How to Make Your Inventory-based Business More Profitable with Ciara Stockeland

How to Make Your Inventory-based Business More Profitable with Ciara Stockeland

It’s been a while since I’ve done an interview, and I’m excited to bring this one to you today.

If you feel overwhelmed by finances and numbers and money in your business, you’re far from alone. And if you own an inventory-based business, you may think you need to scale in ways that actually aren’t necessary. 

Today I’m chatting with Ciara Stockeland, expert profitability coach for inventory-based business owners. She’s talking about why she focuses on financial literacy and profitability, how she helps her clients define success using the profit first method, and how a coach can help you get on track with your finances and your goals.

She’s also sharing how you can start taking the steps to pay better attention to your money and align with the goals you have for your business.

I’d love to hear from you! As always, send me a DM @morethannicolej on Instagram! I love talking all things business and life with you guys more than anything, and I can’t wait to hear from you!

In this episode, you’ll learn…

  • [07:55] How Ciara operates as a business coach and why she helps inventory-based small business owners with financial literacy and profitability
  • [14:44] How Ciara helps her clients discover their definition of success and profitability (beyond chasing a dollar amount just because), and how the profit first method works
  • [23:38] Common money struggles of Ciara’s business owner clients, and why hiring a coach is an investment (not an expense)
  • [28:21] How you can work with Ciara, and her advice for actions you can take now to get more comfortable with your numbers
