In this solo episode, Giselle opens up about why and how she launched a digital course. What seems like a couple of months of preparation for the course was really three years in the making. Giselle spills it all to encourage those that dream about making digital products but hold themselves back for many reasons — just like she did to herself.
Giselle covers: product ideation, goal-setting, prelaunching and launching, imposter syndrome, progress over perfection, Essentialism by Greg McKeown, business coaching, overcoming shame, mental health challenges, and future ideas for the course.
First off, I have to give a huge shoutout to the women that impacted my life to build Wander Design and also guide me through the digital product world. That includes my previous coaches and current friends: Avani Miriyala, Jane Scudder, and Kelsey Kerslake.
I also wanted to address the importance of taking care of one’s mental health in this episode. What started as a simple dream to make passive income turned into a true passion to serve my community. My imposter syndrome and shame from personal struggles were set aside by my desire to help creativepreneurs like me feel supported in the highs and lows of work/life balance.
My hope is that we as entrepreneurs can have the space to step back when our personal lives call for it and not feel ashamed nor lose the momentum we worked so hard to build for our businesses.
