Steadfast Society Podcast Feature | Build a Business on Your Terms

Have you ever believed your business wouldn’t be a “real” business until you hit six-figures?

Let me guess, you’ve been running those social media drills for the past few years, but still can’t seem to move the needle forward on actually growing your business. Sometimes it seems in the hustle of trying to do “all the things” you just end up tired with not much progress to show for it.

During my year long social media free experiment I sat down with Beth Harper of Steadfast Society and shared my philosophy of “business built for life” and how to build a business on your terms (for the life you actually want to live).

How to build a business on your terms

Going social media free for eighteen months turned out to be one of (if not the) best decisions I’ve made for myself, my family and my business. My goal was to learn more about marketing (which I can confidently say I have) with an unexpected bi-product of self-confidence, contentment and trust.

Some of my favorite topics from this podcast include :

  • Recognizing the tradeoff of making six-figures versus the lifestyle you really want
  • No one is giving permission to your season of life
  • Permission to live life on your terms
  • 7% of the general population deals with anxiety and depression, that number is 30% within the entrepreneur community
