Entrepreneur Interview Q & A

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

My company, Primetime Consulting Services, offers counseling, coaching, and speaking services. 

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

I have always been a listening ear for people, and I’ve always loved helping others. I have worked as a front line trauma counsellor with victims of sexual and domestic violence, and in residential settings with persons who were dually diagnosed, offering a higher quality of living through behavior modification programs. I have always wanted to have my own business and flexible schedule to serve my family so after a turn of events in my job, I established my own business. It was the best decision I’ve made so far in life (besides having my son!)

3. What have been your biggest challenges?

My biggest challenges change – when I first established my business I spent a lot of money on all the wrong things. I had to turn off the noise. Everybody and their mom had an opinion of what I should do. It was anxiety-provoking to say the least. The second biggest challenge was figuring out exactly what my priorities were; starting a business can be a tad overwhelming, no?

4. What has been your greatest reward?

Without a doubt, owning my schedule and financial freedom.

A couple of months ago my Dad passed away. I was able to be with him throughout his hospital stay, and with my mother after he passed because I am the boss. I will be forever grateful for that. I would never have made it through with a three day bereavement pass; as given by standard employers.

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

I would change the pressure to follow other successful coach’s ‘blueprints’.  What works for one person doesn’t necessarily work for others.

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

Be yourself! No matter how many ‘expert’ opinions you receive, trust your intuition and put yourself and your services out there. The website matters; but not as much as some would have you think. Get off the fence and dive right in!

7. Social Media.  Yay or Nay?

I am a fan – focusing on building my online presence. My business has been doing very well and I desire to help more. I’m now branching out using social media. It’s another learning curve, right?

8. How do you market your products?

The PRIMETIME products I currently sell are power thought cards and wellness jars, which I write and create independently. As interest has grown, so has my need for a plan. I am currently working on this – I have had much success via word of mouth and am ready to grow that portion of my business online now.

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

I currently produce all of the products offered myself; that is changing soon!

10. What is unique about your business?

My business is helping others change their lives for the better; the unique factor is my genuine passion for positive growth. I believe that many businesses can offer the same service, but the delivery of the service is what makes us all unique. Is that corny?

11. Sell me your product/service.

Highly Successful Does Not Automatically Mean Happy

What is change worth to you?

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

Thank you for asking! 

My website is currently being redesigned: www.primetimecs.com

and I love receiving emails at christy@primetimecs.com
