Tell us a little about your business. – I help other businesses save time and avoid effort so they can have more energy to focus on what they do best in their businesses and ease their brain struggle with online marketing. Using a service like mine is advantageous for businesses that don’t have the need for physical in-house office staff, can do without employee related expenses, and desire to work with a professional like-minded business owner who will get the job completed in excellence. Specifically, I work with helping them maintain and schedule their email campaigns and email marketing messages to their growing customer and client list, get them set up with email marketing if they’re not currently set up as well as develop content for their email campaigns, blog posts, online articles, and social media.
How did you get started in the business? – I’m originally from Mississippi but have made Omaha my home for the past 7 years. I initially came here to work for Union Pacific Railroad where I worked at headquarters for 6 years in finance for half of my time there and the other half in department of transportation compliance with commercial drivers. I developed a desire and a hunger for entrepreneurship during my time in the corporate setting which is what I believe I was created for. My journey over the past two years of starting up my business has consisted of investing a lot of time and money into coaching, mentoring, and traveling locally and out of state to workshops and seminars to network with other entrepreneurs and to develop the mind set and skills of an entrepreneur.
Tell us a little about your family. – I’m married to my husband Dedrick who is a manager at the Irvington Walmart in Omaha. My husband and I are both very active and enjoy working out 5 to 6 days a week. We have two children; a 9 year old daughter and a 14 year old son. My daughter is an aspiring viola player (1st year) and volunteers at church with the children’s sound and lighting team and glow hands drama team. My son is a freshman in high school and also volunteers at our church as a teacher-helper to elementary kids. He’s a 4 year percussion player who loves drawing Manga characters and has joined the Manga drawing and drama club after school at Burke High School this year.
What is the most unique or interesting thing about you that most people probably don’t know? – I really enjoy watching horror movies (mainly for the suspense) and love all of the marvel action hero movies like Spiderman, Batman, Thor, Avengers and the list goes on!
What is your favorite book or the last good book you read? – My favorite book is The Giver by Lois Lowry. I remember reading this book as a kid and getting immersed in it. Creating the perfect world without spot, wrinkle, fear, music, love, choices, or even pain is not living at all. I believe entrepreneurship really means living in a world with no limits where you choose your destiny and society or systems like those in The Giver can’t contain you.
