Each month members of our leadership team share the best resources or tips they have discovered and use in their small business.
- Be Open to Change
My recommendation for May is to be ok with saying yes and no a lot! Just because you said no last time doesn’t mean you always have to and vice versa! Do what is best for you and your business at the time!! And also don’t be afraid to try new things! You never know what this new “yes” might turn into!

- Small Business Insurance
I learned recently that great liability insurance can cover you not only if you are being sued for bodily harm, but also if you’re being sued by another business. I would highly suggest all of our members invest not only in insurance, but insurance that can cover any facet of their business.

- The Unmistakable Creative
My recommendation is The Unmistakable Creative podcast. It’s like a rogue business podcast. The interviews/conversations are really intelligent and I always come away with something useful.

My recommendation is the show Abstract, on Netflix. This series is a documentary where we step into the lives of artists in different fields to see how they think through problems, find inspiration, and bring their ideas to life through art. It helped me when I was in a rut this winter to hear the stories from artists that are at the top of their field and be inspired by them.

A timesaver for me on Pinterest has been Tailwind. Tailwind allows you to schedule out pins, suggests pins to post, suggests and schedules the pins when people in your target industry are on Pinterest and allows you to pin directly from your Instagram (although vertical pins do best). Another part of Tailwind is the Tailwind Tribe, which allows you to join a group of people with the same topic or subject (such as Wedding Inspiration or Business Tips) and post each other’s content.
