    014: How to actually set and accomplish your business goals as a creative entrepreneur

    This past week I checked a huge goal off my list, and as I'm celebrating that and reflecting on the rest of 2021, I figured it would be a perfect time to talk about goal setting, evaluations, and mid-year check ins on the podcast.

    013: Copywriting tips for Creative Entrepreneurs from a Website Designer

    As a website designer, I’ve seen my fair share of good, bad, and ugly when it comes to website design and copy. 
     
    Last week’s episode was all about the DIY website mistakes I see people making and how you can fix them, but today, I wanted to talk about something a lot of people neglect when it comes to a website, and also the reason why a lot of people think their website isn’t working: 
    Copywriting. 
    As a designer, you might think that I believe the design is what makes the sales, but in all honesty, copy dictates design.
    Today's episode is all about the intentional steps you can take today to better your website copy!

    011: Using Profit First to Build a Profitable Business

    "It costs money to make money"
    I'm sure we've all heard this one a couple of times, and I remember thinking early on in my business that I needed all the things to be successful, and while my business was a side hustle and I was able to invest more money back into the business, I quickly realized how important it is for us to be paying ourselves too. 
    In today's episode I share all about how profit first has helped me build a thriving business where I'm free to invest within reason to build a business for the long haul.
