I often say that the path of an entrepreneur gets really messy sometimes, but with a little shift in perspective, these ugly moments can actually be invitations for you to step into something bigger and better for your business.
Today I am joined by Education Leadership Consultant & Entrepreneurship Coach Dr. Erica Jordan-Thomas to talk about what they don’t say about successful leadership and building a 7-figure business. From former school principal to now founder of EJ T Education Group, which houses EJT consulting and Six-Figure Educator, Dr. Erica Jordan-Thomas is on a mission to help Black women grow their education consulting businesses into six and seven empires.
In this episode, we talk about all the lessons that we’ve had to learn the hard way to build a multi-figure business. We talk about the catch-22 of successful leadership, creating & protecting your company culture, getting your team invested in your vision, going from delegating tasks to delegating decisions, and slowing down in order to speed up. We also open up about the identity crises that we went through as business owners and the shedding of our old selves in order to step into the 6, 7, or 8-figure business owner that we’re meant to be.
Erica drops a tonne of gems on me in this episode, so you definitely do not want to miss out on this - join in on the conversation and learn all about the unspoken yet vital parts of entrepreneurship with me and Erica today.
