In this episode, Jodi and Stacy discuss Jodi’s battle with anxiety and how she’s become a happy, successful business owner.

“I don’t let things get me down.” At minute 7:00, Jodi talks about why an equal dose of optimism and realism are so important in being a business owner.
Don’t hire people who can’t do the job. At minute 9:00, Jodi talks about what she has learned about the hiring process and how she overcame always seeing the best in people. That’s a dangerous practice when it blinds you from seeing the negatives in potential employees.
