In this episode we discuss Deb’s journey to becoming a business owner, how what she does impacts how she does it, her philosophy around business and how she approaches the failures that come with being a business owner.
It’s clear in our conversation that Deb walks her talk and her relationship with her business is something she takes seriously. I had a great time chatting with her and there’s plenty of take-aways that you can apply to your own business.
“I love making my own decisions, even the ones that don’t necessarily turn out that well.”
“Yes, there’s a learning curve and I would be lying if I said that was 100% past tense.”
“One of the hardest parts was to say I can’t do it if it doesn’t feel right and taking that risk.”
