How We Got Started as Entrepreneurs and Tips from Expert Business Coach Lisa Bilyeu

We’ve all heard the statistics and stories about starting a business — 90-95% of businesses fail within the first five years, entrepreneurs never sleep, and starting a business is like starting a family. So we’re dedicating this episode to dispelling some of these myths, and to tell our own story as entrepreneurs — as well as the lessons we’ve learned along the way.

We also talk to an expert business coach, Lisa Bilyeu — who helps others through the process of running their own business. Lisa is the Co-Founder of Quest Nutrition and Impact Theory, running both businesses alongside her husband. She’s also the Co-Host of Sheroic Podcast — a podcast that focuses on what it really takes to build your own happiness and define your own success.

Whether you’re considering starting a business or you’re already in the middle of it and want to learn more, this episode is for you! Join the discussion to get the inside deets on balancing your relationship and entrepreneurship, how Lisa redefined her role as a housewife to entrepreneur, and how she started her new company, Impact Theory.
