Andrea Mondoux took her book idea from that first speed typing session of 5000 words (in one sitting) to launching and hitting the Best Sellers List on Amazing on the first day on shelves.

These Entrepreneur Interviews are all about the climb.
Joyce does not have a huge profit margin or any big plans to take over the world and she is perfectly okay with that. For Joyce, it is about developing a side gig centered around supporting the local artisan economy.
Raeesa has built a business - RR Baby Co - that offers products and resources for new moms. It's all about sleep training, postpartum essentials and just about anything else she can share that'll help make #momlife easier. Also, she admits that even in a family of physicians, the tendancy is to worry about every little thing during pregnancy and the first year. This seriously made me feel better!!
TAKEAWAYS from this episode: - Know that life requires either inspiration or desperation. - Jenn is the only entrepreneur on earth who didn't really know much about Tony Robbins until today. - Virtual events outperform live events 2 to 1 if you can create the 'live' experience. Tony's event had 33,000 in attendance. - The path to success is to take massive, determined action. - A real decision is measured by the fact that you've taken a new action. If there's no action, you haven't truly decided. - The past does not equal the future. - Christine Dainard is a sunshine and her energy is infectious. This is also her key to success. - There are beautiful vineyards in Norfolk County. With views of the lake. Who knew?? And Buzz Tour Co. will take you there... HOMEWORK from this episode: - Start each day or task at 'Peak State'. ie. Dance in your kitchen or office for 30 seconds before getting started. Get your blood pumping and your mind activated. This is particularly useful if said task is one you don't look forward to. - Listen to yourself first. And your people second. If your people are naysayers, forgive them and move on to those who are cheering you on. Even if that only includes you. - Check out the local The Balance and Bliss Podcast hosted by Kim and Andrea. This is the second time their podcast has been recommended during an Entrepreneur Interview, so it's now officially homework. - Find your profit line and happy place in business at each Covid Phase, so that you can scale up or down as needed, no matter what restrictions are in place on any given week.
Mompreneur Coach and RISE Meetup leader, Katie Kahvo, has a knack for thinking big in all things - projects, business and life. When we're all struggling with staying afloat during Covid, she's pivoting and expanding. And frankly, she's just a joy to chat with. Listen in.
