Celebrating Our 300th Episode
What’s one of the biggest myths that holds entrepreneurs back from scaling their business? Fearing the leap to a 7 figure business model.
Whether it’s a mistaken belief that it will be more work, or that you can’t possibly serve that many clients properly, or you dread the increased management requirements, many business owners keep themselves locked into a six figure business that ultimately is a lot more work to run.
On Amplify Your Success Podcast episode 300, I’m celebrating my 300th episode by re-airing a powerful conversation from #NextLevelInfluence with my co-host Sam Riley that might forever shift your perspective and give you a much needed incentive to make that next growth leap.
