    Today going over my first year of running a creative business full-time! I’m going over what what I learned and what the first year looked like being a full-time entrepreneur. Retrospect is proving to be a very good teacher. While it’s been a great year, have a listen to my year in overview and what I learned from hiring experts when you need them and making self-care a priority.

     

    Topics we cover:

    — First year of going into business full-time and being your own CEO
    — Financial Advice for the first year
    — Hiring out Help
    — Importance of Planning
    — Differentiating yourself and your business
    — Hiring a Business Coach
    — Hiring experts to help you as a person, not just the business
    — My self-care and health journey with an auto-immune disease
    — Self-care routines and rituals like meditating and journaling and initiative eating
    — How creating a schedule as a freelancer helps ensure self-care and a successful business
    — Lowlights and Highlights of the year (and not the kind you get at the hair salon)
