And why you’re silly not too …
I’m what’s known, by Adam Grant terms anyway, as a giver. I always give before thinking about personal gain. Sounds completely awesome right? How amazing am I?? But this can turn in to a negative thing if you don’t manage it properly. Giving with your heart without thinking has it’s positives but when it comes to business, you also need to give with your head.
I recorded this podcast a while ago with my good friend, frequent guest and fellow entrepreneur, Monica Graves. Her company, , has been alive and kicking since 2000 so I wanted to pick her brain about what it takes to be creative AND run a successful business. Those of us who are creative understand that sometimes business skills and creative skills can be mutually exclusive. No – that’s not always the case but when you are a creative person it’s always wise to figure out how to spend your time wisely.
I sat down with Monica because this is a woman who knows her business about business. This is a woman who is tireless in building and creating opportunities for her business to succeed. And if that isn’t enough, she also gives back to the local community by supporting multiple organizations who benefit from her passion and zeal.
Interested in learning more about this awesome woman and ways you could be helping your business succeed? Take a listen!
