Episode #231: Leadership Mindset with Rasholeen Nakra

Apr 27, 2023

Working with a business coach can help established business owners up-level their sales strategies, fine tune their messaging, and better organize their offers, so that they can grow with more ease — but it can also help first-time business owners make the shift from corporate life to successful entrepreneurship.

My guest for this episode is Rasholeen Nakra, the Director of North York’s Angelic Treasures Christian Daycare, which provides children with a “learn through play” environment and the space and guidance to explore, create, learn, and grow.

Prior to shifting into the childcare field, Rasholeen worked as a consultant in the oil and gas industry. After realizing that there was a lack of high-quality childcare available in her area, she decided to fill that gap herself. She discovered the Angelic Treasures franchise, and her daycare now provides childcare and French learning services to 89 children of all faiths.

While she’s turned a struggling business into a success, the road wasn’t always smooth. As a first-time business owner, Rasholeen needed to learn entrepreneurship from A-Z —operations, team management, and more. In this episode, she shares the incredible insights that have helped her expand her business, why she has shifted her business goals, and how she developed her leadership role despite being a reluctant leader. 


In‌ ‌this‌ ‌episode,‌ ‌you’ll discover:‌ ‌

  • How Rasholeen discovered her personal leadership style and cultivated a learning culture in her business
  • How she ensures that her team members have clarity when it comes to her vision 
  • How she managed to grow her daycare during the pandemic period, when parents were increasingly working from home
