In this episode…

During a recession or pandemic, it is common knowledge that a number of small businesses struggle to survive and many of them end up going out of business. These are usually very challenging times for businesses and it affects everyone in every aspect: financially, emotionally, and psychologically. 

But according to Debbie Oberbillig, new businesses actually thrive during recessions and while things are not really going as wonderfully as you would have hoped, changing your mindset and adjusting the story you tell yourself can not only help you cope, it can help you see the opportunities that are out there if only you look with more scrutinizing lenses.

Debbie Oberbillig is a highly skilled coach and consultant whose companies have survived two recessions. She joins Andrea Heuston, as this week’s guest on the Lead Like a Woman Show where they talk about her early start in the entrepreneurial game, why she believes starting a business during a recession is actually a good thing, the importance of controlling your thoughts and feelings, and why she says that it’s totally okay to make and embrace failures and mistakes. Stay tuned.
