Money mindset and strategy hacks for skincare brand owners – with Clare Wood, Money Mentor

by | Oct 16, 2023 | Business, Podcast | 0 comments

In this episode I chat with Clare Wood, Money Mentor.  Clare was my business coach for a few months last year when I received a business grant, and really helped me get on top of my business finances, which was something I didn’t really focus on before that.

We dive into money mindset and strategy hacks for skincare brand owners, including:

  • The biggest tip for startups when it comes to budgeting
  • Whether you need to use an accountant or not
  • The one thing that can do to fast-track your progress
  • The low-down on accounting systems
  • Money blocks skincare brand owners will come across and how to overcome them

Clare also shares how fear will inevitably show up in business – and her recent experience in an ice bath!

Plus get a sneak peek into my own skincare and beauty routine – you’ll be surprised!
