EP13: Busting Business Myths with Teresa Cleveland

There’s a lot of business advice out there, particularly when we first start a business, that simply isn’t true. My guest, Business Growth Strategist & Mentor and fellow BS-buster, Teresa Cleveland is joining me to unpack popular business “truths” that aren’t always effective. We talk about why it’s important to trust ourselves and not this week’s guru, how we can resist the pressure to conform, and what that looks like for our businesses. Because the truth is, any business strategy can work, but only when it aligns with your mission, vision, and values.

Bullet Points:

  • Why people get defensive when you question their methods.
  • Why we need to normalize exploring and learning from our mistakes.
  • Questions to ask yourself before you invest in a program.
  • Why it’s okay to walk away from programs that don’t work.
  • The importance of reconnecting with why you’re doing what you’re doing.


“So, bring your own special sauce to the table…that’s the thing that is going to differentiate us from one another and the way that we deliver things.”  Teresa Cleveland
