Brooke Lively: “Give yourself grace.
Starting a business is full of ups and downs, highs and lows, and every time you have a fail … fail fast and fail forward – and ask yourself: what can you learn?
It’s not pleasant and it sure doesn’t feel good at the time – learn the lesson.
Give yourself the grace to learn the lesson”
In This Episode:
Brooke Lively says that she came to realise that most business owners are a little intimidated by their numbers, they don’t know what they’re saying and they don’t know how to use them.
“People start a business from a point of passion” she says “and they don’t have the training and so they feel stressed and frustrated. That’s why my business is here – to help small companies become more profitable”
Brooke Lively is Founder of Cathedral Capital which serves as bookkeeper, accountant, fractional CFO to (mostly) law firms
No matter what your business, Brooke has help for you in this episode.
She goes into detail about pricing from a few different perspectives.
She talks about her “Rule of thirds” which is their unique way of working with clients. Take revenue after COGS and 1/3 to pay employees, 1/3 to paying overheads and 1/3 to profit.
Makes perfect sense!!
Brooke is super smart and funny and cares enormously about her clients and her team.
She has built this highly successful business completely from scratch – she has a team of more than 10 people – and it happened “almost by accident” and she shares her story in this episode.
