There’s more to being a frugal entrepreneur than how you spend your money.

In this podcast episode, Tania speaks about what it means to have a frugal entrepreneurial mindset with an entrepreneur who shows others how to launch and manage an online business on a budget.

Sarah St John has created several startups throughout her entrepreneurial career of over a decade. She is an entrepreneur, podcaster, author and describes herself as an animal lover and world traveler. Sarah currently owns a podcast production agency called PodSeam and she is also the podcast host of “Frugalpreneur: Building a Business on a Bootstrapped Budget”.

"You could do like I did and try different things out.  But at a certain point you do need to pick that one thing and focus on that one thing, because I learned that when your hand is in a bunch of different things, it gets overwhelming.  If you're putting 20% of your energy and focus into five different things instead of a 100% into one thing, none of them are going to be that successful." - Sarah St John
