Where the money resides?
I heard I can put my child on payroll and get a tax write off, how do I pay myself.  Being steps ahead in business is necessary, but if you aren’t even making consistent money now we can’t have those conversations.  Let’s talk about how to be where the money resides.  Then we can plan all the other things.  One step at a time.

Aesthetics and Optics Illusions in business
It's all about them likes and how your social media looks, but are you doing the work as the boss.  Today's episode we talk about looks versus the work.  Taken care of yourself is important, learning is important - but the real question is can you handle all that entrepreneurship requires of you.  Listen to how I reassessed my own shortcomings to pivot in business when I was too worried about "looks" and not the work. Here's a YouTube video that I lobe that helps me reset my own imposter syndrome. https://youtu.be/fxvS_dQkgQI

Your Next Level
Starting a business is hard, but doing the thinks you need to can be cumbersome. There are more moving pieces then you know. I always suggest to entrepreneurs take a business model you like and break that down. Now relate it to your business, now what work do you need to do. No stone can go unturned just because you don't like it. Entrepreneurship is not just the parts you are good at. Today we want to make sure you are presenting to get consistent coins or at least find out why you aren't? 🤔

Your Customer Service is Trash
I see it time and time again.  Business that have been doing it so long, that you are stuck.  And as a bookkeeper I will continue to say your numbers don't lie.  Do you have repeat customers?  Do customers refer you?  These are 2 things that can help you identify if you are given good customer service, because people who like enjoy your products/service will continue to come back for their customer experience, not customer service.  Be a Chick-fil-A in a world of McDonald's.

Working ON your business vs IN your business
By definition A business owner is someone who derives profit or income from a company's operations, whether or not he participates in its management. A CEO is an paid executive manager who guides the day-to-day activities in the company.  So are you getting burnt out working IN your business and not ON your business.  Because the dream was you were to call the shoots and be the big CEO.  But the game is you need to be the Owner.  Listen to how I identified my pivot moment after burnout of course, cause no one told me.  And that is why I'm telling you. Hire Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cash Flow in Entrepreneurship
Cash flow is a taboo subject in business.
