Have you ever wanted someone to lift the curtain and tell the truth about the messiness of motherhood and business, share what it takes to have a business partner, and be super honest about imposter syndrome on social media? If you want a backstage pass to what it really looks like to being your own boss when time is your most precious asset, this episode is for you.
In today’s conversation, I get cozy with Kathleen Shannon, the co-author of the book, Being Boss.
“I think that’s what part of being boss is; really assessing what you value and how you’re compensated. Right now, time is my compensation more than anything.”
– KATHLEEN SHANNON
