Business Blasphemy

Business Blasphemy

Sarah Khan, Chief Ease Officer, is calling B.S. on the hustle-focused status quo of online entrepreneurship and getting real about what it takes to grow a business that doesn't become a statistic. In each episode, Sarah helps navigate the rampant B.S. that permeates business strategy, marketing, operations, and mindset that has business owners hustling and pivoting themselves into burnout. She cuts through the noise and gives you guidance on how to view the status quo with a more discerning eye. If you're ready for success without the B.S., buckle up for hard truths, fun rants, terrible puns and (more than) the occasional curse word.

Mindset is a squidzillion dollar industry -- and it's easy pickings for people who want a quick-start business idea. Because it's also a ridiculously unregulated industry. And there are a lot of mindset coaches doing more harm than good.

This is NOT an indictment of the industry. Mindset is REAL... AND, there are times when mindset is NOT the issue.

In this week's episode, Sarah shares her thoughts ...
