“I’m working way too hard for way too little money. How do I fix this?”

That’s the question that triggered a series of business model shifts in just a few years.

From charging hourly and then daily, to focusing on retainers for a while, Hillary tested what worked and kept refining it as she went. She now takes on high-ticket project work, and it’s giving her the freedom she’d been looking for.

Hillary’s shaping her business to work for her, and she calls entrepreneurship the Thunderdome of personal development.

“Success means being able to be the person you want to be while doing the work you want to do,” says Hillary. Hear her tell Steve how she’s striving for both.
