The entrepreneur behind this guide...
I'm Leah, the founder of the business mentorship and entrepreneurship platform, Urban 20 Something. In just a few years, my side hustle turned into a six-figure business and full-time job.
When I started investing in my business, I was working at a nonprofit and I was barely making a liveable wage for New York City standards. Yes, this is a privilege on its own. But I was living paycheck to paycheck. On top of that, I had student loans, which cost around $700/ month. At first, I started budgeting out portions of my paycheck to invest in my business. As you can guess, investing that way is NOT what allowed me to quit my job and build a six-figure business. I had to learn a big lesson about what it means to go “all in” before I was able to see the results I actually desired.
It took longer than I wanted it to, but eventually, I realized where I was holding myself back. From there, I went ALL IN. That's when I found the business momentum I had always desired, left my 9-5 job, and hit six-figures in under a year.
Yet still, I remember perfectly feeling like I wanted to invest in my business but couldn't. And nearly every day I talk to aspiring entrepreneurs that know the desire to grow their business, but that they can't afford to do so.
That's why I put this guide together. Never say "I can't afford it" and rob your business of its potential again.

Step 1- Understanding what you need
One of the things that keep people from really making their business happen is living without clarity around what it ACTUALLY takes financially. Let’s get clear on what you need to do based on your timeline, your goals, and your vision.
Step 2- Finding the resources to invest
Now that you have an honest understanding of what it takes to make your goals happen, let’s find the resources to do it. Some of it might feel uncomfortable or even scary. But remember, the comfort zone you’ve operated in so far got you exactly where are you now, and not where you want to be.
Step 3- Investing wisely
Finally, figure out the criteria and considerations to make your investments wisely. And, to make sure you have a plan for how they will pay themselves back or off.
