Is there anything you wish you had known before you became a business owner? If you’re like me, the answer is “definitely.”
Becoming an entrepreneur was one of the most challenging decisions I made, and it remains difficult to this day. Unfortunately, there’s no handbook for running a business. Most of us have to learn as we go.

Back in 2018, I met with Dominic Lawson from The Startup Life Podcast, a show dedicated to helping entrepreneurs grow their business. Dominic and I discussed some of the biggest challenges we faced in our journey—and how those challenges shaped us as leaders.

Among other things, Dominic and I chatted about:

  • How I became an unintentional entrepreneur
  • The risks of avoiding issues instead of tackling them head-on
  • Why business leaders need to be learners and adapters
  • How to keep your family and friends priority while running your business

This podcast episode is perfect for any entrepreneurs who feel like they’re the only ones struggling to gain traction and become the leaders they hope to be. Here’s the link if you missed it:
