9. Nisha Moodley’s Wisdom
What many entrepreneurs seem to forget in today’s fast-paced, “go-getter”, “grind & hustle” age is that their business is truly a direct reflection of who they are. While developing the necessary skillsets & work ethics to build a profitable business from the ground up is undeniably part of the equation, ultimately, the money and clients you attract is purely an outcome of your “vibe”, your energy & core beliefs. This is why, building a LIFE while building your bona fine business is a MUST! Nisha strongly believes that when a woman feels truly free in her life, it expands her capacity to make a massive difference in the world, I couldn’t relate more to this empowering statement. Find out how to have your life and work flow like poetry and create ever-expanding freedom and sustainability through her blog posts & sisterhood coaching programs. You go GURLLL!
