We all want to get more done, so that we can grow our businesses, launch our products and services, and have a happier life, but we don’t actually want to work harder.
We're told – work smarter, not harder.
Less hustle, more heart.
But is there a way to work harder and with heart – so you can have a life??
If this is how you feel about building your business, you are going to love my chat with Business Coach and Consultant Jenny Shih.
What I love about the way Jenny works is that whatever she puts out into the world, she does it with high integrity, massive respect, and in a super solid way.
People say they like having transparency in their businesses, but Jenny conducts her business in a respectful modest style that really stands out. She does things on her own terms with what is right for her life.
