Story of the Shift: Annie P Ruggles

Episode 33

For almost a decade, Annie P. Ruggles, The Idea Doula, has harnessed her Hulk-like disdain for hard-sales, tacky self-promotion, and overly competitive douche-braggery as inspiration to help people find better ways to grow their small businesses.  She’s guided hundreds of people toward making deeper connections, lasting impressions, and friendlier, more lucrative products. You can find her online at and join her free small business sisterhood at Hustle Sisters.

It’s hard to compete with that opening so I won’t. I will simply say that Annie is worth the listen for multiple reasons. Why trust is so important in our businesses and what that really means The BEST gratitude tip you have ever heard. Knowing what kind of values you want driving you and your business. And real, unadorned, naked talk with no “entrepreneurial gloss”.

This interview is time well spent.
