EPISODE 169 | 14:39 minutes

This episode of The Transit Lounge Podcast is part of a series sharing 9 Side Business Tips, celebrating 9 years in business designed to help you grow your service-based Side Business.

In this episode, we share Tip 3 – Getting The Support You Need


When you’re growing a Side Business, even if you have a solo business – you actually can’t do it all alone. You can try, but it’s likely to take you a lot longer than it could if you get the support you need.

This episode emphasises the importance of finding support, particularly “business besties,” who understand the challenges of being in business – which sometimes our friends and family just don’t understand at all!


Key Tips Mentioned in the Episode:
  • Finding the right support is crucial for business success.
  • Building a community of women entrepreneurs who understand your journey can provide valuable support and perspective.
  • Engaging authentically in online groups, attending in-person events, and joining coaching programs are effective ways to find business besties.
  • Consistency and genuine connection are key to forming meaningful relationships with potential business besties.

Important Quote from the Episode:

“When I finally started to look for and find coaching groups and networks with other women, that were like me, that’s when things really started to take more shape in my business.”
– Shandra


No matter the stage of your business, cultivating a supportive network can significantly impact your growth and confidence.
