The Original Savvy Business Owner  

Heather Crabtree believes that you should run your business and it should not run you, and that is why she is a business strategist for creative entrepreneurs. However, she did not begin her career journey as a business strategist, instead she started as a lawyer, what she had always thought she was meant to be. After her father passed away, her life turned upside down and she was unhappy working at a law firm. With the support of her partner, she stopped practicing and went into the wedding planning business. In 2014, she sold her business to a team member and decided she would create a community of like-minded women and business owners with the Savvy Business Circle.

Sharp Quotes:

My title being this business strategist, you would think that I had this game plan behind it, but I didn’t.”

 

 

I am a continual learner, so I would just watch people, and pick apart what they were doing, and was like ‘okay how can I use this for my business?’ I was continually doing that and that’s how I built the community.

 

I wanted there to be a place where it wasn’t catty, and saying, ‘look at her success’ and bringing her down. I really wanted it to be a positive uplifting place.

 

You don’t want it to be all about money, but at the end of the day,you are a business owner, and you are here to make a profit too.

 

The challenge over the past few months has been: how does this fit within the bigger vision, and how do I still make it work for me and also the community..”

 

“I am a big dreamer, and I am also a big action taker. So, if I say I am going to do something, I am going to do it, and I am going to do it really well.”

 

“My whole thing is sharing your smarts and your heart because I think your heart has to be put in place in your business.
