While I’ve had a lot of guests on the show to talk about entrepreneurship, Beth is in the trenches right now, and towards the starting point of her entrepreneurial journey. In this raw interview, Beth opens up about a Kickstarter campaign she just launched, that didn’t work out as she hoped, and what she learned from that. She talks about the “imposter syndrome” and what it’s like to not feel like a “real entrepreneur.” She talks about working a full-time job, starting her own company, and raising her son, and not dropping the ball on any of those three. We talk about Bunker Labs, dreaming big and going for it, doing what you want to do, getting enough sleep, and fusing the gaps in your day.
