57: When and where to invest in your business with heather o’brien
Today, I have the opportunity to chat with Heather O’Brien about when and where to invest in your business.
When was the last time you made an investment in your business? If it’s been a while, you’re not alone. Many entrepreneurs wait until they’ve reached total burnout to get help or guidance. They think they need to make a certain amount of money in their business before they can afford to invest in education, support, or maybe even equipment to make life easier and get their time back.
In this episode, Heather and I will discuss investing in your business. We’re going to break down the best investments for your business, how often you should invest and how it affects the big picture of your life in business.
Heather is a fellow wedding stationery educator and speaker for creative entrepreneurs. After connecting with other creatives in her industry and realizing the importance and impact of community and education in her own story, she launched The Cultivated Creative in 2019, creating a space for stationery designers.
Through Cultivated Creative, Heather helps equip and empower other stationers through educational resources and learning opportunities.
