I’m excited to dig into the big sometimes-scary topic of investing in your business today.  For the past ten (nearly 11) years, I have been operating and making financial decisions about my businesses. I have spent about half that time working with small business owners full time, so I am very familiar with all the hesitations and concerns of making business investments. It might surprise you to know that I have found most of those concerns are the same regardless of how significant the investment is. It’s important to note that investing and spending money is so personal. How and where we each spend our money is our business. It’s absolutely none of my business what you choose to do with your money. I am regularly asked about investing, though. I want to give my response to those inquiries a bigger platform here on the blog.  For full episode notes and links mentioned in this episode visit merriweathercouncilblog.com/142.

Today's episode is a super special broadcast of our brand new free class. We believe in the power of this information and basically, we really wanted you to hear it.   This episode is about breaking down productivity hurdles, succeeding on your own terms and leaving guilty feelings behind as an entrepreneur. Tune in to learn the 3 mistakes you'll want to make sure you aren't making and avoid them!    I'm also revealing the 4 must-have assets you need in order to amplify your handmade business! Important note: these are must HAVEs, not must-dos. Things 'to DO' get a ton of coverage and things to HAVE and BE - more important stuff ultimately - DO NOT get nearly as much coverage. Those things deserve more coverage, so we are going to cover them here today. To build a business that succeeds on your own terms and reaches your version of success, you need to equip yourself as a business owner with certain things! I'm going to tell you what those things are! "Must-do" dictates action and frames that action as something you cannot be successful without doing. Must HAVES and MUST BE assets are things you cultivate within yourself and your immediate surrounding to create an environment for success - so that you can IDENTIFY your unique must-dos, and they will make sense.   It all starts with avoiding energy-draining mistakes and getting clear on YOUR big picture. Let's break it down on today's episode.   If you are ready to stop 'doing' tasks and start implementing strategies,  leave time guilt behind, and get support from peers and experts as you go, join us inside of The Council! The doors are open through April 3rd and we cannot wait to welcome you in. Go on a behind the scenes tour and learn more about what we do and how we do it visit jointhecouncilnow.com
Season 8 of The Merriweather Council Podcast will be here soon! But we have something special for you in the meantime.   This episode will self-destruct on Friday, April 2nd!   TIME SENSITIVE INVITE: Join us for this free webinar to learn the 4 Must-have assets to amplify your handmade business so that you can blast through productivity hurdles and build a thriving craft-based business on your terms without time guilt, overwhelm, or time management struggles.   We are presenting this free class four different times on Tuesday, March 30th!
