Financial Real Talk: When You’re a Lactation Consultant and Business Owner (podcast)

Ep 14 - Real Talk Header.png

Got a handle on your business finances? Not all of us are prepared for what it means to be a small business owner – especially when it comes to finances. We’re here to help.

 We got into this business because we love caring for breastfeeding mothers and their babies. That skill doesn’t always coincide with business and financial savvy. If you can relate, we’ve got you covered.

In this episode, we share our advice, tips, and experiences for creating a successful business and staying on top of your finances. From business expenses to taxes, we are diving in deep for this Financial Real Talk.

 In our latest episode, we share:

  • Cost of Doing Business vs. Business Expenses

  • Pay Yourself, Pay Your Taxes

  • How do you get through the Ups and Downs?

This episode is sponsored by MilkNotes. MilkNotes is an all-in-one lactation charting tool that helps you better manage your LC practice.
