We have an exciting guest on the show today, friends. I’m thrilled to be sharing my conversation with the inspiring Jordan Lee Dooley. Jordan is a National Bestselling Author, Speaker, Creative Business Educator, and Host of the Top Rated Podcast, SHE. This Indiana Native is kind of a superstar - it’s funny because I actually went to Target for some groceries after our interview and happened to walk by Jordan’s face on the cover of her debut book, Own Your Everyday, on display in the book section. Jordan’s mission is to help people find and live their purpose through her online education platform called The Own It Academy, which is designed to help creative women start and grow small businesses from home - much like how Jordan got her start as an Etsy shop owner selling her calligraphy work. On her impressive list of accomplishments includes serving on Liberty University’s School of Business Board of Advisors, and features in Forbes as well as a spot on SUCCESS Magazine’s 30 under 30 List. Today, we dive deep into Jordan’s 3 part system for telling captivating stories that sell, how to go through a successful rebrand or even intentional pause in your business, and breaking out of the hustle mode as an entrepreneur so you can use money as a vehicle to build a life rich in the priorities that matter most to you.
