While Thrive is not a startup, (we’re celebrating 11 years in business!), Robin was interviewed by Lendio for this article 5 Female Entrepreneurs Share Startup Advice for Women.
What advice do you have for female entrepreneurs starting their businesses?
Robin’s advice to these women was to:
Invest in Yourself
“Investing in professional growth will always deliver ROI. It’s hard to pull the trigger on investing in that copywriting class or that accounting course, but it’ll pay dividends. When first starting a business, it may be hard to budget for investing in yourself. However, your brain is your most valuable asset. Growing your mind is never a waste of money. A free way I’ve invested in continued education is using my library membership. I use a library app to check out business audiobooks. I love to learn and while getting to a physical class is hard, streaming an audiobook on my phone is easy.”
The next piece of advice she’d offer is her favorite quote:
“Doing business without advertising is like winking at a girl in the dark. You know what you’re doing but no one else does. ” -Steuart Henderson Britt
