The Best Investments I Made in my Business

Let’s be real.

You know this business journey has not been an easy one.

But bringing you behind the scenes is one of my favourite things to do in this whole process.

Because I know what it feels like to be starting out, with little to no money and trying to figure out where you should be spending that money is HARD.

Learn from my experience and I hope it will help you decide where to drop your cash.


Though all the imposter syndrome, self doubt, and mistakes, what was the one thing that stayed consistent?


No matter what you’re creating, I think mentorship is one of the most important things you invest in. 

While you might think I’m the one with all the answers, I’m really NOT. 

And having a mentor or business coach SAVES me from those questions I have no answers for.

Here’s what you should look for in a mentor or business coach.

P.S. I mention being specific as one of the tips here, so if you need a hand with that, this resource will help you pick your niche


YouTube is my favourite way to get more eyes on my work, and more leads to my business.

BUT if you’re someone who is just beginning your YouTube journey (as in, no videos yet!), start here

Otherwise, I celebrated the AMAZING milestone of 100k subs! 

Of course, I celebrated with a new Youtube setup.

A $3000 YouTube filming setup to be exact.

If you’re on the verge of a YouTube upgrade yourself, you can see if this is MY worth it winner.

I know you might be thinking…

Don’t worry.

I gotchu covered.


I have already shared my original setup that I STARTED with.

I have filmed dooozens of videos with this setup.

So if you had a similar question to Jenel, this will definitely help you!

And as an EXTRA BONUS (because I know there are some amazing YouTubers reading this)…

If you want to become a content batching pro, use this: 

Save TIME and get more done with CONTENT BATCHING.
