My guest Beate Chelette shares with us what mindset shifts and intentional thinking got her through adversity and all the way to a point where she sold her business to Bill Gates for millions. Now she's an authority in her field of strategic planning.
Beate is the Growth Architect and Founder of The Women's Code. She provides visionaries and leaders with proven strategies, blueprints and growth maps that provide clear steps to improve business systems, strengthen leadership skills and teams.
She definitely knows what she's talking about as Beate bootstrapped her passion for photography into a global business that she then sold to Bill Gates in a multimillion-dollar deal.
But before all of that she had to get through a decade of bad luck and adversity and in this conversation we talk about
- the reasons why she left Germany without a plan at a very young age
- how she ended up in this decade long adversity as a single mom without a job
- how she had to become very disciplined with her thinking to not allow mental clutter derail her and keep her stuck
- the mindset that eventually got her out of bad luck and all the way to a point where she sold her business to Bill Gates for millions
- what her super skill is and what role strategy plays in it
- she also shares what strategy really is
- and how she got into "hot water" for speaking up and out about women's equality and what she does now instead
I hope you enjoy this very episode and if you find value in what Beate and I are talking about please share it with your friends and business connections, because if you find value in it, they will too. Sharing is Caring.
