Episode 257: How to Boss Up and Build Your Empire

How do we unpack the lies that keep us from experiencing extraordinary success?

One lie in particular that holds most people back is that “big is bad.” It’s tricky to debunk because, when you put “big” and “results” in the same sentence, many people jump straight to thinking that big is complex, time-consuming, or intimidating.

But the four ambitious leaders of the Empire Building podcast live in a way that embraces big thinking. The massive goals they’ve set for their businesses are only exceeded by their even bigger visions for what it means to live an extraordinary life. They are successful entrepreneurs, philanthropists, wives, and mothers who have started and expanded multi-million dollar businesses, and they share their tips for thinking bigger than you ever thought possible.
