Stop and think of the most successful people that you know or know of. Have someone in your mind? Chances are that the person or people that you’re thinking of is an entrepreneur. From Bill Gates to Elon Musks, big ideas lead to big successes. However, a budding entrepreneur begins a new business venture every day and while the venture can be lucrative, many fail to reach their potential for a number of reasons.

What traits make you a leader in the marketing field?
Persistence, dedication, and passion for my craft. I talk to and learn from as many people as I can. These traits have led me to learn things I wouldn’t have if I tried to do it on my own and why I decided to work with others to see their venture succeed.
How do you use your skills to help your clients?
I work with entrepreneurs who have a goal to create a product or service and watch it flourish, but understand that delegating tasks is important to ensure that the best is always being done for you venture. Marketing is a great example of an aspect of entrepreneurship that can be the “make or break” between successful and unsuccessful endeavors. By working with us, you can rest assured that we will stay on top of your campaign to ensure that it’s being seen by the right audience.
What is the biggest marketing mistake new entrepreneurs make?
I often see great ventures go unnoticed due to underestimation of the importance of marketing. You can have the best idea in the world, but if no one knows about it, it won’t get far. Many believe that because they understand basic marketing techniques, they’ll be okay. However, marketing to your audience is a full-time project and requires a plan and the ability to see that plan through by staying up to date with marketing industry knowledge and focus on expanding your client base.
What is something that you do exceptionally well?
I’m a great communicator; so much so, that I’ve made it my career! I know that nothing can succeed without being able to clearly communicate your mission to your clients. I know how to do that utilizing every avenue possible.
