Tell us about your work. What inspired you to start your business? Where did you start and where are you now?
One of an entrepreneur’s biggest issues is cash flow; making money. Even though I’ve had to overcome many challenges as a business owner, I always instinctively knew how to make money – cash flow has never been an issue for me.
As you can imagine, this is something that many entrepreneurs need help with. Over time, I had more and more female entrepreneurs reaching out to me, asking me how to get more clients. These days, I primarily spend my time showing other business owners how to consistently attract more dream clients.
What do you see for your future?
Honestly? My big, scary dream is to help 1 million women achieve financial freedom.
What did you eat for breakfast?
The sexy answer is my berry smoothie, which I usually have in the mornings. Today, though, I ate cold pizza and I have no regrets.
What’s your workout?
I work out quite intensely every single day because I’m a bodybuilder. It’s my form of self-love and a great stress reliever.
What gets in YOUR WAY? What’s the one thing you’d like other female founders to know about overcoming that.
I want other female founders to know that it’s really normal to want to quit and “go get a real job”. We all feel like that sometimes.
What’s your favorite tech tool today–a must-have app, platform or software that helps you run the firm.
My team and I would not be able to survive without Asana, our task management software.
What would you say is your “entrepreneurial superpower?”
Love this question! My superpower is instinctively “just getting it”. I was a communication major so I really had no idea how business worked when I first started. I just followed my instincts and it’s allowed me to become really successful.
Who is the entrepreneur you admire most right now? Why does s/he inspire you?
If I am being totally honest, I actually really admire my clients. Most of my clients are brand new to the entrepreneurial space and are crushing their goals! Leaving their 9-5s, filling up group programs, and just becoming really successful themselves. That inspires me more than anything!
What the best advice you ever got, and from whom?
Things were once really tough in my business and I wanted to give up. My husband told me, “Just keep going, don’t give up.” and I am so grateful. I think about how different my life would have been if I hadn’t met him or hadn’t listened to his advice.
I highly recommend getting yourself a support system because it makes all the difference!!
