Are you getting in the way of your own success without realizing it?
The truth is, you and I have a pride problem. An ego. It's sneaky, and often subtle, and it impacts our lives and businesses in ways we can't always see.
As entrepreneurs who value integrity and serving our clients well, we want to be good stewards of the businesses we're called to and the clients we're entrusted to serve. How can we guard ourselves from the destruction that ego and pride can create?
The best way is to familiarize ourselves with some of the ways pride might be flying under the radar. On this episode of BEYOND, I'm sharing 7 subtle ways that pride might be influencing your life and business in ways you might not expect.

On this episode of BEYOND, you'll learn:

• How entitlement leads us to look for shortcuts to "success"
• Why having a business where you aren't willing to look at the numbers is dangerous
• What is *really* at work when we refuse to ask for help
• How you might be talking about yourself too much and your clients too little
• How the advice (and criticism!) of others helps us become better
• The slow creep from a focus on serving to a focus on self – and how to prevent it
If you want to continue the conversation beyond the podcast, if you are ready for the combination of life support and business strategy you need in navigating the highs and lows as a mom and entrepreneur, I want to invite you to apply for 1:1 coaching. Working with me privately is kind of like having a business therapist, marketing strategist and personal trainer for your brain all-in-one.
