Let’s talk about all the scary moments that add up to "success" - however you define that word. The successful entrepreneurs that you admire are just like you and I. If my guests can achieve success, so can you - even if it means breaking the so-called "business rules" and making your own. Running your own business is hard, but doable. Fear is a natural part of the equation. You've got to carve your own path. Do things your own way. And unapologetically share your work with the world.

A must listen!
I love confessions of a female entrepreneur and look forward to every episode! It features such interesting conversations with inspiring boss ladies who are doing amazing things in the online world. Alyssa’s mission to have honest chats about the reality of running a successful business (behind all the glitz and glam of our social media accounts) is refreshing and empowering. It’s a must listen for new or experienced female entrepreneurs. Thanks Alyssa!
Raw & real conversations
I love the title and how ‘behind the scenes’ Alyssa goes in her episodes. It’s so nice and needed to get real experiences rather than the glorified social media news feeds we see. Business is hard and I love how Alyssa tackles this much needed topic!
Well done! Felt like I was listening to a really interesting and inspiring conversation between two friends in a cafe.
