We had the honor of being featured on FemFounder Stories!
FemFounder’s mission is to help “women entrepreneurs plan, launch, and scale their businesses.”
Starting a business isn’t the easiest thing to do. It requires knowledge of a lot of different areas as well as the motivation to do so. And as mentioned in the article, mindset is a big portion of those who are successful vs those who aren’t.
Just to get you started, we are reprinting three of the questions below.
What inspired you to start your business?
From a young age, I was always fascinated by powerful women such as Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton; partly because they had ties to Seneca Falls, NY, and I live close to there. I admired their determination in the face of adversity. During the pandemic, I found I had more time on my hands, so I started listening to the Flourish and Thrive podcast which has tips and tricks about running your own jewelry business. I probably listened to over 50 episodes and was inspired by jewelry designers who took the leap of a traditional day jobs into owning their own businesses.
What’s your favorite business tool or resource? Why?
With a math background, one of my favorite business tools is actually Wave Accounting. It is very easy to use and I can access the reports at any time. It makes managing the finances a breeze and I always know the status of the accounts.
What’s your best piece of advice for aspiring and new entrepreneurs?
Mindset is definitely the make or break for new entrepreneurs. I am constantly pushing myself to the limits as to what is and is not possible and most of it is just working on the limiting beliefs that so many of us carry around each day.
