EP 16: What's stopping you from reaching your goals?

Sep 07, 2022
What's stopping you from reaching your goals?

One of the biggest struggles that small business owners have is finding the TIME to take steps towards growing their business to new levels.

Maybe you can relate and have thought to yourself "I don't have the time to post reels on social media this week", "I haven't had time to work on that project just yet, but hopefully I will next week", "How am I supposed to get anything else done with all of the inventory I have to make this week?"

The truth is, we all have the same 24 hours in a day... so what makes certain successful small business owners reach their goals faster than others? And why do most small business owners struggle to make any REAL progress, week after week after week?

In today's episode, I'll be sharing with you what separates the successful small business owner from the struggling small business owner and what allows them to create the time to show up for their business each and every day.


  • The difference (and hard truth) between strategically growing & running a business vs having a hobby 
  • Why procrastination is one of the biggest forms of self-sabotage that can prevent your progress - and what you can do about it
  • How to make fast progress by focusing ONLY on THIS TRICK each day (listen to learn what this trick is!)

When you finish listening, I'd love to hear your biggest takeaway from today’s episode. Take a screenshot of the episode you're listening to, share it to your Instagram stories and tag me @monicalittlecoaching - or send me a DM!​

EP 103: Growing a coaching business with James Wedmore

Jun 05, 2024

The latest reviews from our loyal listeners:


Clear & effective communication!

Great podcast from Monica Little! She talks about the power of integrity, changing your mind-set to get stuff done and being accountable (both personally & professionally). The podcast is geared towards small business owners, but really so much of what Monica explains can be applied to various parts of anyone's life. She articulates so accurately many of the thoughts I have about the challenges of being a small business owner. It's reassuring & comforting to hear Monica break it all down in a comprehensive way in order to overcome the struggles. My favorite take-aways were how she explained that believing in yourself = FREEDOM and "how you do one thing is how you do everything".

I’m Learning So Much!

I love listening to Monica’s podcast as a handmade small business owner! She offers so many tangible tips within her episodes that have helped me to believe in and grow my small business. Episode 2 was very helpful as she discusses the power of integrity and using a habit tracker. I loved this concept and will begin to use one. I can relate to so many of the stories she tells about running her own handmade business. Thank you Monica for all of these episodes! I cannot wait to listen to more.
