Growth is a Removal Process | Growth Tip #1

Published on: 5th October, 2021

Welcome back to a new season of Women in the Business Arena! I’m so excited to spend this season exploring a topic that’s extremely personal and powerful to me. As entrepreneurs, we’re taught to always be growing: growing our client base, growing our offers, growing our profits. But for so many of us, “bigger” and “better” are actually opposites! Regular co-host and mental health expert Laura Shook-Guzman brings her insight back to our mic, as we introduce you to the possibilities we access when we let go of excess, dissolve old patterns, and remove what no longer serves us.

Join us as we discuss: 

  • The real freedom that comes from removing the patterns that no longer serve us.
  • The pressure the business world puts on women entrepreneurs to keep others happy, and never, ever set down a responsibility.
  • Paying attention to the messages our bodies and minds send when we need to simplify.
  • Why it’s so important to be thoughtful about where we’re directing our energy, our time, and our attention.

About the Podcast

Women in the Business Arena™
There is no one right way to do business, there is just a right way for YOU! And many women in business are DONE with hustle, bro-marketing culture, and business tactics that are misaligned with their values.

Instead, more women are looking to build a business that honors their passion, gifts & wisdom.

If you are ready for a DIFFERENT way to operate your business - one that brings ease, challenges the patriarchal status quo, and helps you make a difference in the world (with both your business & your bank account), then this podcast is for you!

Sonya Stattmann uses her 21 years of experience working with thousands of women in business to facilitate honest, educational & inspiring conversations with other women leaders, business owners, and experts.

She also has regular conversations with our resident mental health expert, Laura-Shook Guzman, to tackle mindset, thinking, and the patterns that sabotage women’s path to business success.

This is a DIFFERENT kind of business podcast!
