A newsletter for women who want to build thriving businesses.
It’s about getting clear about what you want. And then expressing that from a place of heart-centered truth. I know that sounds fluffy. But it’s hard and it’s scary. Communicating what you feel in your heart will rearrange your life.
Hope this note finds you well and, if you’re an east-coaster, staying warm after this crisp, autumnal weekend.
...and it wouldn’t be fully fall for me without some dedicated reflection time. I tend to start doing my bigger, deeper reflecting in fall, so that way when January comes around I’m READY TO GO.
Right now I’m reflecting on YOU, my Big Whisper readers. What makes you tick? What do you *really* need and want as you continue to build your entrepreneurial life? Would you let me know by taking this short reader survey? I estimate it will take about 5-10 minutes. PLUS, by completing the survey (if you choose to include your e-mail address), you will be entered for a chance to win a Junes bag.
Sending you all the vibes for a great rest of the week.
P.S. Know someone who'd dig this newsletter? Pass it along!
REAL-TALK FROM FOUNDERS IN THE TRENCHES
"Ultimately a great business comes from passion, that feeling that you’re creating something that needs to exist and has a clear purpose. Even if your ultimate goal is an acquisition, you could end up running the business for much longer than you expected, so it should be something you care deeply about and will want to work on for many years to come."
Wellness media company, Well+Good, was acquired this past summer by Leaf Group for $10M.
Well+Good's founders, Alexia Brue and Melisse Gelula, bootstrapped the company since its founding in 2010.
Elana Gross spoke to Brue to learn her advice for other founders who hope to have their companies acquired.
