Taylor is backkkk for a solo episode after an (unintentional) week off during the Thanksgiving holiday. She gets right into it with an anecdotal story about an embarrassing moment she had at the grocery store last week. * clutz * She shares her current emotions and thoughts on entrepreneurship and how the end of year always brings the pressure. Taylor goes deep into owning a business and the mindset principles she’s learned over her 10 years of entrepreneurship – from intuitive marketing and busy seasons to taking time off and staying in control. She gets SUPER vulnerable about a learning moment she went through in her early days of business that instilled a major lesson for her. This episode is full of gems for the entrepreneur who needs a kick in the ass and a hefty dose of encouragement.
