Welcome to the second season of Budgets and Cents, a podcast co-hosted by Cait Flanders (formerly Blonde on a Budget) and Carrie Smith (Careful Cents). If this is your first time listening, welcome! You can use our episode guide to catch up on what you’ve missed.
In the first half of this season, we’ve been talking about everything you need to do to get a freelance business up and running. From landing and managing clients, creating systems that help you get your work done and getting paid, there’s already a lot to do. But one thing you can’t forget about is taking care of yourself – and that’s what we’re talking about today.
We almost pushed this topic to the bottom of the list, as though it wasn’t a priority – and that’s exactly what happens to many of us in our real lives. In this episode, we talk about the importance of making yourself a priority and building self care into your routine. And it doesn’t matter if you run a business or not. Everyone could use a little more “you” time.
