158. The Gift of Entrepreneurship | with Elisabeth Jones-Hennessy

Elisabeth Jones-Hennessy has gone through such a journey in launching her first business, GiftMeChic. She had to navigate what she wanted to build for her business and how to stay aligned with who she truly is; she wanted something relevant that others could benefit from and allowed her inner gifts to come out, and that’s how GiftMeChic was born. Then, starting a business right before a pandemic added its own challenges.

Whether you’re running a business or want to start one, you’re sure to learn something valuable from Elisabeth’s story. We dialogue on the challenges of 2020 and beyond, how she realigned during the pandemic, where she is today, and where she’s going next.


How to Step Into Your Own Business

  • Find clarity around what you’re passionate about, what’s going to make you happy, and what will be successful and make you money.
  • Start with the connections you already have and the brands and businesses you love and use those to get yourself off the ground in a small way.
  • Don’t be afraid to pivot. At the beginning of your business, you may see opportunities to change and grow your business that differ from the original plan. That’s okay, as long as it still aligns with your end vision.
