The Resilient Entrepreneur with Michelle Mercier

The Resilient Entrepreneur with Michelle Mercier

Ever found yourself wanting to throw in the towel? Or wondering...who actually succeeds at this entrepreneur thing?! Well...you've come to the right place! In 2016, I made the bold decision to walk away from the corporate space to build my dream business. Little did I know that I'd be building it alongside two amazing but medically complicated children, debt up to my eyeballs and two life changing diagnoses of my own. Fast forward to today - I now have two flourishing businesses, a healthy family and am loving my life! If I can do it....so can you! In this podcast, I'll share all my lessons learned along the way, as well as interview other entrepreneurs who have succeeded despite adversity. We’ll help you cultivate the right business knowledge and soft skills to succeed on your entrepreneurial journey. This show is for the entrepreneur who has an incredible vision to bring to the world and is determined to see it through no matter what life throws at them! Are you up to the challenge?!
