Overcoming the Mindset of Failure

Overcoming the Mindset of Failure

Gina Horkey is an entrepreneur-extraordinaire (to say the least) that left her 9-to-5 job to build her dream business of helping others live the life they want.

As a talented writer, teacher and creator, it only made sense that Gina outgrew the box society told her to fit into. Realizing that she had so much more to offer, she set out to use the tools and skills she acquired along the way to build a lifestyle that supported both her family and other entrepreneurs that were craving something different.

Gina’s journey of overcoming the mindset of failure has enabled her to bring her creativeness, kindness and teaching mastery to light, all the while producing endless opportunities for others to create their dream life.

The Human Side to Your Financials

We had the opportunity to speak with Megan Carter of The Nerdy Keeper about how she is making the leap from a 9-5 job to building the career of her dreams.

Megan prides herself on having a humanistic and understanding approach to handling your financials. Not only do her services provide that much-needed assistance with your books, but you also walk away with peace of mind (yes, you read that correctly).

Join us for this episode as we get to know the human side of bookkeeping, and how you can (actually) enjoy the experience!


I'd love to have you.

If you've got an inspiring story to tell, and you are building a real business like my featured guests, I would love to have you on the show. Just complete the form linked below, and come on over and join the Real Deal Business Coaching group (it's free!), where we showcase our members on this show.

One of the agendas of this show is to talk with small business owners who’re not only growing their businesses, but also battling the notion that there is a silver bullet.  And if you haven’t found it yet…you’re doing something wrong.

Sensational success stories give us the inspiration to take risks (often a good thing), but MOST of us, will have more organic, pivot-infested “slow growth” and we should celebrate that. Because it’s not easy. 

Stephanie has a way of preaching reality and slow growth and alignment while also amping you up and not bursting your bubble.
