Solopreneur Money

Feb 15, 2021

Even solopreneurs can’t do everything alone. We get to a point where we need support. Over the past 3 years, I have built up a band of rock stars to help me rock my business. Each band member that I have brought on contributes to the success of my band. This is why I want to teach you how to build your own band of rock stars. On this episode of Solopreneur Money, we are kicking off the Building Your Band series. You won’t want to miss it, so press play to get started.

How will you know when to level up?

Everyone talks about reaching the next level in their business, but how will you know when you’ve reached it? That is up to you. As a solopreneur, often you wear many hats and perform many different roles. But there comes a time when you need to get back in your own lane and do what you do best, leaving the rest of the work to someone else. Listen in to hear Anna describe how self-awareness can help you bring on success in your business.
