I get to show up to lactation work as my authentic self working in the way that I feel gives me the chance to give the best service that I can give.

—  Leah Jolly


Do you feel that as the CEO of your lactation business, you are wearing way too many hats?

As a private practice owner, you have to manage everything from administrative tasks to the marketing of your business. It can be difficult to balance all of these tasks.

In today’s episode, we dive into how we juggle the many roles we have to take on in our private practices and how we are managing some better than others.

Listen now to discover:‌ ‌ 

  • The many roles that CEOs have to fill in their businesses (3:31)
  • Trying to implement systems into your business (8:08)
  • Keeping up with social media and new trends (15:13)
  • The power of learning from experts to grow (26:37)

“Our motivation is to have a foundational company that supports us in being able to reach these families.”

—  Annie Frisbie
