Pivoting your business until you create something that makes your heart sing is essential to your well-being. Being able to sit back with satisfaction and think, “I made this,” is one of the best feelings in the world. Today’s guest, Taylor Lou Dixon, shares her journey from a young social media manager to an inspiring women’s business coach.
Freshly graduated from college and supported by a family of entrepreneurs, Taylor looked at the career world with wide eyes. She was completely unsure what kind of path she wanted to pursue, so she opened her own social media management company. Taylor grew her business quickly by visiting local brick and mortar businesses to pitch her services.
While it felt great to have such a successful business at a young age, Taylor knew it wasn’t the right path for her. She ended up transitioning her career focus to something where she felt much more fulfilled: coaching women. She felt success with this business from the start, because she was much more aligned with her beliefs.
We live in an age where it’s so much easier to start your own business, with the existence of the internet. It’s a low-risk option that doesn’t have to involve complicated business plans and capital investment. But, Taylor says that starting your own business accelerates your personal growth.
We talk about how receiving coaching can help you recognize your own limiting beliefs. And finally, Taylor explains what masculine and feminine energy is and how we can nurture both aspects of our personalities.
