031 – Getting the support you need for your worklife

Dr. Maelisa Hall and Amber Hawley look at the networks you need to support you as a woman entrepreneur.  They discuss the options:  Biz Besties (a dedicated sounding board); masterminds; tribes; 1-on-1 and group coaching.  We also discuss options of how to structure these network options, why women aren’t as good at leveraging their networks, and making sure you overcome the isolation of entrepreneurship.  Both are licensed therapists, yet both have different non – therapy related second businesses (including their joint podcast show).
