THE STORY BEHIND THE BLOG
Before starting ladybossblogger.com, I was in the wedding industry in Chicago. I had worked my way up the corporate ladder and in two short years went from being a sales rep to working as the National Wedding Sales Manager for one of the top photo and video companies in the United States. My job was my life and I loved it because I loved what I did. I worked 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, I always had my phone on me and took calls at all hours.
I was blinded by my drive and didn’t realize I was burning myself out.
It wasn’t until my stress level started to affect my mood that I realized I needed a change. Every time my boss called my heart would jump a beat, my stress level would rise, and my mood would shift. I started becoming quite agitated because I felt like my time was not my own. I felt like a trapped mouse, like someone was running my life and I was completely at their mercy and even allowing them to do so, while loving and hating it all at the same time?! On top of that, I was tired of being so far away from my fiance who lived in Honduras…
So I decided to quit, pack up my entire life in one suitcase and move to Honduras!
Unfortunately, it was not as smooth a transition as I had imagined it would be. I had left my home, my friends and my job (which had become my identity) behind to move to a foreign place where I didn’t speak the language or understand the culture. Even though my fiance was with me, I started to feel really lonely and regretted my spontaneous decision. So one miserable day when I was stuck at home feeling extremely sad and frustrated because I had spent all my savings traveling down there, buying a car, and settling in…
I decided to buy a blog with the little I had left to give myself something to do, occupy my mind and help me find purpose again.
I remembered back in Chicago when I lived in Greektown, I had met so many amazing entrepreneurs who were making tons of money and doing what they loved and I wanted to do that as well! So I decided to write about who I wanted to be, a female entrepreneur. I didn’t know the first thing about entrepreneurship and couldn’t afford a mentor, so I joined online entrepreneur forums, created an interview with targeted questions and sent it to several female entrepreneurs to gain insight from them. I started posting their interviews to my blog and learned something new from every interview I received. I realized that my interview series was interesting to other people as well.
When I saw how many views and shares I was getting per post – I realized that I was creating something of value!
I created a sales packet to market my interviews, sent it out to some leads and it came back a BIG HIT! Female entrepreneurs from all over started flooding my inbox asking to be interviewed… and that was the day I became an online entrepreneur myself. I decided to interview myself since I had made my first entrepreneurial dollars and it got 183 shares on Facebook alone! You can check out my interview here which will also lead you to the blog where you can explore other interviews and posts!
In our interviews we ask our female entrepreneurs to talk about their favorite resources, which has become a favorite question of mine. So I decided to expand on it and created a brand new to the blog – the Resource Section, where ladies talk about their experience with certain resources in detail.
