#581: Create A Profitable Business That Keeps Growing Even When You’re Offline With Steph Taylor

June 15, 2023

Listen on…


It’s totally possible to scale your business without having to hustle harder – here’s how Steph Taylor did it

Do you feel like you’re working around the clock in your business? Like if you step away for a few days (or heck, even a few hours), the wheels will come off the tracks? 

I know I’ve been there before, sweet friend, and let me tell you — being glued to my laptop 24/7 was definitely not part of the vision of entrepreneurship I had when I first went off on my own. 

Unfortunately, all-too-many business owners create businesses that simply cannot function when they’re not there, which makes it impossible for them to take that much-needed vacation, or even escape to the spa for an afternoon. 

My guest on today’s episode, Steph Taylor, has experienced this firsthand. In fact, the first iteration of her business wore her into the ground — requiring so much of her that she ended up in the hospital. 

It was a turning point, to say the least – and today, she has a profitable and sustainable online business that continues to grow when she’s offline (and even off the grid).

In this episode, Steph shares her inspiring story of how she 10X’d her business revenue without having to hustle harder, and created a business where she has true freedom with her time. 

You’ll also hear:

  • The mistakes Steph made in her business that she’ll never make again
  • What she did to 10X her revenue and regain ownership of her life
  • Processes you can implement to get away from your business for longer periods of time
  • What it means to take imperfect action and why it’s so important to do as an entrepreneur

So, sweet friend, if you’ve ever felt like your business has started to own you (instead of the other way around), then pop in your earbuds and press play on this episode right now.
