prompts you can use to critically think about in your business and personal life as we head into 2022.

I believe our personal growth is the ceiling for our professional growth, so if we aren’t evolving as people, our businesses will remain stagnant as well. These questions will help you grow as an entrepreneur, leader, and person, so take out your notebook and press play to set yourself up for success in 2022 and beyond!
