The Goal Digger Podcast

Let’s play a game of word association. Ready? The word is CEO. What do you think of? I used to think of an old white man sitting in a boardroom leading a meeting. Let me tell ya, that vision has changed big time. It looks like a strong woman, a woman with vision, creating a business that serves others and creates a life she has always dreamed of living. I see her when I look in the mirror.  Claiming that CEO title and seeing yourself when you think of those three letters isn’t easy. You might still think of yourself as a hobbyist, a side-hustler, a small business owner… But CEO? That title is harder to claim when imposter syndrome starts creeping in. In this episode, Mahisha Dellinger opens up about the start of her business, why she prayed to be laid off from her corporate job, and the mindset hacks she uses to own her title to do big things for her business and the women she mentors.  GOAL DIGGER FB COMMUNITY: https://www.facebook.com/groups/goaldiggerpodcast/ GOAL DIGGER INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/goaldiggerpodcast/ GOAL DIGGER SHOWNOTES: https://jennakutcherblog.com/mahisha/

The thought of doing THIS when I was just starting out made me woozy.  Why is it so scary to hand off a piece of your business to someone else? When you're the one running the show, it can feel impossible to hand over even a little bit of the reigns. It could be a time thing (who has the TIME to hire and train someone?) or it could be a trust thing… Like who could actually do the thing just as good as you? I get it because I've felt ALL of these emotions. I was gripping onto my business with white knuckles ...
