Authentic Self | How to overcome adversity & grow your business | Episode 17

Everyone encounters adversity when starting a business but not everyone has the tools to overcome the challenges they face. The good news is that overcoming adversity is a skill that anyone can develop through the proper guidance and support.

If they haven’t developed the skills to overcome adversity they may be leading you down the wrong path. The worst part is that you tend to believe what they tell you because it confirms your own belief that your idea isn’t good enough. And we don’t want that to be your reality…
