I know our entire audience isn't entrepreneurs, but for those who are, this episode is for you. As well, if you are genuinely curious how business, branding and start ups work, it's a great conversation to listen in on.
I met our guest, Arielle Loren in 2015 when she attended my Wild Soul Movement retreat in Costa Rica. Ever since I've really enjoyed watching her business and trajectory evolve and we dove into all the parts in this conversation.
We talked about integrating larger social issues into business, which is what she's been doing by focusing on the disparity between how funding gets allocated to the rest of the entrepreneur field vs what's available to early stage, women of color founders.
She explained the difference between different types of funding, what "bootstrap mentality" means, and how to leverage and build credit and gain access to certain circles.
We explored where people waste their money in the early stages of running a business, the psychology and process to sales, working remotely, AND the role self care, focus and perspective play in running a sustainable business.
I also loved hearing about her various ventures over the years, living abroad, and how she landed in Miami as her current home base.
This is a rich and layered conversation. Enjoy and share!
