TBU#3 Running your own business using The Four Tendencies

Rowena Mabbott Shelley Tonkin Smith

Show Notes

We’re continuing the conversation about Gretchen Rubin’s book, The Four Tendencies, which we started in our last two episodes. Today, we’re focusing on BUSINESS and how knowing your tendency can support you as a business owner.

We’re going to be covering the full gambit of what it takes to run a business — from crafting an offer, to marketing and messaging, then sales, delivery, and the day-to-day running in between. And we’re going to apply the Four Tendencies to each of those aspects of entrepreneurship.

Whatever your tendency — Upholder, Obliger, Rebel or Questioner — it’s our aim to help you harness your tendency’s strengths to be a successful and happy business owner.
