Listen to our real-life lessons and what we’ve learned along the way to grow and scale our businesses to six and seven figures! We have one simple goal: to connect with other entrepreneurs through meaningful conversations about running your own business, what has and hasn’t worked for us and benchmarking our wins and losses.
In the end, we are developing an entrepreneurial community focused on encouragement, connectedness and sharing insights that are both authentic and actionable.
This is our inaugural episode! Learn how we ultimately ended up as entrepreneurs, some of our early mistakes, and if we actually like to refer to ourselves as, “entrepreneurs.”
We are so excited to introduce Thomas Barr, VP of Business Development for Local First Arizona. He’s joining us for a very important conversation around progressive business trends that have emerged and ways we can continue to do business, for good.
Just like personal finances, business finances are tricky as f**k and to our surprise, it doesn’t always add up! There’s a lot to the money, so this is part one of many segments.
Bridgett has been an unofficial entrepreneur for close to 15 years, aka the Robin to her husband’s Batman as he started business after business. She officially became an entrepreneur in 2015, launching a consulting company before starting a residential cleaning company, with her husband, Marcus, in late 2017.
In a little over three years, Bridgett and her husband have grossed over $1.2 million dollars in sales and have been profitable every year in business, (whew, what a relief)! When she isn’t plotting and scheming her next idea or venture, she’s either reading a great book, catching up on reality T.V., or enjoying a glass of wine (all three on any given Sunday is optimal).
Lauren never imagined she would grow up to become an entrepreneur! She still considers herself a newbie, but is now 1.5 years deep into full-time self-employment and (mostly) used to all the ups & downs.
She’s currently working on a software consulting business with her husband, Brian (and adorable pup, Indiana Bones). Oh, and recording this podcast! She’s a huge fan of remote work, an advocate for mental health & progressive company culture policies, and a sucker for a cute mug & cozy sweater.
