I first met Katie at Podfest (Podfest.us) where I spoke in Orlando. She was running around making sure everyone was doing ok, and handling fires as they came up. Sounds a lot like being a solopreneur!
Katie is the founder of Biz Women Rock, empowering women entrepreneurs all over the world.
On this show, we chat about creating a FB group that makes you money, how to host your own retreat, making that tough transition from employed to solopreneur, and how doing things that don't scale can really help your business.

[52:45] Part of monetizing a Facebook Group is determining who needs what. Which lead to her in person retreat and recently led to her Elite program.
