Navigating Entrepreneurship: What Doesn’t Get Shared Publicly with Christina Montalvo

July 25, 2019

We’re back at it again!  Christina of The Confidence Project Podcast is on with me today, and we’re talking about the shit that people don’t talk about when it comes to entrepreneurship.  No, seriously, there’s some things you need to hear.

We’re covering:

  • What no one tells you about being an entrepreneur
  • All the work that goes on behind the scenes
  • All the work that is FREE, and the delayed gratification that it requires to keep going
  • How people think they know you and make assumptions about you after seeing you post something on social media or watching your stories, and why it’s necessary to pick and choose what we share

This was a really fascinating discussion, at least for us, and brought a huge amount to the surface that you might not otherwise realize or notice in the online space.

“You never know the intentions of who’s paying attention”

– Christina Montalvo
