Welcome back to BeREAL! This week, Diana and Ednesha are joined by Kasey Compton to discuss entrepreneurial confidence in business and therapy practices.
Kasey Compton is on a mission to help business owners find entrepreneurial confidence. She went from bankrupt to Boss Babe when she took her first company from zero to three million in less than three years without ditching her life to do it. She owns three other businesses that have accumulated assets of over three million and growing by the day.
Ednesha begins the episode by telling Diana all about her survivalist camping weekend that is coming up. Diana is shocked to hear all about Ednesha’s new “Naked and Afraid” style era, and also fearful of Ednesha’s desire to be “comfortable” while learning to survive the elements.
Then, Kasey comes in to begin talking about entrepreneurial confidence. She retells the story of how she got into business from the therapy field. As a therapist, she specialized in anxiety and panic disorders and her knowledge of fear plays heavily into her work as a business consultant. She has noticed that people have two ultimate fears: failure and being alone. Both of these fears play heavy into people’s views of themselves as employees and as entrepreneurs.
Next, Kasey walks Diana and Ednesha through a typical day in her life. She explains how she incorporates her business teachings into her own day-to-day. She emphasizes the importance of taking time for yourself after work and on the weekends. People tend to feel obligated to bring work home with them, but creating a healthy work/home balance is crucial to maintaining wellness within the workplace.
After a short break, the women return to discuss Black Woman Be Whole. Kasey uses Ednesha’s business as a case study on what to do as a business owner as your business grows. Kasey asks if Ednesha wants the future of Black Woman Be Whole to be independent of her identity or not. Ednesha says she does, and Kasey advises she distances herself from some of the programming from the beginning of the business. She also explains to Ednesha the concept of currency correlation, and the seesaw of time and money balance. Lastly, Kasey tells listeners about the programs she is currently running that they can be partake in.
