You know it’s a dusty old saying but - it takes money to make money. Damnit, it’s true! Last month, we gathered a warehouse full of the bossiest babes to talk about it. Not about finding money, but about the real real. The secret money stuff that keeps us awake at night. The kind of stuff that you would never tell your mom.
As business owners we get advice all day about the best ways to market, sell, and create new products. And because it’s BUSINESS, and it’s our jobs to exude confidence, we rarely get the opportunity to let down our guard and be vulnerable about the really hard stuff.
Talking truth about money is uncomfortable and, in some cases, shameful. This event was an attempt to start breaking down those barriers and understand that your problems are not so unique.
Here is a small sample of some of the responses we received:
My car was repossessed while my family was visiting.
My credit is maxed and I can’t afford inventory.
I haven’t paid myself in 2 years.
I have no idea what I am doing (x3).
Seeeeeeee, the real real. These are real obstacles and sacrifices that we business owners make. And for what? OUR DREAMS, THAT’S WHAT!
