Ingrid Thompson: How to Make Good Decisions in Your Business 

Ingrid Thompson is the Founder of Healthy Numbers, where she provides business education and financial acumen training designed for small business owners.

She is the author of So You Want to Start a Business, and hosts a successful podcast of the same name where she invites entrepreneurs to share their business startup stories.

After a successful corporate career, Ingrid now devotes herself to working with small business owners by educating, guiding, and supporting them to run and grow their businesses.

Ingrid lives in Sydney, Australia with her partner and their four cats and works with clients in the health and wellbeing industry from all over the world.

Ingrid joins me today to share how she helps small business owners and entrepreneurs put systems and processes in place that allow them to manage and scale their business.

She dives into the importance of outsourcing the parts of your business that you are not an expert in and how to create a successful ‘tribe’ that helps your company succeed.

Ingrid also shares how she stays up to date professionally, and why she now embraces technology to help her organise her business after having initially being resistant.

“There’s a difference between being in a business and being self-employed.”
