1033. The Biggest Lessons We’ve Learned In Business With Kelly Kussman

My friend Kelly Kussman is back on the show to chat about the things we wish we knew when we first started out in business, especially when it comes to relationships. She has amazing tips for how to deal with gossip and react with integrity when you’re faced with an emotionally charged situation. Kelly also expands on what it was like to do a major rebrand and overcome the fears that were holding her back from executing on her vision.
