Doors will re-open on Friday to the Just Start Now community and I thought this would be a perfect time to invite a guest onto the podcast who has some great advice to share on how to choose what to invest in what it comes to your wellness business.

Kendall Platt is The Mindful Gardening Coach and as well as a Just Start Now member has invested along the way in her business journey in support, accountability and training to create a flexible and enjoyable work-life around her two young children.

What support and training to invest in when you’re a solopreneur can feel really overwhelming. There is so much choice and so many urgent marketing messages about what’s right and wrong for you. Kendall and I have both been down those rabbit holes and so we have an honest chat about what’s worked and what hasn’t for us.

In this episode we talk about: 
  • Kendall’s transition from full-time forensic work to running her own business alongside having two daughters, and the different iterations that her products and services have taken along the way.
  • Getting sucked in to marketing promises and quick-fix solutions sold to business owners and the difference between conspicuous and conscious consumerism when it comes to spending on sustainable support.
  • The benefits and game-changing content inside Just Start Now that Kendall has found most useful and what her advice is if you’re considering joining yourself.
  • The biggest mistake Kendall’s made in the last few years which is still taking up space in her cupboards!

Doors open for Just Start Now on Friday 22nd September – join the waitlist now (or sign up when doors open 22-27th September 2023).
