Key Lessons from 14 year of Thriving Small Business Ownership with Katie Craig

This week on the Creatives Do Money Podcast, Episode #26

Katie Craig is the owner of Momentum Coaching, and teaches easy to implement strategies for growth for holistic businesses.  She fuses together the expertise of both a marketing brain and a coaching brain. And she is dedicated to helping small business owners find their daily momentum in both business growth and personal balance through the Daily Momentum Business Collective.

Today’s episode is filled with so many nuggets of wisdom gleaned by my guest over the course of 14 years running two different, but connected businesses.  We get into the impact of finally facing her business finances, how she works on mindset in different parts of her work, her struggles with visibility and valuing her voice, and reaching for abundance, among other good things. 

” When you are connected to the value that you’re providing, you can then create the energetic connection between your money, the service you’re providing, the clients you’re bringing in and how you’re serving them.  It’s this beautiful circuit that happens when you feel good about what you’re providing and how you’re serving.  And you can see the connection that it makes for your clients, when you’re serving the need that they have.”
