Entrepreneurial Intervention: Asia Small of The Purpose of Prep
This episode marks the first of a new segment we’ll be featuring on Scale Your Joy, the Entrepreneurial Intervention! I had the opportunity to speak with Asia Small, a 23 year-old entrepreneur working as a COO for writing consultation business and running her own college prep business. We cover the basics of her business and mine as I share some of the most important things I’ve learned from scaling my own business, The Art of Applying.

I’m bringing you my best business insight for how to start scaling and stay true to what matters.
