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)
