Embracing Uncertainty - in the chaos of crisis

Episode Summary 

During this episode we discuss how to embrace uncertainty and deal with the chaos that can be part of the territory as an entrepreneur!

Episode Notes

The last episode ended with Lucy-Rose and Gayle flying off in different directions on their own unique adventures around the world, at the time it was unknown whether their journey would continue in separate directions or lead back to where it all began with Misadventures in Entrepreneuring. 

What they could not have anticipated is returning home from their adventures to the beginnings of a global pandemic and what would become a full lockdown. Nonetheless what this has shown is that business will always provide misadventures and the past few months have truly revealed that there really is no roadmap and that uncertainty is part of the territory for an entrepreneur!

During this episode Lucy-Rose and Gayle share their own misadventures in embracing the unknown, from being uncertain about what would come next for Misadventures in Entrepreneuring to the lessons learned from instinctively rolling up their sleeves and doing what they do best by diving in at the deep end to support entrepreneurs in crisis.
