Background: Many women entrepreneurs struggle to scale their service businesses because they are stuck trading dollars for hours. That’s where Eleanor Beaton comes in. She works with over-worked consultants, coaches and service providers and helps them develop into confident CEOs who generate massive revenue, reach and impact. She helps female founders build lucrative businesses that grow through their ASSETS rather than their HUSTLE so they can scale past $1M in annual revenues, reach millions of people with their message, and cut their working hours by 20% or more.
During the show, Eleanor and I discuss her mission to double the number of women founders who SUSTAINABLE scale past $1M in annual revenue by 2030. She explains her Jewel Business Model — a growth model she espouses and supports her clients to create. It’s a 30-30-30 model of growth: 30% top-line revenue growth, 30% profit and 30% open, unscheduled time for the founder. Eleanor and I discuss how to fix the broken parts of capitalism and why the health of the global economy depends on developing more female entrepreneurs who are building sustainable businesses.
We also chat about overidentification with parts of ourselves and how doing so has held us back from living a holistic life. We discuss how we’ve worked through our overidentification issues to embrace all of ourselves fully.
This is an engaging interview that everyone, no matter their gender, will walk away from feeling inspired and joyful. Enjoy!
