After 18 years of being an entrepreneur in Lubbock, Texas, I've learned a thing or two about navigating the rough waters of commerce in a small, but growing town.
Entrepreneurs are regular everyday people, like you and me, who have found a passion for small business. Many of us fell into it by accident, or necessity, or thought it would be a good side gig, but now find ourselves with a budding business. As a small business owner, you might have hit a road block, don’t know how to take the next “right” step to get you to the next level, or maybe you started off with a bang and now you feel you are fizzling out. I’ve been there, I know what you are going through! Join me as I give you LEGIT & personally tested tips and tricks to help make your entrepreneurial life a success!
You’ll get REAL first-hand account of running a small business, and a different perspective on business that will give you the inspiration you need to take that next step.
Success!! Now What???
Success!!! I made it! I've got a thriving business with loads of customers clamoring for my attentions! Hooray!!!!!
I'm feeling blessed, proud, excited, kinda stressed out... pretty overwhelmed... alone... helpless... Is it all worth it? Maybe it's easier to just quit while I'm ahead...
Wait, what? This doesn't compute! Don't give up just yet! Are your goals perhaps bigger than they need to be at this stage of the game? Have you skipped over the part where you are managing a reliable, successful, helpful and useful business that is feeding your God given talents? A business that is working for YOU, not the other way around?
There are always modifications to consider before you give in to the inevitable entrepreneurial mantra of... "if this doesn't work out, I'll just go get a 9-5 job..."
Let's chat about the stress of owning a SUCCESSFUL business that might have you rethinking this whole small business ownership thing!
Goal! We hear that word used alot in sports, but can it translate to small business wins?
Do you have any goals? Do you have too many goals? Do you think they are silly and useless, a waste of precious time?
Let's have a chat about goals and how they can set you up for a successful future while still being fluid instead of rigid.
We're here to learn, and we learn by living!
Organization is Key
What is the state of your desk? What is the state of your brain? Are they neat and orderly, or messy and scattered?
Let's chat about organization and how it can be a solid cornerstone of your small business foundation.
Pivot, Pivot, Pivot!
Have you ever heard that to stay relevant in business you need to be willing to “pivot”? Isn’t that a risky business plan? How do you pivot? Isn’t consistency the most important thing in small business?
Let’s dive a little deeper on this topic and chat about how pivoting can save your business right now and in the future! Be BOLD! PIVOT!
Fake It, Till You Make It?
Are you faking it till you make it? Or have you made it, but you're still faking it?
It might be time to take a hard look at your business practices and make sure that you are doing the necessary things behind the scenes to make what you are projecting to your potential and current clients a real deal business. No fakin' it!
Let's get REAL! Know what you are good at, and get help with the things you're not great at so you can be REAL, not FAKE!
Knowing Your Worth
Do you know what you & your time are worth? Are you undervaluing your abilities and knowledge? It's a hard thing to gauge and there's definitely no formula... Let's chat about how we can set our prices to reflect our worth without gouging our customers and in the end, be rewarded for our hard work!
Did we just become friends?!
Not only is it insightful, but it gives such a warm and welcoming approach to podcasts. I felt like I was just sitting in on good conversation that left me feeling uplifted. I think we just became besties for the resties.
I really enjoy Kelle's podcast! It's great to hear from such a diverse group of artists and entrepreneurs about their struggles and successes. I've really learned a lot listening to this. Keep up the good work!
So informational and fun to listen too! I love Kelle B!!!
