Episode 003: Show Notes

On today's episode, i was joined by the amazing Ashely Beaudin! Some of you may know Ashley from her social media campaign turned massive movement - The Imperfect Boss.

There was nothing but loving, giggle-filled vibes during this recording so I apologize in advance if you break out into one of your own giggle-fits. But hey technically I should be saying you're welcome! There's nothing better than a big ole belly laugh.

If you've ever contemplated sharing your own story with the world but just felt completely overwhelmed with no idea where to start... you're going to want to listen in to this episode.

Ashley and I talk about the importance of pitching key influencers to gain momentum in your movement, how to get their attention, and what not to do.

We dive into the meaning of imperfection, the definition of a movement, and what it's really like to be a business owner.

Plus, you'll even hear me in my essence of imperfection... TWICE. Looks like I'm taking a trip to Canada ;)
