EP 044 | Avenues Of Learning with LeAnne Bunnell


About this Episode

We all learn differently. Most of us need multiple points of reference to really learn something and absorb it on a core level.  Interior designer LeAnne Bunnell works hard at growing her business and improving her skills and she shares that knowledge with us here.
In this episode we learn:
– key to success is having your financial processes in order
– hiring a bookkeeper is a small investment that pays big dividends
– surround yourself with mature business owners who aren’t converplaining
– be an active participant in the experience of learning

Take Aways


LeAnne’s advice:

  1. Planning your day and your week ahead of time is a good way to manage resources.
  2. Schedule time to work ON the business.  In LeAnne’s office they do a Friday happy hour and they talk about what they’ve learned and what they want to work on going forward.
