Wealth Building Strategies: How to Budget, Invest, and Raise Your Prices with Brandon Kidd

Quick question: Do you look at your business as a piggy bank or an ATM?

Oof. When my kind/smart/generous friend, Brandon Kidd, asked me this question ya girl had to take a pause…

During that pause, a cinematic flashback of fancy dinners, upgraded plane tickets, and unnecessary business purchases flew through my mind.

It turns out that making business purchases can be a slippery slope to funding your lifestyle, and we NEED to have more conversations around that.

This is exactly why I asked Brandon, wedding photographer and business strategist, to be a guest on the podcast and share some of the magic-ness inside of his brain with you.

In this episode, you’ll learn strategies for financial stability, how to make informed financial decisions, ways to invest in growth, and the significance of building wealth that transcends your life and business.
