Defying the Odds – Independent Business Podcast

I sat down with an dear friend, Natalie Franke, Head of Community at HoneyBook, to discuss the art of running a small business, and overcoming the barriers stacked against you.

In 2019, 90% of small businesses failed. It’s hard to make it as a new business owner, and seeing that stat, it’s easy to give up before you even start. But it is possible: I’m living proof of it, Natalie is living proof of it, and you can be too. A big issue businesses might encounter is an issue in their system, like with contact and order forms being overloaded. Get your system in order, and things do truly become so much smoother. HoneyBook can automate behind the scenes, and you can focus on growth.

Success can be even more terrifying than failure, but it doesn’t have to be. It’s important to dare to dream. I’ve fought my way here, and I can help you make it too. Dare to defy the odds.

Natalie and I go in depth on this and more in, The Independent Business Podcast.
