MOMpreneur Success

Nov 29, 2021

“As mompreneurs, we have to get over the hesitancy to ask for money. And we have to get over the hesitancy to talk. Don't think of it as sales. But no, don't even think of it as marketing. Just think of it as I'm sharing who I am and what I have to offer.” - Cyndy McDonald 

Welcome to the MOMpreneur Success Podcast with Denise Fernander. In this episode, let me welcome our guest, Cyndy McDonald. She discusses the challenges and opportunities in these trying times, how we can attract the path towards exponential growth, and having a renewed perspective on sales to target the barriers to profitability.  Let’s get into it!

Key Quotes

“I think that's what we bring when we're working in a network or working in a coaching environment, or any other kind of collaborative experience. It’s helping each other and knowing that we all have similar thoughts and feelings. And either overcome them, let them limit you, or you go past them and use those as a springboard to move on to the next level.” - Cyndy McDonald

“You can go out there and be an expert in certain areas without having all the expertise. So don't let the fact that you don't know everything hold you back.” - Cyndy McDonald
