Your growth and your ability to scale and make more money in your business depends on your willingness to allow other people to fail. It depends on your willingness to tolerate other people’s mistakes.

What you'll learn from this episode:

  1. You don’t have to give up tasks you love to do or that are your superpower.
  2. What the definition of “doing it wrong” is to female entrepreneurs.
  3. There are people who know how to do what you’ve been doing, and some can even do it better than you.
  4. Just because team members sometimes mess up doesn’t mean you dismiss the idea of having help.
  5. The investment you make in yourself to be able to learn how to hire, train, onboard, delegate and then hold people accountable - exponentially pays off in your company.

  2. Many female entrepreneurs think that their expectations are too.
  3. The Olive Garden analogy.
  4. Many women think it’s selfish to 1) expect things to be done and 2) to want them done in a certain way.
  5. Female entrepreneurs tend to worry about what other’s expect of them.
  6. This self-evaluative judgement is not useful; it drags you down. Guilt is not useful.
