The One Tip that Changed My Business

People often ask me if there was ONE piece of advice that changed my business and helped me grow.  And YES – there was.  A friend in the fashion business turned me onto a special die cutter who could cut my handbags and that allowed me to expand from my dining room table to major manufacturing.  Once I had that information, I reached out to larger stores and got my first order from Anthropologie!

Check out the 67 tips from my Entreprenette Experts and see which one can change your business.  Leave a comment and let me know how it goes!

    Another tip is managing your cash flow. I’ve had money come in and out of my account, which I thought I would remember it all but it definitely helps using a tool to manage the cash flow. I’ve been using Billing Boss (, which is a free web-based and mobile-based invoicing tool. I can easily track any payments coming in, and who owes me for what. Plus my accountant automatically access to all my invoices and account payable records. I don’t need to ever send her updates on a regular basis.
