Today on the podcast I am speaking with transformational business and branding coach, Betsy Milne. Betsy is the cofounder of Luscious Hustle, which is on a mission to empower women to build businesses that support the lives they want to live.
Betsy and I dive into chasing titles, working with chronic illness, and all the issues surrounding getting paid what you are worth. We share war stories of working in very masculine energy professions, and the toll it took. But we also share how we were able to transfer our skills to completely different industries in order to find health, happiness, and fulfilment.
