In this episode of Entrepreneur Journeys, I welcome Heather Zeitzwolfe, the host of Get Radical with Your Business, to discuss various aspects of entrepreneurship. Heather shares her journey from studying fashion design to advertising and market research, before finally starting her own business in her 50s.
We also dive into the importance of understanding the reasoning behind business decisions and working with creatives who may struggle with finances. Heather also talks about the benefits of collaboration through her Rad Pack community, and the importance of testing and tweaking products/services while getting feedback from customers. A great listen for aspiring or current entrepreneurs looking to gain insights from someone who has been through the journey.
Heather is a radical profit fairy extraordinaire! At “Get Radical With Your Business”, She supports service-based creative entrepreneurs to build profitable businesses the fun way—by embracing your superpowers! Authenticity is key! She stands out from the crowd as a long-time vegan, Gen-Xer, cat mom, drag queen enthusiast, and collector of weird dolls and lunchboxes who is more likely to have pink hair than a navy blazer.
Heather’s professional experience includes fashion design, market research, and live theater. She is a lifelong learner and went back to college in my 40s, getting a degree in accounting, and then taking the plunge in her 50s to become an entrepreneur. She has a no-shame approach to money, turning drudgery into a disco party! Through her strategic advising, membership, and group programs, She helps creative entrepreneurs monetize their passion, while finding work-life balance, all with fun and flair!
