Today’s guest is one who I had an unusual way of meeting—from a cold email to a warm and pleasant relationship. Dayana is an expert in her respective field, and she’s found herself to be in a similar situation as the clients that she’s helping. Yeah, it does happen. We, by nature, are in the weeds of our own businesses. It is for this reason that I always say, coaches do need coaches. Join me as Dayana and I discuss ways on how to collate all wonderful ideas and come up with an overall mission.
