Entrepreneurship, the Great Equalizer | An interview with Danielle Tate

What is it really like to become an entrepreneur? How does it feel? What does it mean for your family, personal life, and finances? On today’s episode, Danielle Tate of MissNowMrs talks about how to tiptoe into entrepreneurship rather than overhaul your life into it, to make sure it’s the right decision for you and your family. Because women tend to be more risk-averse than their male entrepreneur counterparts, this ‘tiptoe’ approach tends to be a safe and successful approach.

Tune in to learn how Danielle defines success, how she balances family and work life, and how you can decide whether entrepreneurship is the right move for you!

In this episode, you will…

  • Realize that failure is ripe with opportunity—it may even contain your next business idea
  • Discover why encouraging yourself to have a good idea, daily, is key to staying inspired
  • Understand why it’s important to research the validity of your idea before starting a business
