Here is to getting Savvy BIZ Bites from OTHER small business owners, who know exactly how it is to hustle every day, deal with the daily challenges of a small business and what comes along with it.

The best part is to LEARN from these owners and enjoy their TAKEAWAYS . This Biz Bite post is with Morgan, a small business owner of @thebarnatpostoak and lucky me, sweet friend of mine:

I met sweet and SAVVY Morgan through Instagram, started carrying her amazing beautifully curated and locally made candles at my spa and now we are collaborating for my own Signature line. It has been a true joy watching her business sky rocket and could not wait to share her SAVVY biz tips with you! Tips from Morgan:

1) Business advice for those just starting out in business? Take all the professional advice you can get from business owners you admire! Read the books. Stay connected to both your customer and small business community. Be open to change…and most importantly…don’t lose yourself in the process. Use this business as a way to celebrate who you are and be proud of that! ✨⠀⠀⠀

2) Favorite Tech tool you cannot live without?
I’ll be the first to admit I’m behind the times when it comes to technology! I’m a paper planner lover forever and always. Technology tends to overwhelm me, so I stick to what I know and love best!

3) A PODCAST or AUDIBLE that has made an impact in your business life?
Podcast: Building a Storybrand by Donald Miller. I have listened to many podcasts pertaining to business…and this one gets me every time. I truly feel like this is the base of a flourishing business. **Bonus: buy the book, highlight and you have a tangible resource to revisit!!

4)Other local small business owner you Morgan admire in our community? @savvyprofessional – ALWAYS refreshing us with real, authentic, and most importantly: HELPFUL content as a lady business owner! Everything she touches turns to gold! Pay attention! (aw thank you Morgan🥰)
