Entrepreneur Interview – Brenda Adelman

Entrepreneur Interview – Brenda AdelmanBrenda Adelman is an On-Stage and On-Video Performance Coach, Storytelling Mentor and Forgiveness Expert. She has a critically acclaimed one-woman show, based on her life story, that she’s performed in London, NYC and Los Angeles, and a Hero of Forgiveness Award from the Hawaii International Forgiveness Project. Brenda has been interviewed on Fox-TV news and on NPR.

Entrepreneur Interview Q & A

—–

1. What is your business/Business Name? What does your business do?

Forgiveness and Freedom. I teach people how to forgive the past, how to heal from their story, and then how to share it in a captivating way that moves their viewers, readers, audiences, and tribe to action.

2. Why did you get into this field? What opportunities did you see?

I began as an actor, then started teaching about forgiveness because of my own BIG Forgiveness Story. My father killed my mother and married her sister. Once I learned that freedom was on the other side of forgiveness, I had a “knowing” that I had to share about it. Over the years, many performers and business owners asked me about my one-woman show and expressed interest in speaking about their lives. I looked at what was stopping them; it was resistance because they didn’t know how to handle their emotions and a lack of skill, so I decided I would teach both. I created a couple of online programs and I coach privately.

3. What have been your biggest challenges?

The biggest challenge was learning all the new skills that came with bringing my in-person business online. Luckily, I invested in some wonderful trainings and great coaches and teachers, and I hired just enough virtual assistance to get me in the game early on.

4. What has been your greatest reward?

I change peoples lives that I could never have reached in person. I have entrepreneur clients who have never shared their story (because it was too painful) until they worked with me. I have performer clients on tour with their solo-shows in Europe, NYC, Orlando, and Seattle. These are people who had a dream, but most didn’t set foot onstage until they got into my program. I have residual income coming in from work that’s already been done.

5. If you could change something, what would it be?

I wish I saw the overall picture when I first began. Instead i was investing in services that I didn’t need to be investing in yet. For example, having a full time virtual assistant when I first began.

6. If you could give a new entrepreneur advice, what would it be?

Do your research when you are hiring a coach. Don’t go for the big guru type programs where you don’t get one-on-one help. It’s important to have access to your coach. Get the accountability you need.

7. Social Media. Yay or Nay?

Yay. Facebook and Twitter.

8. How do you market your products?

My e-zine, social media promo days, my Facebook group, giveaways, Facebook ads, website, amazon.

9. Is your business a service or a product? If you are a product, how do you handle production?

Service and digital products. Coaching, speaking, show.

10. What is unique about your business?

I come from a professional acting background, have performed my show and presented for over 11,000 people internationally from women prisoners to college students to youth at risk to domestic violence trainings to the US military to theatre festivals. I’m a critically acclaimed actor, studied at the top schools. And I come from a healing background — I have a Master’s degree in Spiritual Psychology.

11. Sell me your product/service.

If you are a performer, actor, singer, musician, poet, or dancer tired of waiting for someone else to give you a break, sign up for my comprehensive online video program ‘How to Create, Promote and Profit with a One-Person Show’ and let’s get you on the map. Create fans, fully express yourself and make money. Plus you’ll have access to Brenda weekly in our private program community on Facebook, ‘The Inner Guide to Success’ PDF (to help move you through resistance), the ‘4 Part Ultimate SHOW Success Planner’, and access to 2 interviews. One is with an entertainment attorney who answers questions regarding writing about real life people, and one with an actor who surpassed her crowdfunding goals to pay for her creative project.

If you are an entrepreneur with a big message to share and want to add speaking to your business model (on stage to stand out and speak your truth and use your talent) you’ll learn how to put a five to 20 minute to full-length presentation together in ‘How to Create, Promote and Profit with a One-Person Show’. Just $597 http://www.forgivenessandfreedom.com/createyoursoloshow

If you are an entrepreneur who wants to find the right story to share to serve your business, know how to handle the emotions of your story, learn how to craft it so you are compelling, and how to stand out on stage and be authentic in your videos, you can learn everything you need in my 3 Part Master Class Series ‘The Freedom to Tell Your Hero Story’. The Home Study version is just $197,

Entrepreneur Interview – Jenny Fitz

Entrepreneur Interview - Jenny FitzAfter owning her first award winning company for 11 years, Jenny Fitz felt it was time to go global. Her ability to network, promote and support female entrepreneurs has resulted in FEMM International.

.

Entrepreneur Interview Q & A

—–

1. What is your business/Business Name? What does your business do?

Jenny Fitz is the Founder of FEMM International (Female Entrepreneur & Mentorship Movement). The conduit between experts and those seeking knowledge. The focus is to inspire and embolden youth and women around the globe to create positive change.

2. Why did you get into this field? What opportunities did you see?

I owned and operated a business in a small town, yet I was attending workshops and conferences on a much larger scale; that really put things into perspective.

Female entrepreneurs are making an impact, and with there being over 120 million of them in the world, what better way to be a part of the movement then to model a business around it!

3. What have been your biggest challenges?

So far, it has been creating a global awareness so the FEMM community can showcase the kick-ass women out there who are changing the world for the better.

4. What has been your greatest reward?

The support of my community, both on-line and off as the transition and focus changes from my first company to the new one, has been motivational. Also getting to interview Emmy Award Winners, CEOs, artists/authors, etc (all entrepreneurs and all female) has been the bread and butter of the whole company!

5. If you could change something, what would it be?

I would change the views that the world still has on women and their capabilities within the workplace. Women are taking over the world and I fully intend to be on that train.

6. If you could give a new entrepreneur advice, what would it be?

Don’t be naive. It is difficult to come up with a new idea that hasn’t already been saturated. Make sure you research, and once you have a plan in place, everything will be “easy peasy, lemon squeezy.”

Jenny Fitz7. Social Media. Yay or Nay?

Yay, it’s actually bizarre how much time people spend on it and how many run their successful businesses on teaching the ins and outs of social media. Definitely need to have a presence and keep up with the pace.

8. How do you market your products?

Social media, website and email list are all super important. We are starting webinars, Twitter parties, podcasts, etc, in the New Year and can’t wait!

9. Is your business a service or a product? If you are a product, how do you handle production?

We have both, and we outsource our products to the experts who know how to do it right.

10. What is unique about your business?

We aren’t focused on one business sector or one area of expertise. We want the whole world to know what FEMMpreneurs have to offer and how to achieve success.

11. Sell me your product/service.

This is YOUR time. You have tried and failed, or not tried at all in case you failed. It is in YOU to inspire and embolden, and the only way to live the life you deserve is to take a chance on you. Become a FEMMpreneur and join the Movement that is changing the world as we know it. This is YOUR time.

12. How can people get in touch with you? What’s your website/Contact information?

Entrepreneur Interview – Morissa Schwartz

Entrepreneur Interview - Morissa SchwartzMorissa Schwartz is a digital entrepreneur, singer, bestselling author, Guinness World Record Breaker, and professional speaker. You’ve seen her on MTV, Fox, News 12, and more, and read her work for Entertainment Weekly, Hello Giggles, and more.

Entrepreneur Interview Q & A

—–

1. What is your business/Business Name? What does your business do?

GenZ Publishing is an innovative publishing company that seeks to publish the kinds of books and authors we don’t often see published by other publishers.

2. Why did you get into this field? What opportunities did you see?

I had my first book professionally published and go on to be a bestseller when I was in college. So many people asked me how I got a book published at such a young age, and I didn’t have a great answer for them. I knew I was incredibly lucky. So I started a publishing company to allow authors my own age, new authors and innovative authors a place to be published.

3. What have been your biggest challenges?

At the beginning it was my age (I was a college student!) and getting people to take me seriously while I gained confidence in myself.

4. What has been your greatest reward?

Seeing the authors’ excitement when they are published. It is life changing.

5. If you could change something, what would it be?

It may sound like a cliche, but it would be less hate and more tolerance. See, I am a strong believer that, “there’s no one you wouldn’t love once you learn their story.”

6. If you could give a new entrepreneur advice, what would it be?

Be not afraid. It may seem extremely difficult and impossible, but if you believe you will be a success, you will stop at nothing until you are.

Morissa Schwartz7. Social Media. Yay or Nay?

Yay, yay, 100% yay! My business would not exist without social media. See, I started my company as a college student with no budget. I grew GenZ through social media outreach; that was it. Social media is incredible.

8. How do you market your products?

Social media. Book festivals, fairs and readings. Our website: GenZPublishing.org.

9. Is your business a service or a product? If you are a product, how do you handle production?

We have eBooks and paperback books.

10. What is unique about your business?

We give a voice to an innovative group of people often unheard of.

11. Sell me your product/service.

Reading the same books as everyone else will just mean that you think like everyone else. With GenZ’s books, you can challenge your mind and expectations with innovative books written by some of the brightest writers of our time.

12. How can people get in touch with you? What’s your website/Contact information?

Entrepreneur Interview – Paulina Stevenson

Paulina Stevenson is a Certified Life Coach, Ordained Minister, Writer, and budding Entrepreneur. She currently resides in Connecticut and is completing her first devotional.

Entrepreneur Interview Q & A

—–

1. What is your business/Business Name? What does your business do?

Soteria Life Coaching by Paulina is the name of my business where I function as a solopreneur Spiritual Life and Solution Focused Coach.

Entrepreneur Interview - Paulina Stevenson2. Why did you get into this field? What opportunities did you see?

After spending over 15 years in Human Resource Consulting, I grew more interested in the career counseling and employee relations side rather than the recruitment and benefits. I became a go-to person and realized that I could be a full time resource for those with more personal issues to solve. I saw the opportunity to combine that experience with my own life challenges and found that coaching was a comfortable fit for me.

3. What have been your biggest challenges?

My own personal decision to merge ministry with business was my toughest decision. I wanted to strike a healthy balance between serving my clients and serving WITH my clients. In addition, I wanted potential clients to understand that I was in business to empower other women in leadership roles, and that includes Ministerial roles.

4. What has been your greatest reward?

My greatest reward has been watching women unfold and blossom from being afraid to being bold, from having limited self esteem to soaring self esteem. It is amazing to watch someone move from feeling like a victim to being totally empowered and relentlessly confident in their own abilities.

5. If you could change something, what would it be?

Nothing. I am enjoying the journey!

6. If you could give a new entrepreneur advice, what would it be?

Follow your vision; see it through to the very end no matter what obstacles you encounter. Trust your intuition and always examine your options before making any rash decisions. Surround yourself with like-minded people who support your vision and don’t compromise your values.

Paulina Stevenson7. Social Media. Yay or Nay?

YAY.

8. How do you market your products?

Facebook, Instagram and Referrals.

9. Is your business a service or a product? If you are a product, how do you handle production?

It is a service for now. However, I am in the planning stages of presenting products that will nicely compliment Life Coaching.

10. What is unique about your business?

I offer comprehensive coaching that includes transformational thinking, wellness, and spiritual development. I cater to women of a certain age who wish to reinvent themselves personally, professionally and spiritually. I like to think of myself as a holistic, open-minded coach who cares about individual and specific needs.

11. Sell me your product/service.

The very things that are unique about my business are its strongest selling points.

Entrepreneur Interview – Elizabeth Blade

Elizabeth Blade is an author and poet. She has co-authored several pieces, two of which became international best sellers. Elizabeth is also wanting to branch out as a freelance writer.

Entrepreneur Interview Q & A

—–

1. What is your business/Business Name? What does your business do?

My business name is Moondance Word Artistry. I write poetry, inspirational pieces and even lyrics — for all occasions. I am also available to write for online columns and magazines.

2. Why did you get into this field? What opportunities did you see?

Entrepreneur Interview - Elizabeth BladeI decided to extend my words into the world, to be able to share what I do; it’s very special.

To know that there are people out there reading what I am writing… it’s wonderful. I hope it inspires them in some way.

3. What have been your biggest challenges?

My biggest challenge is not having the connections or the know-how on what forums, or where to go in regards to my freelance writing. But it’s incredible that my name is getting around. And as time goes on, I hope to be a columnist, whether its online, newspaper or even in a magazine.

4. What has been your greatest reward?

My greatest reward is having people believe in me and my writing, and that Moondance Word Artistry is something I founded myself. My goal is to reach even more people with what I do.

5. If you could change something, what would it be?

In all honesty, I would like to change the world for the better. I hope that my writing inspires others. It’s all about making a difference. I have written in a number of books of all different topics, and its about making a difference to those that are touched by what I write.

6. If you could give a new entrepreneur advice, what would it be?

My advice would be that everything is a learning curve, and to never give up. Although things will feel frustrating at times and you feel like giving up… walk on and be strong. You can do it!

I am learning everyday. One step at a time. Never let anyone shatter your dreams or your goals.

7. Social Media. Yay or Nay?

Social Media definitely has its perks. It can create such connections with people all over the world. I have spoken to many people, including celebrities, and it’s incredible.

Of course, as with everything, it can have disadvantages. But you can block what you don’t wish to see and focus on the things that you do want to see and experience.

8. How do you market your products?

I have a Facebook page where I share links to blogs or pieces of what I am doing. I also use Twitter now and again and share what I do.

Marketing can be tricky, but the key to that is to never give up and keep at it. People will notice even if they don’t say anything – I have found out. 🙂

9. Is your business a service or a product? If you are a product, how do you handle production?

I would say it’s a bit of both. My service is my writing and my writing is my product. My hope is to write in such a way that readers will enjoy what I write. I love writing, especially uplifting pieces and poetry. But my writing can cover a whole variety of needs.

10. What is unique about your business?

I think the uniqueness about my business is that I don’t know many people that do what I do. I write with care and from a place in my heart, and I put my soul into everything.

11. Sell me your product/service.

Moondance Word Artistry – I write for magazines, articles, newspapers, blogs, whatever you would like written. I’ll write it with style and care. Let me take you there! I whisk readers away with words and wonderment.

My services are affordable and written with class and elegance as well as a touch of magic.

12. How can people get in touch with you? What’s your website/Contact information?

Christina Washington

Christina Washington

Entrepreneur Interview Q & A

—–

1. What is your business/Business Name? What does your business do?

Innovative Learning Solutions is a professional and workforce development training company serving businesses and universities. We provide professional and workforce development training at customer sites such as clerical skills training, computer applications training, customer service training, effective communication, time management, business etiquette, and more. Our youth academic division, Young Scholars, is a provider of STEM (science, technology, engineering & math) educational programs, test prep services, tutoring, and custom learning solutions for children in grades pre-k-12.

2. Why did you get into this field? What opportunities did you see?

I saw an opportunity to assist others in gaining skills that would propel them forward in their careers and provide a greater sense of fulfillment. For our youth division, Young Scholars, I saw an opportunity to positively impact children and potentially change their entire outlook in life. The bottom line is that I want to help people – that’s what keeps me driven in this business.

3. What have been your biggest challenges?

Being a trailblazer in an untapped market. There have been plenty of discouraging moments in business where it took much more convincing of our clients, I believe, than it may have taken if we were in a larger city or market. But that would bring another set of challenges with more competitors, so we stayed the course and here we are. We are now capable of offering services outside of our immediate geographical area.

4. What has been your greatest reward?

Being able to positively impact so many children through our enrichment programs, summer camps and tutoring. We have had a tremendous outpouring of support and 100% customer satisfaction rating based on our genuine passion for helping others. Students have increased test scores and improved academic performance significantly while participating in our programs.

5. If you could change something, what would it be?

I would change the way some perceive the value of investing in their education. We believe that today’s children are tomorrow’s leaders. Until education becomes a priority, especially for children, the future will be at risk for under qualified workers and leaders.

Christina Washington6. If you could give a new entrepreneur advice, what would it be?

Do your homework. Know your industry’s ins and outs. Be an expert and advocate for your business’ products or services. Stay current on market trends and customer needs, and be flexible enough to meet those needs so long as it aligns with your business model.

7. Social Media. Yay or Nay?

Yay! Definitely.

8. How do you market your products?

Social media, website, flyers, email distribution, conferences, trade shows, press releases, and networking

9. Is your business a service or a product? If you are a product, how do you handle production?

My business is a service.

10. What is unique about your business?

All of our teachers are highly skilled with education, experience and training to provide quality results-driven educational programs.

11. Sell me your product/service.

Does your organization need professional or workforce development training to improve skills, work morale or overall performance? Does your child need help with homework or ACT math test prep? We can help! Contact us today to learn more about our Innovative Learning Solutions!

Entrepreneur Interview – Melanie Richards

In 2008, Melanie Richards developed a seminar called “Increase Your Visibility” to further her passion for helping others create a distinctive and memorable impression. Now Melanie helps entrepreneurs and business owners excavate, express and illuminate their difference so audiences can find their brand, event, storefront, or website without a flashlight.

Melanie RIchards

Melanie RIchards

Entrepreneur Interview Q & A

—–

1. What is your business/Business Name? What does your business do?

Increase Your Visibility provides brand recognition, engagement strategies, event marketing services, continuous support, plus unique gifts.

We design and discover innovative ways to showcase your business, manage your brand or event that engages your clients, donors, employees and guests. Our core specialties are trade show consulting, event marketing, subtle strategic solutions, engagement strategies, branded apparel, incentives and unique gifts for all occasions.

2. Why did you get into this field? What opportunities did you see?

After 16 years as a promotional products consultant, marketplace changes inspired me to share education, tips and host events to help others discover opportunities to grow their donors, revenue and teams. Increase Your Visibility was a stand alone seminar, and 5 years later became a series of marketing seminars.

This became a way to fuel my clients growth which ignited my professional and personal growth too. I fell in love with helping clients on a development, infrastructure and sustaining level with or without gifts.

3. What have been your biggest challenges?

Transforming from the ‘gift lady’ to the ‘gift, engagement and trade show lady’ confused clients about which hat I wear on a given day.

Building case histories, analyzing metrics and testimonials takes time. Some strategic alliances were not sure how to refer us.

4. What has been your greatest reward?

Helping entrepreneurs express their authentic brand in memorable ways to create responsive audiences and generate revenue at celebrations, conferences, events, presentations, or trade shows.

It is great to watch entrepreneurs and teams achieve success. We go from hand holding to autonomy on their terms and timetable.

5. If you could change something, what would it be?

New clients understand what we do and have become evangelists. Their loyalty and referrals are fueling our growth.

We had a launch party for an exclusive group of prior clients and strategic alliances. Other clients lost their understanding of our vision in the transition. Time to change that on our new website and eliminate the mystery.

Entrepreneur Interview - Melanie Richards6. If you could give a new entrepreneur advice, what would it be?

Practice deep breathing and imagine what success feels or looks like to you and your family.

Think of which bullseye is most important to your goals and budget before you leap into the pool without a life preserver: “Aim high – soaring; Aim low – boring.”

Surround yourself with people you trust to tell you the truth, who are willing to support you 24/7 and ready to give you clear, honest feedback even on days when they do not have the time or patience.

7. Social Media. Yay or Nay?

Yay, at a sloth’s pace.

8. How do you market your products?

In person and online. I love to share wrapped gifts to create positive marketing experiences.

9. Is your business a service or a product? If you are a product, how do you handle production?

Both. All products are manufactured by others and drop shipped.

10. What is unique about your business?

It is a marketing kaleidoscope that does not fit in one category or neatly in one drawer.

When you need help expressing your authentic brand in memorable ways to create responsive audiences and generate revenue, we are here to help you conceive and exceed expectations at celebrations, conferences, events, presentations, or trade shows.

11. Sell me your product/service.

I’ll help you excavate, express and illuminate your difference so audiences can find your brand, event, storefront or website without a flashlight.

Are you ready to not be the best kept secret in your industry, marketplace and neighborhood?

Let’s show your clients that the perfect gifts are your business services and expertise – gift wrapped or served on a platter when and where they need or want it.

12. How can people get in touch with you? What’s your website/Contact information?

Quickest ways are via our business mobile (845) 545-2611 or on social media,
