What do you do? (What's your job description / title?): Marketing Strategist for Women Entrepreneurs
What do you REALLY do?: I help women take their offline expertise and turn it into a thriving online business. I have two main sides of my business: my four month 1:1 coaching program for women looking to really get their marketing in place and see results in their online business and I do Facebook Ad management and testing.
How/when did you get started?: I got started in the online space a few years ago working as freelancer on UpWork.com. I was in college and ready to do anything to make some good money! I was majoring in Advertising so social media, writing and designing was really exciting for me to do for clients. My very first gig was putting pre-written tweets in HootSuite for 10 hours a week for $7 an hour. HA! Then I dabbled and explored writing, creating strategy, doing paid advertising, project management, web design, print design, social media, email marketing and the list goes on. Finally I cam across this Facebook group of women entrepreneurs. It was pretty much love at first sight. I felt so empowered, so excited and that I finally had the chance to make a real difference in other's lives on so many levels versus just working at an agency doing work for big corporations.
What's your next big thing?: I'm working on creating an amazing, highly engaged and HUGE Facebook group of women entrepreneurs - the Creative Corner.
What's the one thing you'd like to share with all other #girlbosses?!: Stop waiting and just do what your heart is dying to do. I see so many women waiting for everything to be perfect before they put themselves out there. Here's the thing YOU are already perfect and you are your business. Share what you love with open arms and the money, clients and thriving business will follow.
Celeb Crush: I have a major girl crush right now on Ashley Graham.
