Keen to hear an inspirational story about someone quitting their job in search of more? Then today’s episode of Should I Start A Podcast is definitely for you. In this show, I had the pleasure of sitting down with Stephanie Taylor. Steph is an ex-corporate accountant turned entrepreneur and digital marketer.
Steph is smart, precocious and determined – she left a cushy accounting job to try her hand at entrepreneurship. In our conversation, we talk about her first foray into a self-run business, the challenges, benefits, and the efforts required. We also talked about pivoting, dealing with traditional-minded family members and how Steph recently launched her first course, FB Ads That Flourish.
