I’m delighted to have Casey Jourdan joining me as our guest for this week. Casey is a business strategist extraordinaire. She works with entrepreneurs and solopreneurs as they navigate getting their businesses up and running, and helps them navigate the overwhelm that often comes with the first few years of business. It's a real treat to have a conversation with Casey on change, and the pursuit of evolution. The host of “Steady She Grows” podcast, Casey's done some really interesting work around the pursuit of evolution and how change is a part of everything that we do.

In this episode, Casey Jourdan and I talk about:
-Her early sparks of joy: teaching others
-Creating various iterations of her business as a multipassionate
-Evolution as a practice
-The difference between evolution and growth
-How her religious beliefs changed and shifted after coming home from the Iraq War
-Progress and baby steps living with PTSD
-Navigating the first few years of business and why so many businesses fail
-How to jump start joy in your life: be nice and kind to others, find out what fires you up and go try it, set and observe boundaries.
