I am always blown away by how connecting with fellow purpose-driven entrepreneurs in an open and authentic way ends up being so much more beneficial to both people rather than hustling.

And, my friendship with Claire Pettibone is a great example of this. So, I am excited for you to meet Claire on today’s new episode on the Rank & File Member Podcast.

The Back Story on My Friendship with Claire

Claire and I originally connected a few months back over the phone – when I put out an invitation on the Rank & File blog asking readers to do a quick phone interview with me about their experiences and challenges as purpose-driven entrepreneurs. And Claire, signed-up!

During our phone call, Claire brought up one of the challenges she was having as a new founder, which really resonated with me because I had also experienced it: ever-growing to-do lists that end up making you really unsure of what to prioritize or even unclear about the entire direction of your business strategy…

On our phone call, I ended up being vulnerable with Claire about my struggles with overwhelming to-lists as well and shared some of my lessons learned on how to stay objective with our business ideas and strategies.

I was so inspired by our conversation and knew that the takeaways would be really useful for all of you, so I asked her to co-write an article in Issue Nine of Rank & File Magazine with me.

Inside the article, we both share our lessons learned from our phone call. Claire first, and me second. It’s sort of a memoir of our conversation and what we both learned from being authentic and vulnerable with each other. The article came out really cool, and I hope you check it out after you listen to the podcast episode!

On today’s podcast episode Claire and I are going to dive into this topic on:

  • how to stop hustling for the wrong reasons
  • how to get clarity on moving forward without overwhelm
  • and how to objectively look at our to-do lists for our business

We are also going to play the audio recording or our original phone call mid-way through the show- which will be really fun!

There is so much good stuff packed into this episode, so let’s jump in with Claire, founder of Madison Grace.
