6 Lessons Learned While Building a 6-Figure Business on The Free to Be Podcast with Michelle Knight

Welcome back to The Free To Be Podcast and thank you for all of your amazing support in celebrating the first episode! We're kicking off the second episode with a solo episode from yours truly.

To celebrate my last 2 years in business I'm getting super personal about my own journey and some of the key lessons I've learned along the way. The best part of this episode is that it applies to EVERYONE, whether you have a business or not, these six lessons have not only impacted my business, but also my life.

Entrepreneurship is a fast track in personal development, and it's not all shiny photos in Paris, it's work and dedication, but it's worth every single second. In this episode, I hope to shed some light on the behind the scenes of running a profitable 6-figure business, being a mompreneur and woman.

I can't wait for you to dive in.
