I remember when one of my female colleagues first told me about the struggles many self-employed women face. It was about 10 years ago.
"Yes, there's discrimination," she said. "But much of it is self-sabotage. We just weren't brought up like men. We're not supposed to be driven and assertive."
I was shocked.
Yet the more I talked with other women freelancers and entrepreneurs, the more I realized that this is a huge issue.
We've addressed this issue before here at the Academy. In fact, Dianna Huff's detailed post a few years ago is one of the most shared articles on our website.
But in this week's episode my pal Coach Jenn Lee shares a few more insights on the issue — along with a few great ideas for breaking out of this cycle.
