Share with us why you started this company/venture – your inspiration or passion?
Tamara: My passion is helping people. At the end of the day, I want to feel that someone is better off from the services that I have provided them. My company allows me to do that through the things that I enjoy the most: social media, writing, beauty and fashion.
What’s been your greatest struggle?
Tamara: My greatest struggle has been self-promotion. I’m very confident in my skill set and I enjoy talking about what I do, but the ‘hard sell’ is my weak point.
What was your greatest triumph or achievement to date?
Tamara: My greatest achievement is the continuous referrals I receive from my clients. That lets me know that I have succeeded in what I set out to do and that it was received well. Also, one of my social media clients was nominated for an award for their social media presence.
Did you have a mentor or another company/brand that inspired you?
Tamara: I don’t have any other person or company that I look to as inspiration. Maybe I should…
If you could offer one piece of advice to other budding entrepreneurs…
Tamara: Oh wow, I have so many. If I had to choose one, I would say to learn about business, not just about your product/service.Google+
