One of the hardest parts of business is not knowing exactly how much money you’re going to make.

In this episode, we’re continuing our discussion about money issues we deal with as business owners. Today we’re tackling the feast and famine cycle, and dealing with unpredictable income alone and as a couple.

In this episode:

  • What feast and famine means for business owners and freelancers
  • How the feast and famine cycle affected Lisa as a solo business owner
  • How recurring income can help mitigate the unpredictability of the feast and famine cycle
  • How providing for a household of two affects the feast and famine cycle, and what it looked like with Lisa’s business providing our sole source of income
  • How your motivation, mindset, and creativity changes during feast periods versus famine periods
  • How we kept prioritizing what would immediately bring in money, and why this was a problem
  • The problem with work/life balance when your income is unpredictable, and why Lisa doesn’t really believe work/life balance is truly attainable
