What Would Sheila Say? // Teaching Service-Based Entrepreneurs How to Start and Run their Business with Clarity, Confidence, and Courage (An Original CreativesEd™ Podcast)

Apr 7, 2022

I know you’ve heard the stats about small businesses - around 20% close in the first year, 50% close after five years, and a mere 30% make it to 10 years or longer. These numbers are staggering, yet we seem to take the reasons they end at face value. We’ve been told the reason they don’t make it is because of funding, marketing, leadership, planning. But I think the real reason is something much simpler than that. Something that no one talks about. Something that I personally - and professionally - know is the real source of a successful business, and it’s a lot simpler than you think.

In this episode, we’re covering:

  • Why *anyone* can get themselves into trouble - no matter how long they’ve been in business
  • The #1 problem I see most often in businesses when they come to me for help as a lawyer and coach
  • And WHY it’s this specific problem and not one of the others that social media and the news will tell you 

Y’all ready? Let’s do this!


Thanks for listening to this episode. I hope it was illuminating! My mission is to help service-based professionals figure out exactly what they want, realize it’s 100% within reach, and create a simple, actionable plan that will get them there (without having to burn everything to the ground and start from scratch!), and I’d love to support you.
