“I wish I’d recognized that the only person I needed to prove something to was myself.”

—  Annie Frisbie

We can not believe that it has been 10 years since we became IBCLCs!

No matter how long you’ve been in business, it’s important to always reflect on what you’ve learned and how you will keep growing.

In this episode, we are doing just that! 

We are talking about how our businesses have grown, what we would have done differently, and the danger of thinking you have learned it all.

Listen now to discover:‌ ‌ 

  • Studying while also running a business (2:05)
  • The importance of reevaluating your goals (6:36)
  • How sometimes your plans don’t happen how you think they will (12:12)
  • Why you should always be learning (19:14)

“Think through where you’re at with your business, what you’ve learned, and how you want to keep growing and learning. These reflection times are super important as we continue to evolve.”

—  Leah Jolly
