Emma Burdett, Founder of WILD (Women in Leadership Deliver) network, explains to Maria Botros on the Tell Me Why podcast why getting a good coach and mentor is crucial.

  • Emma: We often glamorize entrepreneurship, but the struggle is real
  • As an entrepreneur, I’m very vocal about my struggles because there are days where I’m under the covers and in tears, says Emma
