EPISODE SNEAK PEEK:
”The more embarrassing and uncomfortable and awkward moments that you have, the more you grow. You should constantly be embarrassed of your past self.”
with Kayla Dugger
WHAT'S IN THIS EPISODE?
There’s another side of entrepreneurship we don’t talk about a lot. The leaving. It happens. A lot. And just like starting a business, leaving one has it’s own closet full of anxieties and doubts and fears and, well, really hard shit. In this episode, Kayla Dugger, shares all about the hard shit, the middle of night ugly cake baking, the anxieties she tried too hard to mask, and that moment when she finally said ‘bye’.
If you’re just starting out, Kayla shares some soul-shaking truth that may change how you’re doing what you’re doing (seriously, go listen). If you’re knee-deep in the anxiety-filled swamp and are wishing someone could just come rescue you and whisk you away, Kayla shares what she wishes someone would have told her a year ago (it’s real and powerful and honest and I think you may need to hear it).
We talk about…
The hard parts of being a 23-year-old entrepreneur with two businesses and a business partner
The inner conflicts she faced as a young entrepreneur
Why she exited both businesses and sold her halves to her business partner
What the year after has looked like
Getting honest with herself about her anxieties and her ego
Coping with anxiety and taking responsibility
Why she’s not ready for entrepreneurship again just yet
What she wishes someone would have told her before she left
