Jan from Scoutie Girl & Daisy Janie introduced me to Daily Worth, "a free daily personal finance email for women. [They] deliver practical money tips, empowering ideas and the occasional kick in the pants."
That's their promise, and they sure do deliver. I immediately signed up for it and have looked forward to receiving it everyday since, and I know at least one other BIZtips reader (Laura!) looks forward to it too!
Here are some examples from Daily Worth emails to give you a sense of
what they're like:
How much money do you think one should have saved up before they decide to quit their day job and go into business for themselves? What other financial back-ups would be wise to have in place when you're self-employed?
What is one financial mistake you see a lot of women make, and how can it be avoided?
A mentor of mine taught me a hard business rule: "To save your company, try to cut expenses once, and cut deep." If you're pipeline is empty, consider how much you need to cut in overhead to save your business. It will be less painful in the long run if you can make drastic cuts as few times as possible.
And in down times, to keep sales up, marketing and visibility are more important than ever. The Web is exploding with ways to promote yourself to thousands of readers without spending a dime. Start a blog and then promote it on ladieswholaunch.com, myventurepad.com, or blogher.com. Instant traffic. Instant visibility.
