Let's dive into the interview!
What are you currently doing as an entrepreneur and how long have you been involved with this particular endeavor and what inspired you to pursue it?
I empower women in male-dominated fields to overcome stress and anxiety, enabling them to thrive instead of just surviving the 9-5. Initially drawn to network marketing, my journey led me to discover my passion for addressing workplace inequalities, like manterruptions and mansplaining. Once hesitant about addressing these topics, I found that the content came naturally, as I had personally faced these challenges without previously naming them.
Describe your typical daily routine, including your morning and evening habits? Are there any specific habits and/or routines that particularly contribute to your business success and your peace of mind within your busy schedule?
I've struggled to maintain a consistent morning routine before work. However, I always check my previous day's TikTok performance and listen to a podcast. At night, I read a bit and check my social media. On weekends, I prepare my posts for the busy week ahead, scripting TikToks, repurposing them for FB & IG, and scheduling my FB group posts. Mondays are reserved for recording TikToks and other videos.
What are the top three sources that inspire you in your business journey, whether individuals, experiences, locations, etc?
My mastermind group, Ed Mylett podcast and books. I always want to learn something new or how I can do something better.
Are there any business tools or resources that you rely on to facilitate your day-to-today operations?
- ChatGPT has been a game-changer for me
- Repurpose.io is a life saver
- Canva is amazing
Throughout your journey as an entrepreneur, what are key lessons you have learned that have steered you to your current success?
Always be learning and stay uncomfortable.
On challenging days, weeks, or months, have you ever contemplated giving up? If so, how do you gather your strength and remain resilient to continue to pursue your entrepreneurial journey?
I've often thought of quitting, but top influencers like Ed Mylett and Tom Bilyeu suggest that feeling this way means you're on the right path.
“If you don't feel like quitting at least once a month, you're not doing something right” or you're not traveling the road less traveled.
Conversations with my mentors, including Kathy and her daughter, Jordan, reassured me that my feelings were typical and I wasn't just complaining. 🤣
To round off, let's bring in a few personal aspects. What's your definition of success? Do you have a personal mantra that you live by? Can you also share a recent or favorite book you read that provided you with new insights or perspectives?
Success for me is feeling content in my own skin and assisting others in their journey. My mantra is “Live Life Without Boundaries.” Currently, my favorite books are Ed Mylett's “The Power of One More” and Garrain Jones' “Change Your Mindset Change Your Life.”
