As a creative entrepreneur there are so many different opinions of what to invest your money on it can be EXTREMELY overwhelming. I am very strict about what I choose to invest in for my business, and as such I have only invested in 2 things: The Legal Paige Online Mastermind and an online photography course (Shooting and Editing by Amy Demos). In this blog I will explain the return on investment in those things as well as my next steps!
In an attempt to not repeat myself, I am going to link the podcast I was in all about this 3 month Mastermind and what it did for my business: https://thelegalpaige.com/ep-15-mastermind-101-how-a-mastermind-can-change-your-life/. In summary, the mastermind will start in December to go over mindset and then go through the same 3-month intensive course through which I went. It was a game changer in my business and I know it can be for yours as well if you put in the work. I started off with my prices very low, I have QUADRUPLED my prices, and I’m going to increase them again at the new year (so if you want a website you may want to jump on that before I increase my prices on January 1st). This course was a compilation of legal advice, social media tips, mindset shifts, and more. I HIGHLY suggest it if you are looking to build your business.
p.s. Looking for a contract for your biz, she is your girl!
If you’ve seen my photography growth over the past year, you probably are aware that I took some type of course or had mentorship. The Shooting and Editing course by Amy and Jordan Demos allowed me to not only feel confident in my photography, but also learn how to shoot on manual, achieve the bright and airy look I love so much, and make back the price of the course ten fold. Check out some of my work here!
I think a VA can be an amazing encourager and helper to your business. They can help you with design work (I’m looking at you Pinterest graphics I don’t want to create!) , schedule your blogs and newsletters, help onboard new clients, make Instagram stories for your course promotion, or edit your website pages. Here are some of my favorite to follow on Instagram!
I don’t know about you, but I did NOT sign up to be an entrepreneur to do bookeeping and tax returns. Talk about OVERWHELM! Here are some of my favorite accountants to follow!
Sometimes you just need someone to cheer you on in business or help you focus on key tasks that will move your business forward. That’s what these gals are for!
Maybe you just can’t afford to outsource copywriting right now and are looking at a course to grow your copywriting skills?
These are 2 courses I 100% back! Are you wondering if now is the time to hire a copywriter? Check out this blog post!
Kelsey has an AMAZING course called Copy Class! It is perfect if you are not a writer, but need to write words that sell on your website, email campaigns, etc. CHECK OUT her freebie how to grow an email list. I personally went through this class and HIGHLY suggest it. (I am an affiliate and get a kickback at no extra $$$ to you, but I suggested it even before being an affiliate!)
If Ashlyn Carter tells me to do something, I do it. I absolutely love her outlook on growing and scaling and working from a place of rest and not hustle. Her copywriting course is a bit of an investment ($797), but the value you get in learning how to write your website words and potentially help others could definitely be worth it. As I consider offering copywriting as a service, I factor in the knowledge I could gain from this course and learning how to develop my client’s brand voice and turn their copy from people browsing to people buying. I also feel this course could help me convey WHY I am different than other website designers and that may just be worth it for $797 in and of itself… I will let you know what I decide!
Do you have any to add to the list? What is your next investment? I would love to know!
