On this episode of the podcast I chat with guest and former Unf*ck Your Biz student Stephanie Lay.

 

Stephanie Lay is an event manager pivoted to virtual assistant to solo female entrepreneurs. Stephanie took a free two week challenge with Braden and discovered how the tax and legal aspect could actually be fun and not as scary and intimidating as it sounded and how much she still had to learn.

Unf*ck Your Biz is open to all levels of business owners, from brand new to years in, helping one another learn from what they have done and what they need to do.
