Episode 1 Show Notes

In this episode, you’ll get to know about me. Who I am, where I was in my moments of weakness, and why I decided to turn my life around by starting my own biz.

I will give you some insight into the things that worked for me in my pursuit of being a female entrepreneur, and give you some tips on the platform that truly launched my success: Pinterest.

Takeaways From This Episode You Won’t Want to Miss:

  • Who am I?
  • Even with my masters in social work, a few years back the only job I could find was cleaning workout equipment for minimum wage. I really felt like I was letting myself and my family down. That’s when I decided to make a change. I wanted to start my own business and be the #girlboss I knew was in me. Pinterest changed my life. I went from making minimizing wage to six figures within 2 years.
  • I originally started the success of my business with Facebook and Instagram (70k followers combined!) When things started to change on these two platforms, I began adding my content to Pinterest. Before I knew it, my blog was exploding from Pinterest.
  • I love working with women who feel like they are made for more. Maybe they are just lost on strategies, not sure how to move forward. I am their go-to person to help them get it out. From the experiences I’ve had, that is such a rewarding feeling. If I can do it- so can you.
  • Pinterest gets you leads and sales on autopilot. Things I posted 2-3 years ago are still bringing me leads and sales. Instagram and FB posts are gone within 24 hours, buried in peoples feeds. Pinterest is a search engine.
