Before I share today’s episode I want to make it abundantly clear that I hate being dramatic so even talking about this is totally uncomfortable for me because other people are not so lucky to have it just be a scare… and if you’re one of those people or you have a family member who’s currently fighting cancer – know that I’m sending so much love to you and your family.
I didn’t share this as it was happening as I deeply believe in processing and digesting things first before you share it all out to the world. In my opinion, when we do this we are of better service to others.
SO in today’s episode, I want to share how processing this scare has influenced my business.
Let’s dive in…

Hello There Listeners and welcome back to the Savvy Business Show.
When we look at the online business world and what they teach it’s all the sexy shiny “make your first 6 figures in 60 days” Or Your blue-print to 7 figures now! …
And I get it… that’s the sexy stuff, the “cool marketing strategies”
But the reality of the matter is that a sustainable and profitable business takes WAYYY more than just sexy marketing, a funnel or drip campaign… it involves way more than converting clients and making sales…
And the online #girlboss #bossbabe rah-rah world NEVER talks about the rest…
And I get it – it’s not sexy… but this stuff that they’re not discussing is CRUCIAL to building concrete and solid business.
SO what does all this have to do with my recent cancer scare?
You see I grew up with a dad who worked in the debt collection side of a bank for a while. This is the department that goes to repossess people’s belongings.
My dad had some funny stories of people shooting at them when they would go to give notice that things would be repossessed. But he also had some very sad stories of widows who lost everything because their husband died and they didn’t have insurance….
Hence when my husband asked if he could marry me – my dad’s first question before giving him permission was:” Do you have life insurance!?”
The thing is we never know when we’re going to get that scare that turns into real bad stuff…
So when I received my scary news back in May 2019 – it immediately made me think of all the things in my business that’s been on my to-do list ( but because they’re not sexy to do had been pushed to the back burner…)
A lot of the processes and foundational work in my business have already been set up pretty well – but there was one big loophole for me and that was disability insurance and a life insurance policy for myself.
Running a business is a risky business as it is – so making sure that everything’s set up to support and keep you as safe as possible is really important for you to be able to then do the “sexy” business stuff with more confidence and ease.
SO what in your business isn’t bulletproof yet?
Have you tightened up your contracts, health insurance, do you have an operations manual?
Can your team continue to run with things when you are not there?
Are all the passwords to everything available somewhere for team members?
What do you have to take care of now so you can have peace of mind? Take action now – trust me it’s going to make you feel so supported and safe and will then help you to grow a successful business with a strong foundation.
