In this episode, I interview Monique Allen, Business Coach & Founder of The Garden Continuum Inc. based in Medfield, Massachusetts, United States of America. Monique has set up her own life-scaping company to help entrepreneurs, people in private, commercial, and government to ensure the longevity, vitality, and beauty of their home, business, and protected project areas.

From blogging a business back in the 90s, Monique decided to start her own business with a teachable mindset and self-awareness. Garden Continuum Inc was established in 1991 and has been running for over 32 years.

Monique said that to grow a business, you have to develop self-awareness and open your perspective to different realities. So she says, “the capacity of your business can only stretch to the capacity of you. And if you decide that you are not going to grow your own mental capacity, your own emotional capacity, or intellectual capacity, then the business gets stuck. So the best possible thing you can do is invest in your own self-awareness in your own growth.”
