Boundaries, balance and all things money; these are often words we shy away from as entrepreneurs. Yet they might be some of the most important things to strive for. Val Marlene was our first business coach and the biggest investment we made in our business at that point. We thought we needed her to scale, what we didn’t know is that we needed her for so much more.
Val is a creative business coach, strategist and therapist all wrapped in one. She is a Profit First genius and her financial spreadsheets are some of my (Abbey talking here) favorite things to play in. She is the reason we were able to quit our 9-5’s with confidence. We knew that we needed her on the podcast to share all of her genius with you.
