Being an entrepreneur is a lonely journey if you don’t have people in your corner who understand the wild ups and downs of owning a business. You’re about to meet my biz besties, Laura Markz and Tessabella Jelten, who have been those people for me.

Despite having never YET (although we’re planning a trip) meeting each other in person, the three of us have texted, called, and FaceTimed through some of the best and worst times of each other’s lives over the last three years.

Having such motivated, insanely smart women on speed dial is a lifeline on the tough days in my business, and whenever I have needed advice, strategy, a referral, or even swift kick in the butt, they have showed up for my success.

This episode really feels like you’re thrown right into the middle of our ongoing group chat, so grab a snack and get cozy as we talk about why it is so important to find business friends whose approaches complement your own + where to find these people, how you can make your business a sellable asset, and the 2 ‘must try’ strategies everyone in the online industry says to do that we flat out disagree with!
