What’s a tip or strategy that you would like to share?

I believe that it’s essential for business owners to review and revise how they market, what media they use, and how they manage their money. It’s nice to be on autopilot, but you could be missing opportunities to grow your business, extend your reach, or save/make you money.

What that means for me is taking risks and marketing differently (like being a featured columnist in Marketing, Media & Money Magazine!) to reach different audiences. I stopped my podcast because it wasn’t unfolding as I’d envisioned and I wasn’t having fun. I need to plan out my strategy more and get back to it when I have the time to spend perfecting it.

Finally, something as simple as where you house your extra business money is worth considering. You could be missing out on a chance to earn a higher percentage on funds that you’re saving just by doing some research. I find online banks offer the best “bang for the buck”.
