What I need help with

My background as an entrepreneur

My current challenges

My current challenges include organizing my inventory, managing my books correctly and efficiently and streamlining my tasks. I currently do everything myself while holding down a full time job. Marketing and e-commerce have been my main learning challenges by trial and error with accounting a close second.

Actions I’ve taken so far

I'm currently using quickbooks online and a spreadsheet program developed by a corporate accountant, Janet Leblanc. I currently have a shopify account using a template but have no idea how to personalize it beyond the basic pictures and descriptions.

My future goals

Future goals include better establishing my business and growing it to a level that will support me, eventually replacing my current job. I hope to expand my product offerings and diversify to become less prone to 'extinction'.

My motivations to work with a mentor

To help me learn and get more grounded in my business. To learn new skills and methods to become more sustainable and independent in my daily tasks and eventually grow the business to at least a medium size. The foundation is most important.
