Mistakes Make Magic Feature | Becoming Financially Independent as a Creative

One of my greatest joys is watching others transform their stories to build businesses and lives they love. Empowering others to understand their numbers and become financially independent is my biggest goal. Which is why I’m so excited to share today’s podcast feature with Catherine Guidry of  Mistakes Make Magic, where we dive into the details of becoming financially independent as a creative.

For those of you new around here—hi, I’m Shanna! I help women (and men) make money doing what they love! I bridge the gap between the finance world and the creative world as well as make finance approachable (maybe even fun!). I know, you probably just rolled your eyes with finance and fun in the same sentence, but keep reading and I might just convince you!

Let’s simplify your finances and help you understand your numbers.

Mistakes Make Magic

With Shanna Skidmore

In this episode, Catherine and I dive into the importance of understanding the business-side of your business. Most times, we start a business because we have a passion. But understanding our numbers and how to build a profitable and sustainable business is crucial.

I think it’s so easy to get intimidated by money talk. But that’s where I love making finance approachable and helping people understand their money—both professionally and personally.

So today, we dive into some awesome content and take incredibly complex and intimidating ideas and explain them in a way that sounds simple. These financial tips are applicable whether you’re an aspiring entrepreneur, have an established business, or even if you’re not a creative.

Entrepreneurs from around the world have joined the movement to be their own boss. Here's what a few of them have to say :

"I have my cash flow plan beside me and I have been up sixty freaking percent this whole year simply by planning ahead for slow months and all the sudden the money is there. What! You are brilliant and I am so grateful for you and the way you love us and take care of our hearts and just are YOU! I sometimes feel like that 2nd grade kid who’s like, “Teacher! Look - I did my homework!”
