Entrepreneur Interview Q & A

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

Rome Bodies, LLC. I focus on success and personal and financial freedom for women. Empowering women to make changes and do what they want, whether it’s body, mind, career, or relationships. It’s about self-empowering women.

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

When I started, I had struggled with lack of confidence, low self esteem, self-consciousness. I struggled with my own body issues, and whatever wounding I had experienced told me that if I achieved “X” or did “X”, then I would be lovable.

I had personally struggled with addiction, coming from a lot of dysfunction, and I wanted to alter my reality. I wanted to numb out feelings, and not feel what I felt. If I took away other substances, food and body image became an issue. Those issues with food and body image remained. As I got into recovery, I realized I needed to understand and really inhabit my body. Eventually, my focus turned to financial freedom for women, because I see that as another current barrier for women.

3. What have been your biggest challenges?

My father committed suicide when I was 6. My mom tried to commit suicide when I was 15. I found her, and she was in a coma for weeks. Statistics show that if one parent commits suicide, you have a 65% chance, and if both, it’s an 80% chance. She was beautiful, and troubled. My mother actually died at age 54 of a heart attack, and I had to learn to love life, and to break that legacy.

Addiction was a big challenge.

I went through several years of fertility treatments, and didn’t end up having a child.

The challenge of how to connect to the world, and stay connected without having a family.

All of these experiences ignited in me an absolute passion for the truth.

4. What has been your greatest reward?

Getting to a place where I’m comfortable in my own skin. That most of the time, I feel good about myself. That I am passionate about life, and feel good about life.

That I came from the darkness, and am becoming more of the light, and helping to ignite that light in other women to help them be free to be who they really are, and so that they can fully embrace who they are. To see the chains and shackles and the baggage just drop away is a glorious thing.

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

Women buying into and being manipulated by the patriarchy and being so hard on themselves.

Also the way that we learn. Learning is taught as “good” and “bad”, as opposed to learning going from a ‘not knowing’ to a ‘knowing’ state. And not being scorned for having different views.

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

Get really clear on what you want to do. What is it that you’d really love to do? Not what you think you should do, not what you think will make you money. Figure out what it is that you would love to do.

7. Social Media. Yay or Nay?


8. How do you market your products?

Just Facebook, I don’t have a list, I don’t have a website, and my business has been rocking it. I believe that I speak from my truth and my soul.

I’m working on the website.

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


10. What is unique about your business?

The incredibly varied skill set that I bring, and the amount of years that I have. And for me, I am dedicated, and am so committed to my clients. I’ve always believed in over-delivering. I create a safe, sacred space.

11. Sell me your product/service.

I deliver personal success and freedom starting with the area that is most troubling for you. Through that, getting to what you really want to do, with work, and helping you go create or succeed in that business.

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