146 // The mindset needed to succeed in business with Kate Buchan

The Real Her Project Podcast

Today on the podcast I have Kate Williams/Buchan who is the Founder of Retreat Yourself Box, a  seasonal health retreat in a box inspiring you to prioritise self-care and become the best version of you. After struggling with school, Kate left to travel overseas as she explored the world and herself.  Through her travels, she saw an appreciation for life and the need to slow down and take care of herself.  Combining her love for travel, health and self care, she combined all 3 and started Retreat Yourself Box, from the ground up with no experience in business. For Kate, so much of her journey and success comes down to mindset.  So much of us think that we need to ‘know’ everything before starting a business, but a lot comes down to the right attitude and thinking.  Kate has some amazing tips on how to shift your mindset so you can make the most out of starting a business and learning along the way. To add to that, Kate shares some key skills you will need to understand when starting a business.  It isn’t always the fun things, but getting a clear understanding on money, cashflow and growth of the business will help you steer the ship in the right direction.  It can sometimes feel easy to get distracted by what others are doing, but having that structure will help you focus on the things that matter for the business. Kate and I also had a chat about making the most of opportunities and looking at failure in a different light.  Kate has had some really exciting opportunities in her past and even though things didn’t go to ‘plan’, she took them as a chance to learn and grow, rather than a way to give up. This episode is for anyone who wants to start a business and has no experience.  Laying that solid mindset foundation first and gaining the skills as you go.  Every mistake is an opportunity to grow, every option you try gets you closer to your goal and a positive mindset is half the battle when starting a business that you are passionate about. In today’s episode we discuss The importance of travel in personal growth Kate’s evolving journey to starting Retreat Yourself Box The power of mindset in business The skills you need to start a business And so much more!
