Season 2, Episode 8

The myth of overnight success

with Fiona Grayson

Fiona Grayson is the founder of She Can. She Did – host of the brilliant female networking events, the Midweek Mingle, and accompanying podcast telling the honest journeys of female business owners and most recently, has created the UK’s first benefits program for self-employed females.

Fi’s passion for unearthing and sharing the challenges that female business owners face has built an inspiring community where the hard work and sacrifice that goes into running your own business is recognized and appreciated.

But with business owners sharing their success online it’s harder than ever to not compare yourself or form an idea of success that doesn’t actually align with your values.

In this episode Fi shares with me her business journey, we break down the illusion of “overnight success” and what we can all learn from following our gut.

I started She Can. She Did to debunk that girl boss myth, because that overnight success isn’t a reality and anyone who says it is, is prying on vunerability in my opinion.

  1. The internet would have you believe that success is about quick wins and instant results when there is a lot of hard work and time that goes into every win.
  2. You don’t always have to show up. You can just observe, and take time to know if something aligns with your values before acting.
  3. With so much noise online around success, you can lose touch with your own instincts and markers of success.
