Flashback to 2012:

Him: “Honey, you should start your own business.”

Me: “No way! I am not the entrepreneurial type. I just don’t have it in me.”

Flash forward to 2017:

Me: “My business has been serving corporate and individual clients around the world since 2013.”

What shall I say, “Honey, you were right.” or rather, “I proved me wrong.” ? Maybe both.

We tend to divide people into groups. We see ourselves also in these buckets. The “entrepreneurial type,” the “stay at home mom,” the “employee.” True some people thrive in some roles over others, but do we really give ourselves a chance to prove otherwise? To prove ourselves wrong on what is and is not possible?

Week 5 of this Six-Week Expert Series on Expat Happy Hour kicks off our focus on Your Business – the one you already have, or the one you dream of.

Your Business can dramatically improve your life and wellbeing.

It is my pleasure to have Haley Lynn Gray of Leadership Girl join us as an expert on helping small businesses grow. Haley is an ATCK (adult Third Culture Kid) who is committed to helping small businesses get more visible, become the go-to expert in their industry, and save them money. Haley is also the founder of the 60,000 strong Women’s Entrepreneur Network Group on Facebook.

Here’s a taste of what you’ll discover in this week’s episode, Taking the Leap Into a Small Business With Haley Gray:

  • The top 3 mistakes small business owners make when starting out (and how it costs them significant money and time)
  • The secret to really caring for your business so it can grow
  • The biggest benefit she has seen after quitting her corporate job to run her own business.

What I love about Haley’s approach is that she moves away from cookie-cutter solutions. She believes that each leader and business has its own unique fingerprint, and working with one’s unique strengths and weaknesses that we see the best results.

Listen now to learn more what you can do to run a small business that thrives.

Here’s to being smart about your biz.
