Back in late 2020, I started working with a 1:1 client who is a dog trainer. Like many solopreneurs, she had visions of running a massive business while growing a family.

This back and forth thought process kept her stuck for years. When she thought she wanted to focus on business and forgo a family, the thought of not having kids pained her. And then when she thought to focus on a family while giving up her…
