In early 2020 I was introduced to Katie Ferro by a business coach of mine during a group coaching call talking about profitability in your business and bookkeeping. Being the spreadsheet lover that I am, I immediately fell in love with everything Katie had created and just who she was as a fellow female entrepreneur who also just so happened to be a full time work from home mom also. After purchasing her Small Business Starter Kit program (use code BRIDGE for 15% off) and implementing it into my monthly bookkeeping dates with myself, I began to realize how much a freakin' genius Katie was. So I did what any normal person would do and I began stalking her Instagram and DMing her. :)
Long story short, my plan worked and a friendship was formed! Throughout the remainder of 2020 we continued to talk, and voice text back and forth, I invited her into my facebook group to do a training on small biz profitability, and then when she told me she was starting a podcast I was eager to know if I could be on the show so we could just talk to one another about everything under the sun.
So we did! We set a date, a time, and totally blew over our allotted time (originally 1 hour, it went 2 1/2 hours), and we had a freaking blast. Thankfully Katie was able to talk our convo and condense it down to less than hour podcast, but man... that must have been a tough job because it was a very content rich episode if I do say so myself.
I've gone ahead and saved you a little bit of time and reading taking out some of the key elements of the episode and listing them for you here, but I STRONGLY recommend you go follow Katie's podcast, Profits & Prosecco right now... then DM stalk me and let me know what you think!
