[14:08] When Taryn had a strategy session with Natalie about a year ago, she didn’t have a clear line drawn between personal and business accounts. She does now! Natalie shares her advice on why it’s important to keep these accounts separate.
[16:05] What other changes have happened in the last year? Taryn talks about moving to a different, more consistent child care program for her children so that she has more time to focus on her business.
[19:44] Taryn has a very healthy money mindset, but she has a fear of success, in terms of the amount of time she would have to dedicate to achieving success.
[21:01] What has Taryn’s experience been adding staff and outsourcing tasks?
[24:11] Natalie encourages Taryn to think about what her organizational chart would look like as she grows. It is important to think about the functions of the business, not the people on hand.
[31:34] Based on Taryn’s current situation, she has two options: a) maintain her current structure, limit her client base and raise prices, or b) grow the business by hiring more people to support more clients. Natalie and Taryn discuss her options based on her strengths and weaknesses.
