Show Notes

After hearing her story, I knew that I had to bring Lindsay on the podcast.

Her story is very similar to my own, only she is a few steps ahead of where I’m at to this point.

After realizing her current work situation was no longer suitable for her own goals and aspirations, Lindsay decided to take a leap that not many would be brave enough to do. Leave behind a stable job, without a definitive fallback plan in place.

In the episode, Lindsay shares how she navigated this unknown territory, and with the help of a coach, was able to successfully launch her own personal training business.

Since then, Lindsay decided to make another major shift in her career to help aspiring entrepreneurs leave behind their 9-5 jobs as well.
