Welcome to Episode 11 of the Your Brilliant Un-Career Podcast Show! What’s standing between you and phenomenal success could be, well, yourself. In this interview with Tradies Business Show co-host Michaela Clark, you will gain massive insights on why you’re on your way to burn out as a business owner, how you can change course and quickly turn that around. Michaela had a successful business but was working like a slave. She niched down and then started a podcast in partnership with another business owner and its popularity has skyrocketed and lead to amazing opportunities with more than 10,000 listeners in 4 months. An inspirational episode, particularly if you’re feeling stuck.
