#44 Online business myths
There are so many online business myths and success stories doing the rounds. As an online business owner, you cannot fail to see them or be attracted to them. It can be incredibly difficult to know what is and isn’t real, especially when you’re only being given half the story.
That’s why I loved chatting with Teresa Heath-Wareing for this week’s podcast. Teresa helps business owners from all around the world create a business and life they dream of, not what the rest of the world tells them they should have. Because success isn’t always about six figure launches and working from a beach - it’s about creating something that fits in with you, your family and your life.
