How did your awesome business come to be?
When I was laid off from the corporate world over 10 years ago, from a job that I despised, I remember walking out of the building and saying "now what do I do with my life"? I decided to become a certified personal trainer and start my own business as well as a blog. I just went for it and went BIG. When clients started reaching out to me about representing them on social media, I decided to step away from my personal training business and pursue social media. There wasn't really a plan, it kind of all just happened, and I just went with it, because it felt right, and I LOVE what I do.
Who inspired you to pursue entrepreneurship?
My late father. He always told me to just "GO FOR IT". I have lived by this motto through my athletic career and my business career. Elli Richter, a local coach and yoga teacher who I have abounding love and respect for. She really gave me the courage and support to take my business to the next level over the last year.
I'm on a mission to...
Build my BRAND and build the brands that I work for.
Have you ever had a mentor? If so, how did they help you?
I would consider my mentor to be my Life Coach. She has helped me in so many ways and still does and I cannot imagine my life without her. She has helped me physically, emotionally, and professionally. Grateful for her every day!
How do you define success for yourself?
Success to me is receiving phone calls, texts, and messages from clients, friends, and family, about how much they appreciate, love, and are inspired by me. I want to know that I am making a difference in people's lives and also building my client's businesses. This means the world to me.
We all love failure & flop stories! Tell us about something you tried in business that didn't work, and how you moved beyond it.
Posting on Black Friday for myself and my brands...It was a total FLOP and frustrated the heck out of me this weekend. I was ready to pull my hair out.
What is a recent success that you're super proud of accomplishing?
Overall just building my clients followings and profile views, because I know that this is leading to sales and that is what makes me happy and them happy.
What is your superpower?
I am a "giver" and I love to inspire and brag about those
What is the least sexy part of your job?
That it feels like I can never take a break. A day does not go by that I am not responding to emails or scrolling or liking. Social Media NEVER stops.
What do you hope to learn from your community of peers inside the Hatch Tribe Members Circle? *
I want to not only connect with like minded women in this circle, but I also want to gain knowledge about how to build my brand and the brands that I represent. My goal is to build the platforms that I work on daily to help me not only succeed, but also my clients. I am SO READY TO DO THIS!
