I’m stubborn (my husband reminds me of this often). I’m also pretty independent. “Where there’s a will, there’s a way” and in my book that usually means I’m going to Google-teach myself whatever I need to know to DIY the task at hand.
As a new business owner, this was a great way to learn and grow when I first started.

That way I could form my own thoughts and opinions about what was going to work for me and my business and what wasn’t.
But now that I’m more established and moving towards growth and scaling, I’ve learned that those outside sources can be extremely valuable because they can see what I can’t.

But the truth is, we’re going to be a lot more successful if we reach out for help.
I tell clients all the time, “Yes, you could absolutely learn Dubsado on your own and DIY your setup and workflows. But how long is it going to take? How stressful is it going to feel? What are you going miss in your setup because you couldn’t read the label from inside your bottle?”
