12 I Myth Busters 👻 - Are these Myths about Entrepreneurship Holding You Back?
12 I Myth Busters 👻 - Are these Myths about Entrepreneurship Holding You Back?
What are the myths that are holding you back in your entrepreneurial spirit? In this episode, Helena and Nina are looking into four different myths, that have impacted their businesses, though some more than others.  Ready for a little sneak-peak? 👀 Sometimes, our naïvety may just be the asset we need, in order to dare to think in new ways. We can even be at our best when we are underqualified, doing something for the first time, as author Liz Wiseman described in her book Rookie Smarts... So, do we not need to be omniscient, to start our own business?  Let's bust some myths together and break through the limiting beliefs that have been, and maybe still are, holding us back! 💥 You can find more about the podcast on Instagram and TikTok @thestartup.radio.

Let that sink in for a minute and then join us for a conversation about why women should run the world... Or at least be more recognised in business. ;) We are convinced that we need to challenge John being the status quo and empower women to enact their right to take on leadership roles.  You can find more about the podcast on Instagram and TikTok @thestartup.radio.
