Hosted by Kari Elizabeth Enge - Certified Life and Business Coach for Purpose-Driven Entrepreneurs at Rank & File

You don’t need another degree, more experience, more time, more money, the right business model, the right price, personality, better branding, a love for social media, or anything else to succeed as an impact entrepreneur.

What you need are skill sets. That’s it.

These skill sets are really just mindsets (ways of thinking) that will have you showing up differently than you are now.

You’ll stop searching for THE ANSWER, asking “will this work?”

Instead, you’ll start focusing on who you are BEING and how you are showing up each day instead.

Anyone can learn the mindsets. They are not hard.

When you learn them, you’ll find yourself reaching goals and enjoying the process much more than you are now.

The constant questioning happening in your head will be a thing of the past.

But the best news is this: the skill sets and mindsets that help you launch are the same ones that help you scale.

The entrepreneurial process is the same. You deepen your understanding of the skill sets and master them at each level over and over.

This is why learning CEO skill sets now is not something to put off until money is not as tight.

Doing what you are doing now, has only gotten you so far. It’s time to try something different.

So I hope you join me for the new Mini Series on the Rank & File Podcast, kicking off today.

Over the next three episodes, I’ll teach you how to BE in your business. I’ll walk you through the mindsets that will change how you show up to your business.

This will set you up for an incredible 2023, where you’re ready to tackle your next big goal (without having to sacrifice your personal life or sense of wellbeing).

The things you learn in these episodes will give you back more time, more ease, and more sense of enjoyment in your business.

We kick off the mini-series today. I’m introducing the skill sets to you (what I call ‘the Pillars of the Simply Sustainable CEO’) and why we need them.

This episode will debunk the myths about the entrepreneurship process most likely holding you back. And I’ll show you why you’re closer than you realize to your goals, if you’ll stop focusing on the HOW and start focusing on WHO you are being.

I’ll see you there.
