809: Jesse Johnson – 7-Figure Business: Real or Hype?



Today’s episode discusses the journey to a seven-figure business. Is the idea of a seven-figure business – especially for the self-employed – for real, or just hype? Is building a seven-figure business actually a possibility for you, or is it merely a “dangling carrot” that makes you feel “less than” if you don’t achieve that particular fiscal goal? Maybe this conversation with Jesse Johnson will teach you how to achieve a seven-figure business…or maybe it will teach you that this is not even something you want! Or maybe you know you do want to achieve this goal, and today’s discussion will help you identify what’s standing in your way of achieving that goal. In any case, this is a topic that pushes buttons for me personally – primarily because of how this “seven-figure business” topic makes self-employed folks feel — which is why I am so excited to unpack this topic with Jesse.


Jesse Johnson is a master sales and success coach, specializing in helping spiritual entrepreneurs build 7-figure businesses. After 12 years of teaching math in NYC public schools, frustrated by bureaucracy, she founded her own personal development company and built it to 7 figures in just 2 years. Jesse now teaches sales as a spiritual practice - no compromise, no self-sacrifice, no mediocrity.
