10 MISTAKES EVERY NEWBIE MAKES WHEN USING FONTS FOR THEIR BUSINESS

So you want to DIY your brand until you can afford to hire someone to help, but you just can’t seem to get your fonts right.

Well for one, I think, this is a smart way to get started with your business. So many things change when you first get started with your business that things are more fluid and less solidified. This is all a part of the process. 

As you start working on your business and learning more about what direction you really do want to take you’ll have the flexibility to make adjustments and changes.

There is nothing that hurts my heart more than when I talk to an entrepreneur and they tell me they NEED what I have to offer, but they don't have the money to invest. Quite honestly, it makes me really sad for them. Now I can see if it's a 4-figure or more investment, but when it's a minimal investment for a high valued product or service it stings a bit. I'm talking anything from $7-$197. 

If you can't invest for less than $200, then are you really running a business? Are you taking entrepreneurship serious?
