My guest is Helen Leith, Founder of Nokori, a Sydney-based company that provides a range of scar care products and support for people undergoing surgery.

Helen is a 4/1 Emotional Manifesting Generator.

We got frank about leaving a secure job to start a business, going back to corporate, self-doubt and the tipping point into success.

There is no right way to leave a career and start your own business and if you choose to dip back into your old career to support that transition - that can be a great tactic.

We also chatted about how aligning to her Human Design shows up as her core sales channel in her business.
