Course Corrections 

Each episode we share our practical guidance and tips to help you course correct towards building your business on your terms. This week we have a powerful course correction question to help you find a greater balance between passion and profit in your business: 

“What do you need to change to make the spreadsheet add up as well as getting you springing out of bed in the morning?”

Please share your responses on our Instagram channel to have a chance to be featured on our next episode!

Join our Course Correction Club! 

Like book club, but with a podcast topic, challenging questions, commitment to taking action, a community of entrepreneurs to support you to make small but brave changes…and optional wine/gin/peppermint tea to go with it.

After each episode we’d like to invite up to 5 entrepreneurs to a zoom video call with us to discuss and debrief the topic and the course correction questions in a safe and supportive environment. Then the scary bit - we’ll all commit to some actions and feedback to each other on the impact that it had.
