In this episode, you might hear me get a little fired up! Why? Because your creative business is not JUST a little hobby, it's not JUST a little business and it's not JUST a little Etsy store... it's NOT "just" anything.
Your business may not pay all the bills and you may not be the primary income provider. But let me ask you this...
Is your business paying for your daughter to go to dance lessons?
Is your business paying for your Disney Vacation?
