Three Big Disasters in My Business & What They Taught Me About Success

I know that you know that everything I touch doesn't just turn to gold – in life, or in business. And as amazing as that would be, it would really rob me of some valuable life experiences.

On today's episode, we're going to take you behind the scenes of some of the worst days in our business and share why we now believe that each of these things that happened was actually happening FOR us and not TO us!

We'll share some of the lessons we learned along the way and how you can prepare for the inevitable situations that may come up in your business… because the more prepared you are, the less they’ll look like disasters!


At 1:53, we dive into disaster #1: the time that one of my designers erased the server that had my website on it. Yikes! What lesson did we learn? Besides the lesson & reminder to always have back-ups… our team learned some invaluable lessons about empathy, grace, and compassion.


At 9:06, I share disaster #2 which is all about the time NO ONE signed up for my group program. I could’ve let this define my worth. I could’ve ended my online business career right then and there! But instead, I share with you what lessons I learned from that and how it shaped me into a better coach.


At 14:00, we talk about disaster #3: the time I found out that one of my employees was stealing from me! It really was one of the biggest disappointments I’ve ever faced, but it taught me that the road to business success is going to be paved with seeming failures… it’s what I DO with those seeming failures that matters in the end.
