Show Notes

The holidays are right around the corner, y’all. I don’t want you to be scattered and stressed this season—I want you to be present. In this episode, I’ll give you tips on how to survive this crazy season in your business, your life, and your budget. 

Plus, Etsy expert Melissa Kaiserman is a friend of Business Boutique and pays us a visit on this week’s podcast. She’ll share some wonderful, practical tips on how to prepare for the holidays if you’re a product-based business.

And my dear friend Rachel Cruze is here to talk about one of the biggest things that steals our joy, not just during the holidays, but all year round: comparisons. She’ll walk us through how to quit those comparisons. She’ll also share with us how she and her husband work through their budget together, and some funny stories about how it goes when they don’t see eye to eye.
