The “Formula” Myth of a 6-Figure Business (GPP23)

The Get Paid Podcast

Welcome to Season 2 of the Get Paid Podcast! For the next 11 episodes, I’ll be joined by my lovely co-host, Val Geisler, so we can dive deeper into some of the topics that my guests and I touched on in Season 1.

In this episode, Val and I discuss the myth (or is it a myth?) of the 6-figure business, and what it actually takes to get to that milestone.
