I’m so excited to share this episode with you today. I’m joined by Steph Taylor, a very successful Digital Product Launch Strategist who helps guide online entrepreneurs to launch without the overwhelm and scale their businesses with simple launch success.
Steph and I have an honest conversation about what the struggles and challenges of business can really look like and how she has gotten to where she is today.
In this episode, Steph talks about her journey starting out in business, some of the struggles she faced along the way, and the challenges that continue to rise. We talk about what her business looked like in the beginning and how she got to where she is now by not having an ego, learning from the low points, and sticking it out.
I love having these honest conversations about the challenges we face as business owners because we can all learn and grow from hearing each other’s stories. Steph shares about the mindset blocks that she is unpacking and some of the tools and modalities she uses to become aware of those blockages and break the patterns of how they show up in her life.
We talk about giving ourselves permission, not giving up, learning from the early launches to refine and scale, and so much more. This episode is jam packed with golden nuggets and wisdom from an incredible woman with so much knowledge and experience. You’re going to love it.
