Running my business for nearly a decade now, I can certainly attest to its challenges.
My guest today on the #MakeYourMark podcast, Darrah Brustein, makes it so much easier to navigate those entrepreneurial waters. Her attitude is so positive, energetic, infectious, engaging, and she’s hitting her stride big time. Oh, should I mention that one of her free guides has been downloaded over 1.2 million times! You really need to listen to our conversation - it’s chock full of knowledge!
Darrah and I really got on a roll, offering one piece of advice and wisdom after another, and you will hear how our chat was a continuous stream of ideas, guidance and helpful tips that will help everyone who tunes in.
We all have a tendency to admire and yearn to be like those we see on social media, and yet Darrah preaches the notion of creating the life that you love, of living your life by design, not by default. Amen!
This was an episode that absolutely flew by, and as you listen, you won’t be able to hit the pause button...
I like to pull a few quotes from my guests, and honestly, there were way too many here to transcribe. Thanks Darrah!
