Q&A: Answers to the 5 Most Burning Questions for Female Entrepreneurs

I would say that 90% of the questions I receive from entrepreneurs center around one thing: taxes.

Trust me, I’ve done hundreds in my lifetime. I should know.

Which is why I hopped on Instagram to ask you what your biggest tax question is, and girl, here are your answers:

Girl, your website is GLAM.

And the clients are rolling in. Your social media campaigns are well-oiled machines, your services & products are really connecting with your followers, and you feel like you’ve finally got something here.

But you haven’t moved the needle on your money situation.

Your savings account has barely grown (if at all), you’re paying yourself less than what you did at your full-time job, and you’re working a schedule that may support a wardrobe of leggings & top knots but also is causing those bags under your eyes.

While it seems like 401(k)s are more popular than Instagram pics of Starbucks cups (oh, hey, Pumpkin Spice Latte…I see you’re back), the data shows otherwise. In fact, over 31% of American households don’t have access to a plan like a 401(k) to save for retirement. And a majority of those are most likely made up of people just like you.

The wild ones. Creatives. Risk takers. Uber successful entrepreneurs kicking a$$ and taking names.

But just because you’re rolling in the dough now doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t give thought to your own retirement. This still needs to be a priority for you just like it was back in your days when you played Corporate Barbie for 9 hours a day, 5 days a week.

I don’t know about you, but I have a very hard time making decisions that will affect me for a long period of time.

For instance, it’s been 5 years since I moved into my house, and I still don’t have anything hanging above my couch because I can’t quite decide what I want.

5. YEARS.

However, there are times when you have to have a tad bit more urgency in getting something done, and when you’re starting out your business or aren’t happy with your current bank, opening a new checking account is one of them.
