The Selah Entrepreneur - Simple & Sustainable Online Business for Women Over 50

The Selah Entrepreneur - Simple & Sustainable Online Business for Women Over 50

** Online Business ** Women Over 50 ** Health & Wellness ** Rested Entrepreneurs ** Have you been in business awhile and now feel stuck and unsure of how to get unstuck? Have you ever wondered if being over 50 means it’s too late to make big changes in your life and business? Have you taken all the business courses and still haven’t found the answer you are looking for? Are you struggling to balance all the hats you wear of running your online business, caregiving, taking care of your home, let alone taking care of your own chronic health issues? Is the stress and anxiety of “All The Things” just too much some days? Welcome! Please know that you are not alone. Here on the The Selah Entrepreneur podcast, my goal is to help you find ways to get unstuck in your business, cut through all the noise of conflicting advice, get clarity about your online business, and learn ways to reduce the stress and overwhelm you feel as you try to take care of your family, your health, your clients, and your business. Hi, I’m Marta Goertzen, entrepreneur and online business owner since 2008. I’m also a dog mom, fibro fighter, photographer, and caregiver. As a multi-passionate entrepreneur, it took me years to discover what I wanted to be when my business and I grew up. Getting clear about the work I truly enjoy, the type of business that works for me, and learning how to manage caregiving along with running my business has been a long journey. One I truly believe was well worth taking. The clarity I longed for didn’t come until I learned how important it is to add intentional rest to my schedule and give myself time to think, pray, and connect with other like-minded women who understood this crazy entrepreneurial journey. Developing a habit of rest gave me the mental space I needed to ask better, deeper questions that helped me finally see the possibilities of what my business could be like and take action instead of just hoping things would change. I’d love to share how you can find that clarity too. If you are ready for a business that works for you in the current season of life you are in. Then it’s time to stop buying all the courses, filling countless journals, and wishing that something would change. Let’s roll up our sleeves, ask those hard questions, as we sojourn together through life and entrepreneurship as women over 50. Join me as we talk about running an online business, managing stress and anxiety, stepping into the calling on our hearts, and taking the action needed to find the clarity we’ve been looking for, all without needing to burn the candle at both ends. Along the way we meet other women as they share their stories of clarity, calling and the journey it’s taken to get to where they are today.
