Building and Evolving Profitable Project Plan with Jennifer Bourn

Jennifer Bourn has been successfully running Profitable Project Plan, her training program for freelancers and small business owners, for several years. But it wasn’t something that instantly made her a ton or money, and it’s evolved over time. We’re getting back to basics here in 2021, so Jennifer and I talk about what you’ll learn in Profitable Project Plan, but we’ll also talk about how she built it, and how she evolved it to make it the perfect program for anyone who wants to build a better business.

Sara Dunn is one of my favorite people to talk to, and for good reason. She’s fun, honest, and has a lot of great insight! Today we’re following up on episode 69, where we talked about her starting to niche down. Now, 2 years and nearly 100 episodes later, she’s fully into her niche business. We talk about making some tough decisions, and how to stay motivated. I truly think this is something every freelancer and small business owner should hear!

We talk a lot about something that’s hard for a lot of freelancers to talk about: cashflow. Feast, Famine, and Client Relationships have been themes of this season and they all relate to the same thing: managing your money properly so you can survive as a business. Let’s hear how Matt does it.
