Before we talk about your business, tell us who you are?
I’m originally from the south and now live in Oregon with my husband, 2 amazing kiddos and rescue pup! I’ve been an entrepreneur for 12+ years and love it! When I’m not working, you can find me camping with my family, running or drinking a glass of wine!
TELL US HOW YOU STARTED ON YOUR JOURNEY AND WHAT SETS YOU APART!
I started my first entrepreneurial journey in 2007 with my husband. We decided to start an organic farm & micro-brewery in the Cascade Mountains of the Pacific Northwest.
During the seven years that we ran Acadian Farms & Brewery, I was in charge of all things marketing- everything from events, to social media to website design.
Learning + doing everything on my own, I created an SEO-friendly website that reached #1 on Google and utilized the power of social media and influencer outreach to get featured in prominent publications like The Oregonian, Portland Monthly and The Seattle Times, as well as popular craft beer blogs.
After closing our doors due to creating too much traffic (literally), I wanted to take what I learned from the experience and help other small businesses. So I spent the next five years working at digital marketing agencies and expanded my marketing chops by learning the systems, tools and strategies implemented by agencies to achieve massive growth.
And that’s what I’m sharing with business owners- knowledge from both sides! I truly wish that I had a step-by-step strategy to follow when we were growing our business, but there wasn’t one.
What advice do you have for moms who want to start a business?
What Podcast do you recommend?
I have a podcast, so I would recommend that one 🙂 It’s called Bubbles & Biz and I chat with female entrepreneurs over a glass of bubbly (that I send to them)!
