What Are The Two Biggest Issues Facing Entrepreneurs?
If you ask this question to traditional entrepreneurship educators, they'll likely say something like 'creating a solid business plan, and selling'. And sure, those can be challenges for any entrepreneur. However, both of those challenges, and many other challenges we face as business owners, are HEAVILY tied to the ACTUAL things getting in the way of many side hustlers and entrepreneurs as they start and grow their businesses.
We have had countless conversations with hundreds, if not thousands, of people over the years, and we now know that the two BIGGEST issues for entrepreneurs are:
- Managing your time, focus, and energy.
- Managing your mindsets.
If you aren't focusing on how you're spending your time, what you're focusing on, and what games your brain is playing to keep you from showing up as your full, shiny, powerful self in your business, then no amount of work on a business plan, or focus on "selling" will help you move forward.
We have seen firsthand the power that having effective planning rituals and regular mindset support can have on making better choices, working more effectively, and in helping to prioritize the currencies that truly matter to you and the life you want to build. The sessions we have built to address these issues are based around expertise we've built internally, and in the work we do with coaching clients and students from our courses and community.
We're so excited to be bringing these sessions to the public for the first time as we head into the final weeks of the year. Now, let's get into what these sessions are all about!

A Success Mindset for 2023
As we head into a new year with new goals, it’s important to give our mindsets a tune up and realignment, so we can step into our highest potential and stay accountable to our plans and goals.
There are things that can get in our way as we are in pursuit of our dreams:
- Self doubt and imposter syndrome
- Indecision and freeze modes (feeling stuck)
- Saying yes to all the things, not knowing where to start
- Procrastination and perfectionism
This session is going to break down all the mindset blockers that can get in our way and help you to install rituals and systems to overcome them and stay accountable this year.REGISTER
What a member of our community had to say about mindset coaching with Lacey
"I just wanted to let you know how impactful the coaching session last week was for me! So much of what you said resonated with me, it was so very helpful that you’ve had shared experiences and could provide very tangible recommendations and insights. I had so many key light bulb moments!
I think that most of all I was able to realize what’s been keeping me frozen and exhausted, literally immediately after the call I had renewed energy I haven’t had since before the pandemic! I’m now seeing this as an opportunity to rebuild the life I want and am starting to see what this looks like, which has lifted the clouds. I’m feeling excited and energized to move forward. Your coaching was key in opening this up, I’m looking forward to the next one!"
Join us for one or both of these creative sessions, which are meant to help you plan where your time and energy will be spent in 2023, and to help you find strategies to remove blockers that are getting in your way as you work to start and grow your side hustle/business.
