BOSS Talk In Person History.png

What does this entrepreneurial journey really look like?

BOSS Talk was created in 2018 as a way to connect entrepreneurial women through stories about their experiences - the good, the bad and the real. 

 

At its inception, BOSS Talk was an in-person monthly event that was often described as a podcast recorded with a live audience. In 2021, the format evolved into a traditional podcast.

 

Far too often, we only see the highlight reels of entrepreneurship - which can lead to falling into comparison traps, glorifying busyness and neglecting self-care to keep up. 

 

So during BOSS Talk, we put aside the need to present ourselves as the perfect representatives of our businesses and we dive into those candid conversations that aren’t typically featured on social media platforms - especially those moments that haven’t quite hit the mark as planned. Moments that are filled with overwhelm. Moments when business failure lead to innovative systems. Moments when we learned the necessity of self-care the hard way. 

These are the moments that birthed and now sustain BOSS Talk - and here is some insider knowledge, the BOSS in BOSS Talk actually stands for Battling Overwhelm with Systems & Self-Care

 

BOSS Talk will both challenge and motivate you to build the life and business you want, listen in a get ready for a total #bossformation

BOSS Talk has given me the space to embrace and share my shortcomings as valuable lessons learned along with the opportunity to celebrate the strength of my resilience as a woman, wife, mother and most definitely as a boss.

 

If I can … you can.

I think my greatest takeaway from BOSS Talk is being reminded that it's okay to ask for help, because that's something that I don't typically do. These women are amazing, have amazing stories, and you should listen if you are a woman running a business.

Season 1

Business Isn't Busyness

When I ask business owners how they are doing, they often respond, “Good. Busy, but good.” Beyond that response, they usually want to know how to stop the madness and get off the hamster wheel of busyness in order to strategically level up their businesses. But too often they are so consumed by the busy work that they can’t seem to find the time to focus on innovation, outsourced support or building systems, which keeps them stuck in busyness - the ultimate catch 22. In season 1 we’ll learn from entrepreneurs that have moved beyond the time suck of busyness and are now doing less, better.

Business Isn't Busyness - Reclaim Your Time

Say no to being consumed by busyness and burnout trying to do everything on your own. You need a #bossformation - a powerful transformation from an overwhelmed business owner to a well-balanced boss. One of the first steps towards a #bossformation is firing yourself from the manual process of on-boarding new clients.
