SDH 270: Multi-Million Dollar Revenue Business with Shannon Miles
Have you made a decision that you put a lot on the line? Have you reached a point where you think there's no next right step for you? You might take a path but that doesn't lead you in the right direction and you know you need to make a big change.
Today's guest, Shannon Miles, founder of BELAY, a company that provides highly trained U.S. based remote bookkeepers, administrative assistants, webmasters, and content writers, together with her husband, Bryan had to deal with those challenges in transitioning from corporate America to entrepreneurship. They took the leap to transition from their own corporate jobs to fully managing their own company.
For some of their family and friends, the idea of them leaving both their jobs at the same time is a crazy and risky idea! But for Shannon and Bryan that place which felt stable and safe was no longer secure, fast forward to 18 months from them leaving, Shannon's company had laid off some of their employees and same goes with her husband. If they did not take the decision to leave and start on their own, they could have been one of them.
