Do you hear chatter about six-figure, seven-figure, and even eight-figure metrics? It seems like everyone is talking about them, right? But how many people are actually talking about who you need to be to hit those elusive metrics in your business? Sure there is talk about the marketing strategy and the sales strategy, don’t get me wrong, these are important. What’s more important? WHO YOU need to be is so much more important. 

Today, I have the wonderful opportunity to chat with a coach that brings together the mindset work with the strategy work to get those results. It’s not just about being a “doer” of all the things in your business, but it’s about being the CEO you are working so hard to be. 

Julie Ciardi is a former Fortune 500 marketing executive who has taken her passion for business & marketing to help women create businesses & income streams that create passion, purpose, profit and protection for themselves and their families. Julie is the podcast host of IGNITE Her Mind, which I highly recommend.

If you feel stuck, or if you feel like you’ve tried all the strategies in your business, or if you feel like you can’t get to this next level – this episode is for you!
