223. Is There Ever a Time When Growth Is Not the Goal?

A popular saying in the business world is, "If you're not growing, you're dying." This is a capitalistic, masculine philosophy, and for better or worse, following this message keeps entrepreneurs like us growing everything, without asking questions. Has this culture of growth, self-development, and YOLO gone too far? If you're an ambitious woman, what does non-growth focus even look like?

This might seem counterintuitive, since I show up each week and teach you that we should be pursuing something new, big, or different in order to expand, collect failures, and ultimately make more money. But is there a season, a year, or any period of time where not growing is the oxymoronic growth you actually need in your life and business?

Tune in this week to discover whether there is ever a time when growth shouldn't be the goal. I encourage you to question your own beliefs about growth as an entrepreneur, I discuss my own experience of the pursuit of growth as a woman, a mother, and an entrepreneur, and you'll learn how to explore whether focusing on not growing is in itself a growth opportunity for you.
