Sometimes we overcomplicate things in deciding to make that big leap. I love how relatively drama free Tracey Osborne’s transition was from working in corporate to becoming a full-time business owner. Starting her virtual assistant business as a side hustle and having networking ties in her community were a powerful combination in allowing her to quit her full-time job in just two months’ time.
What I also took away from the conversation was Tracey’s strong sense of discipline which ties in with her love for Spartan racing. Learn how setting boundaries and structures, can help set the stage for your success in business and life!
