Hustle + Gather Conversations with Sisters Wide


Courtney Hopper: Welcome to Hustle and Gather. A podcast about inspiring the everyday entrepreneur to take the leap. I’m Courtney.

Dana Kadwell: And I’m Dana.

Courtney Hopper: And we’re two sisters who love business. On this show, we talk about the ups and downs of the hustle and the reward at the end of the journey.

Dana Kadwell: We know all of the challenges that come with starting a business. Between operating our wedding venue, doing speaking and consulting, and starting our luxury wedding planning company, we wake up and hustle every day. And today we’re talking, just the two of us, about last week’s episode with Rachel Sheerin; a motivational speaker, burnout expert, executive trainer, Ted Talk giver, podcaster, and future author. If you haven’t heard last week’s episode, you’ll give it a listen and come back to hear our thoughts.

Courtney Hopper: Dana, what was your, what was your first thought/takeaway after speaking to Rachel, besides like, she’s amazing, so much energy. I want to be Rachel when I grew up, even though I believe she’s younger than me.

Dana Kadwell: I feel like for me, it was– I think, always whenever I hear Rachel or speak with her, it’s confidence boosting. She is someone who can really inspire you to believe in yourself, even if there’s actually no reason to believe in yourself in your mind. But what really resonated with me a lot, and I mentioned, I think I said it in the podcast was, culling your friend group. And I feel like that’s something that I’ve done for years and I don’t, and I’ve always been not ashamed of it, but just more like, “Am I doing the right thing by not letting people in?”
