Speaking Your Brand CEO, Carol Cox and Lead Coach, Diane Diaz. An Enneagram type 5 and Type 6 working relationship.



Have you been running a business of your own and love your clients and the work you get to do with them, but aren't so in love with the backend tasks of creating funnels, new promotions, accounting, etc. etc. and wish you could just focus on helping people?

Inside this interview with Speaking Your Brand CEO, Carol Cox (Type 5), and Lead Speaking Coach, Diane Diaz (Type 6), you'll get an inside look into what that could look like for you, including: 

  • what it's like to join someone else's team as a former entrepreneur and what to consider before you make the change
  • what bringing in a lead coach to your team looks like and why you may want to consider that option
  • what parts of Carol and Diane's unique personalities have each contributed to a successful and fun working partnership

If you happen to identify with either the Type 5 or Type 6, I think you'll feel so seen inside this conversation :) 

And if you don't, you're going to get such an insightful look into those in your life with possible Type 5 or 6 energy.
