This conversation with Lyanne was so amazing! We love how not only has she immersed herself in this entrepreneurial world as a storyteller, but she also gets to participate in it! She’s taken off all these skills that she’s acquired throughout her corporate experience and is now using them in a different way, as an entrepreneur. We’re always telling our people that there are so many professional skills you pick up along the way that you can turn into your own business. Lyanne is a prime example of that and we know this episode is gonna be what you need to start utilizing your own skills to become your own boss! Gracias amiga!
Until next time, stay empowered, stay inspired and #staypoderosa ✨
