Ep 34: Creative Entrepreneurship: "I can do ANY thing but I can't do EVERY thing.. at once" w/ Jevetta Boyce
Building a brand teaches you many lessons and requires a variety of skills. Multitasking and exercising your creative muscles appear at the top of that list of skills! Doing everything in your business is a blessing a curse.  The blessing - you know how everything functions and can train others. The curse - you're strapped from time and capacity. Creativity is a necessary ingredient for the formulation of any brand yet how does one protect their ideas? Pitching to clients is essential for B2B businesses but how do you avoid your ideas being stolen? We switched positions for a second episode, and in this episode Jevetta Boyce asked me (Jamelia Donaldson) a few burning questions she had on the start up journey of TreasureTress. We hope you enjoy!
