Episode 10: Setting Goals for Your Business

Our last episode of the season! Thank you so much for following along with us in this first season of Scrap Paper! We've learned a ton and have had so much fun along the way. Thanks, Scrappy Babes!

In this episode, we're talking all about goals. What goals are (hint: not to-do list items), why they're important, and how we can use the data we have and/or our intuition to set them. We use this episode to map out our goals for the 4th quarter of 2017 and 2018 as a whole. We hope this episode will inspire you to think of goals as big dreams that you're going to do the work to actually achieve!

Episode 8: Let's Talk About Money

Money is one of those uncomfortable topics that we rarely want to talk about. Despite that -- and maybe because of that -- getting real about money is one of the best things we can do to propel our business. In this episode, we get real about pricing (especially when you're first starting out in a product-based business), how to know when and what to invest in for your business, and how our personal money stories can shape the way we treat our businesses. This episode contains practical advice about making money in your business, and also served as a bit of a therapy session for Emily and Sarah as they discuss their own hang-ups about money.
