Do you wonder what it takes to grow a million dollar business? Especially when you have a big family and big ambitions to make a big impact in the world? If you have big entrepreneurial visions, but don’t want to lose sleep and sanity in the process, then this episode is for you.

In episode 132 of the Lead with Love podcast, Rachel Rodgers and I have an honest conversation about the ups and downs of the entrepreneur journey as a CEO, mom and wife.

Rachel Rodgers is the founder of Hello Seven where she helps entrepreneurs grow seven figure businesses. She has built her own seven-figure business while raising three kids, and she knows it’s possible to have it all – family, success, money, impact and eight hours of sleep. Rachel is an intellectual property lawyer and a business coach, and she’s also one of the guest mentors for my Love Over Metrics Incubator.

“Love yourself in the way that you do business and be that example for people.”
