Challenges Faced During the Journey:
She started her company after leaving another firm on Christmas Day- she was not experiencing the authenticity, the passion and the vigor that she wanted to convey to clients and made a leap of faith with NO financial backing- her car crashed, literally like a country song and she relied money for its repairs, instead of repairing the car with the dealer she took half the money and started her business, she set-up a website, a new name and got going on getting the word out she was available for hire, things transpired and before she knew it I had many new clients and a full time staff member- they kicked butt! It was hard and it was not for the faint of heart, there was a lot of being scrappy and putting things on credit- but they grew and today they have a team of over 15 and are in 3 cities and work remotely around the country— it’s pretty darn amazing!
Advice for Women Entrepreneurs:
Find time for you- she book her mornings- because she love them and really don't accept or adjust them unless absolutely needed— when you work for yourself, try to be the best boss to yourself.
