232: Mastermind with Tena: Overcoming Emotional Storms in Business

232: Mastermind with Tena: Overcoming Emotional Storms in Business

This Week’s Episode:

Today’s episode is the final installment of our special series of mastermind sessions we recorded with a small group of the ADHD reWired Coaching and Accountability Group alumni.

This episode is Tina’s turn in the hot seat.  When you listen, think about what questions you would have asked and what ideas you would have shared.  Then, share them with us in the comments section of this episode, or tweet at me @EricTivers.

In this conversation, we are going to help Tina address some challenges she’s having in her business. If you struggle with emotional flooding, overwhelm, or decision-making, you will like this episode.  If you are an entrepreneur, I think you’ll love this episode.
