The Top 10 Things I’d Redo In My Business: Part 2 - EP 52



“The way that I learn the most is by taking action.”

—  Julie Greenham


This is the second part of a series where I talk about the missteps or wrong turns that I took when building my first business — and how the lessons I learned from them helped me grow and scale my current business more quickly.


If you haven’t yet listened to episode #50, I recommend that you check it out!


There isn’t a single entrepreneur out there who has built their business perfectly from the ground up. No matter your industry or the size of your business, you will make decisions that will slow your growth, set you back, or cost you money.


And that is completely okay.


For one thing, these mistakes do not define us or our businesses.


For another thing, they’re actually valuable opportunities for us to learn.


As I said in episode #50, the only real failure is giving up on your business because of a mistake.


In this episode, I’m going to talk about 10 missteps I took while running my first business, including waiting too long to ask for help, not taking advantage of timesaving tech, and using business education as a way to procrastinate.  


I share my own missteps in these episodes because I want you to be able to learn from my mistakes, as I have. I’m actually grateful for them, because my current business wouldn’t be half as successful without these valuable lessons!


Ready to hear everything I did wrong — and how it all wound up just right? Then press play.

  • 10 major lessons that I learned through running my first business
  • The time, effort, and attention you will save when you set up your systems, policies, and processes early on
