268: Why Business Owners Need Community


In this episode of "Doing What Matters," our focus is on why business owners need community.

My guest is Victoria Mininger. She sheds light on the significance of investing in oneself when building a business team and the necessity of personal growth for effective leadership. We discuss the challenge of not bringing people on board soon enough in a business and highlight the importance of hiring help and passing off tasks.

Victoria emphasizes the value of community for business owners, underscoring the support, solutions, and camaraderie it offers. She reveals her own personal challenge of self-doubt as a business owner, expressing excitement about doing life with other business owners and seeing them grow.

We would love to invite you to join the REALIFE Process Circle community. Victoria is one of our collaborators. You can connect with her personally inside the community.
