Hey, y’all! We’re now on the 12th episode of our Makers Mean Business podcast. We are helping Craftprenuers everywhere grow their businesses one podcast episode at a time.
In today’s episode, Parker is talking about scaling a business by using assistants. So many Craftprenuers believe that they have to be a solopreneur and do everything themselves.
Surprise! That’s not at all true. Scaling your business works the best when you hire assistants to help you get it all done.

Parker gives an incredible amount of highly valuable ‘behind the scenes’ information. We don’t want to give away too much here, so here’s a glimpse of what he shares:
Examine and Control Your Budget
Take a look at your overall budget for your business. What money is coming in and what money is going out? This is information you should be able to know off of the top of your head.
Scale Your Business by Investing in It
Invest in coaching to get even better at your craft and your business. Take time to invest in yourself and grow as a person as well. Doing all of this will help your business in more ways than you can imagine.
Hire Help When Needed
