But Who’s Counting? Season 2 Episode 5: Developing Relationships, Success and Happiness as a Business Owner with Erin Joy

Understanding the connections between your overall wellbeing and your level of success as an entrepreneur can unleash better business decisions. It’s generally assumed that success in business drives happiness, but what if the formula works better the other way around? 

But Who’s Counting? host David E. Hartley met with Erin Joy for a wide-ranging conversation about what it means to find success as an entrepreneur, and more importantly how it feels. The founder and executive consultant behind Erin Joy Executive Consulting & Coaching explained the importance of developing relationships within your business community in ways that build a network that lasts a lifetime. The conversation also covered: 

  • Unique strengths women business owners, and people of all genders and identities, can capitalize on as a tool to further your goals 
  • The three characteristics small business owners should embrace to create an entrepreneurial legacy  
  • How developing a deeper than surface level relationship with business advisors can unlock better insights 
  • As technology advances, pay attention to the changes happening right now, not the ones approaching on the horizon, and allow yourself to evolve to adapt 

“My stance is that we want to have a satisfying, enjoyable and happy journey and actually use that to fuel the success in our lives and in our businesses, not the other way around.”
