End of the Year Recap 2021 with Stephanie + Courtney
2020 felt like the year that never ended. While every month in 2020 felt like three years condensed, 2021 just breezed by—we blinked, took a breath, and here we are, almost at the end of the year, planning for 2022. It only goes to show that life is so precious and short that you need to make the most of every moment, celebrate your wins, and take all your learning opportunities to heart.
In this episode, we take the time to pause and reflect on the highs, the lows, and the lessons we’ve learned in 2021. We share how our professional and personal lives changed in 2021 and the lessons we learned from running multiple businesses. We also discuss the mission behind the Entreprenista League, describe the biggest blessing we received this year, and underscore the importance of listening to your brand’s community.
