In this episode Kay Richardson and Heather chat about her journey as an entrepreneur. Kay shares the importance of pushing through your fears, of building a strong business foundation so clients can easily say yes.
“Regardless of the fear push through it. Because we are going to always have fear, we are going to always have self doubt. Go back into that little voice, that little person inside you who at one point in life thought there was nothing they couldn’t do. Go back and reach back towards that person to pull you forward. ” – Kay Richardson
