For MissNowMrs.com CEO Danielle Tate, failure was just a part of the process — an opportunity to see, well, the opportunities! When she graduated with a degree in biology from college, but failed to get into medical school by just three seats, it lead her to a great opportunity. When she tried to change her name to the newly married last name and failed (three times, thanks to a clunky process!) yet another opportunity. When she failed to find a book that spoke to her and her experiences as a first-time woman entrepreneur in her 20s who didn’t have business experience or an MBA, but had plenty of ideas — yep, opportunity.
Today, as the founder of her multi-million dollar name-change company and author of the Amazon bestselling book, Elegant Entrepreneur: The Female Founders Guide to Starting & Growing Your First Company, Danielle travels the world sharing the journey of building a business (which has more than 300,000 customers and is in two countries) and empowering other women entrepreneurs. On this episode of the Support is Sexy podcast, she gives incredible tips on how to shift your perspective on failure, how to market and grow your business, and how to dispel the mean-girl myth.
