Is seeking joy part of your business plan? Because it should be.
Seeking the joy in running our businesses helps us to deal with the ups and downs, the stresses, and the challenges that inevitably pop up on our entrepreneurial journeys.
My guest for this episode, Lianne Kim, is the author of Building a Joyful Business, which teaches how to create an inspiring vision for your business and build a living based on your passions and strengths, along with practical advice for introducing ease into the less joyful parts of your business.
