Being a Mission-Driven Entrepreneur with Jade McKenzie

Jade McKenzie is my first business bestie and what I would consider a mission driven entrepreneur. Her story has taken her through all kinds of businesses, from events management, to coaching, to ecommerce and yet every direction she turns, she is on her original mission.

From the moment we were paired together as coaching buddies for the Beautiful You Coaching Academy and we hit it off from the first second.

Through all the years of the ups and downs, we’ve been by each other’s side and I can say, without shadow of a doubt, that I wouldn’t still be doing my business if it wasn’t for having Jade to me going, to dream with, and vent with about the entrepreneurial journey.

Join us for this new Do Business Differently interview where we talk about:

  • 4:00 The way Jade’s business started as one thing and has evolved into so much over the years
  • 9:59 How our dreams change over time and why that’s absolutely okay
  • 18:31 The way that even when we transition through different phases of our lives but there’s often always a through line that’s connected to the deeper purpose of our work as a mission driven entrepreneur.
  • 21:29 Bringing all parts of yourself to your business and take the opportunities that feel aligned instead of feeling the pressure to be successful as a ‘solo business owner’.
  • 24:55 How to let go of caring what other people think about you to honour your greater life’s work.
  • 31:24 The way that we try to control everything, and what to do instead.
  • 33:04 Jade’s gems of wisdom for someone in a transitional season of their life.
