MY WHY | Bootstrap Biz Advice

In 2011, I quit my part-time student worker job to start a family business with my husband. We did not come from a family of entrepreneurs and had no formal business training. I was an actress and he was a filmmaker but we believed that we could help people share their stories through the power of video at a price they could afford. 


In 2016, I decided to launch my own business LIVE ON PERISCOPE and within minutes I received my first marketing consulting client. Livestreaming was how I got my start and I'm so excited to bring it back because it allows me to engage with my audience in real-time. Shortly after that, I became a Squarespace Top-Level Expert & Fractional CMO but I realized after 10 years of working for clients I was ready to educate full-time vs to execute for other people's brands. 


Entrepreneurship changed our lives and now I have the honor and privilege to be the mentor I always wanted through YouTube. That's the heart behind why I teach. We had to bootstrap our way to this season and now it's time to give back and share that information with the world.
