I’m delighted to have Casey Jourdan joining me as our guest for this week. Casey is a business strategist extraordinaire. She works with entrepreneurs and solopreneurs as they navigate getting their businesses up and running, and helps them navigate the overwhelm that often comes with the first few years of business. It’s a real treat to have a conversation with Casey on change, and the pursuit of evolution. The host of “Steady She Grows” podcast, Casey’s done some really interesting work around the pursuit of evolution and how change is a part of everything that we do.
Change is the Only True Constant
What stands out to me about Casey is her dedication to adaptive evolution. After surviving a road-side bombing in Iraq, and years later tackling multiple rounds of infertility treatments with no good outcomes, Casey has come to deeply believe that change is inevitable but evolution is optional. We get to create our best lives and a business that suits our life.
Casey combines her Masters in mental health, her time as a therapist, and her own life and business experiences to create a signature approach. She teaches others to see change as an opportunity to be embraced, and that through leaning into our evolutions we can take our business to its next best level.
In this episode, Casey Jourdan and I talk about:
-Her early sparks of joy: teaching others
-Creating various iterations of her business as a multipassionate
-Evolution as a practice
-The difference between evolution and growth
-How her religious beliefs changed and shifted after coming home from the Iraq War
-Progress and baby steps living with PTSD
-Navigating the first few years of business and why so many businesses fail
-How to jump start joy in your life: be nice and kind to others, find out what fires you up and go try it, set and observe boundaries.
