A founder’s guide to sustainable business growth

Over the past few months I’ve had the pleasure of speaking to multiple industry professionals about what I do and how I do it. These free resources address topics every self-funded founder should know and be thinking about.

While we all covered a wide range of topics, the most consistent was the concept of business growth and how to do it in a way that’s manageable.

What Businesses Need to Know Right Now

Okay, this first one isn’t free but it is affordable. I’m featured in a book! What Businesses Need to Know Right Now Vol 2 – How to Flourish in Uncertainty by Nettie Owens is now available.

The book features 48 bite-sized interviews with business leaders on strategy, leadership, money and law, people, productivity, and mindset. It’s available in paperback and Kindle. Order it here! My interview is all about growing your business. Our original interview is also available to watch on YouTube.

MaYapinion™ – The Leadership Podcast for Women

Does it ever feel like there’s way too much to know? And how do you figure out what actually makes a difference? I kicked off International Women’s Month 2022 with serial entrepreneur Maya Roffler of the MaYapinion™ podcast. In this episode, we discuss: 

  • How I started my company and eventually transitioned from Founder to CEO of The Jill James
  • The importance of identifying and delegating things you hate 
  • The differences between a founder and a CEO
  • Building a professional team
  • The process of creating values and visions for your business
  • Advice to women about stepping up in leadership

This conversation is filled with excellent resources for those who are just getting started in business or founders who are starting to level up.

Influential Entrepreneurs with Mike Saunders, MBA

The U.S. Census Bureau reported a record 5.4 million new businesses were started in 2021. Add that to the 4.5 million in 2020 and we’ve got nearly 10 million new businesses. 98% of these will be self-funded. If you’re one of these founders, are you getting the right advice for growth?

It was my pleasure and honor to be featured on the Influential Entrepreneur podcast with Mike Saunders, MBA. Mike and I spent a tight 20 minutes running down the core things self-funded founders need to know to grow sustainably and how I use that in my Business Design Bootcamp.

Guts, Grit, and Great Business

Guts, Grit, and Great Business. What a perfect invitation!

When Heather Campbell invited me to be a guest on her podcast, I knew this would be a terrific conversation about how we each support founders in their evolution to CEO.

In this conversation I share how I got into the financial sector by accident, how I’ve helped hundreds of small business founders become CEOs of their businesses, and the shift in mindset that is required. Heather also quotes GDP and Census data so you KNOW I was into it.
