Challenges Faced During the Journey

Emily Reynolds Bergh 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 required 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 focused on getting the word out. She was available for hire, things transpired, and before she knew it, she had many new clients and a full-time staff member - they kicked butt! It was hard and 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, working remotely around the country — it’s pretty amazing!


Advice for Women Entrepreneurs:

Find time for yourself - Emily's suggestion: book your mornings because she loves them and really doesn't accept or adjust them unless absolutely needed — when you work for yourself, try to be the best boss to yourself.
