66 | Emotional Side of Taking Insurance Lactation Business Coaching with Annie and Leah

“I get so worried that even talking about money or any stress around money is going to negatively impact my relationship with my client.”

—  Annie Frisbie

Does your heart start pounding when you hear the word insurance?

It does for us.

Maybe it’s because not all insurances even recognize us as providers plus there’s the uncertainty about getting paid.

We also worry that money will negatively impact our relationship with our clients. It can be so stressful.

In this episode, we discuss the emotional side of insurance and how frustrating it can be.

Listen now to discover:‌ ‌ 

  • The frustration with only having one lactation code (1:46)
  • The stress of running a business while dealing with insurance companies (5:25)
  • Talking about money with clients (6:01)
  • How to move out of the emotional space of insurance (12:05)

“The fact that not all insurance companies even recognize us as somebody who could provide a service is just so frustrating.”

—  Leah Jolly
