Women In Business-Dapper House Designs

Women In Business-Introducing Dapper House Designs

Introduce Yourself

My name is is Maria Lorena Rife, proud wife to an amazing husband and new momma to beautiful baby boy. Last year, after many years of working in the finance world, I decided to leave my full-time job to be able to stay home with my baby boy. With the support and encouragement of my husband, after I settled into mom life, I began the "Dapper House Design Blog." Home decor and design have always been my true passion. I can get lost for hours (if the baby sleeps through the night!) looking at beautiful decor inspiration and adapting those ideas into our own house.

Tell us about your business.

I believe that making your house into a home shouldn't be a stressful, expensive process but exciting and most of all fun! It isn't about the size or location, of your home but about being able to create a space that is yours, that fits your budget without sacrificing style. My hope is that my blog inspires people to think outside the box when decorating their space.

How long have you been an entrepreneur and what inspired you to start your business?

I began my blog about a year ago, just after my son was born. I have always had an interest in home decor and design and I thought it was the perfect opportunity to take the leap into starting my own business. The flexibility of setting my own hours, creating content that I truly love and working for myself inspired me to create "Dapper House Designs."

What are some obstacles you have faced along the way?

Before starting my blog, my job was in the finance field which allowed for little opportunity to express my creativity. I quickly had to learn not only the technical aspects of creating a blog but also how to market and monetize my content. That along with balancing my time between creating content and caring for a newborn baby is at times challenging. A good family support has helped a lot in this aspect.

What are some things that helped you to succeed?

My drive and passion for sharing ideas to inspire others to create their own dream homes. The support and encouragement of my husband and family have also been a great help to my endeavor.

How has being an entrepreneur changed your outlook in your business life?

Being an entrepreneur has challenged me in so many ways. It has not only pushed me to learn things about myself but also about may other aspects of the business world. I have to wear many hats managing my blog: photographer, marketer, content creator, website developer just to name a few. Each of these areas was new to me before I started blogging and I have learned so much this past year and I know that I will continue to learn as my business grows!


What advice would you share to any female entrepreneur about starting her own business?

Don't second guess yourself and learn to trust your instincts. Stay true to your brand and your followers-if you are doing something different than others in your field, don't change your ways be unique! Share your passion and it will be seen through your work.

Women In Business-Carol Mortarotti-Social Media Marketing Expert




Women In Business-Introducing Carol Mortarotti, Social Media Marketing Expert

Introduce Yourself

My name is Carol Mortarotti. I grew up in Chappaqua, NY, I am a proud mother of an amazing 26 year old son, a former pro tennis player and worked as one of the few women on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange.

Tell us about your Business

Up until 2007 life was pretty wonderful. Then in 2007 I was laid off and I wasn't sure of what I was going to do next. I knew I had decades of experience that should be valuable to companies but due to the downsizing economy they weren't interested in hiring people of my age. That is when I came up with the idea to create an online course that would help others in the same situation.

In 2011 I launched Expert Niche Academy. In the program I teach you how to discover a profitable niche if you don't have one or take your knowledge and expertise and turn it into an online business. I also teach you how to position yourself as the go-to-expert in your industry. It's an online program but I can be hired for one-on-one coaching sessions.

After losing my ex-husband to suicide in 2011 and having my world turned upside down instantly I spent years learning how to heal so I could be a good role model for our son and go on with my life. I didn't want to live a life full of sadness and grief. In 2017 I started a second business called Forgive and Conquer. I help others that have also lost a loved one, or a career they worked hard to acheive, or a meaningful relationship, or they could be holding on to anger, blame, resentment towards someone who has wronged them...release the pain they are holding on to so they can be set free and then go on to conquer their future.

How long have you been an entrepreneur and what inspired you to start?

Since I was around ten years old I always knew I wanted to be an entrepreneur, it just took me a while to get there.

What are some obstacles you faced along the way?

I was told by many (not family) that I would never be able to play tennis professionally because I started at too old an age (11 years old) and then when I went to work on Wall Street, being a woman I was told I would never move up the ranks. I turned those no's into yes's and it motivate me to prove them wrong.

What are some things that helped you to succeed?

My inner self belief system where I truly believed I could do whatever I set out to do, my persistence, perseverance and tenacity.

How has being an entrepreneur changed your outlook in your business life?

I was thankful for working in the corporate world but I now enjoy living the life of an entrepreneur because it allows me the lifestyle of working wherever that may be. I spend a lot of time with my family who live all around the country. I am more relaxed now and take the time to smell the roses.

What advice would you share to any female entrepreneur about starting her own business?

You are going to get a lot of resistance from men and other women who are jealous that you are pursuing your dreams. Don't listen to them and be unstoppable. Also, don't be married to only one idea that will get you to your goal, if something isn't working change the path.

Starting Your Own Business? 10 Things You Should Know...

The journey to become a successful business owner isn't smooth one. It's filled with bumps, forks and unexpected detours.

Surprisingly, most business owners wouldn't have it any other way. It's barge of honor that we proudly display.
That doesn't mean that there have been mistakes that I wish I hadn't made. Not that I'm embarrassed. These mistakes have helped me get to where I am today. It's just that if I could have prevented them, the journal could have been just a bit smoother and less stressful.

With that in mind, here are 10 things that I wish I knew before I launched my own business. Author: John Rampton, Twitter @johnrampton +John Rampton

1. Running the business is always the top priority.

Perhaps the biggest misconception about starting your own business is that you're only focused on chasing your passion. In other words, you're not just going to be making handmade jewelry, cooking on your own food truck, or designing websites 24/7.That's maybe going to consume 15% of your time.

Instead you're going to spend a bulk of your time on developing business strategies, marketing, selling, interacting with customers, and doing administrative tasks like bookkeeping, invoicing, and payroll. In short you're a business owner first and then a web designer, chef, or creator of handmade jewelry. I know this isn't what you signup for, but the sooner you realize this fact, the sooner you'll be able to launch and maintain a successful business.

2. It's about helping others, not turning a profit.

While you obviously need to turn a profit, that's not your goal. Your focus should be on helping your customers solve a problem or make their lives better. You could be an extremely knowledgeable consultant, but if you're just preoccupied with making money, how is that going to benefit your clients in the long-run? It's not. And, you're going to deliver mediocre results.

When I started my payment company Due it wasn't just because I thought it was a way to beef-up my bank account. It was because I was looking for an easier and more affordable way to fellow freelancers and small business owner to send and receive money-a problem experienced. Continue reading...

Once you realize that its not about you, or how much money is flowing into your bank, you'll start delivering a superior product or service, which will attract more customers. And when you have more customers, the more income you'll generate.

3. The importance of cash flow management.

Make no mistake about it. Cash flow is the lifeblood of your business. When you don't properly manage your cash flow you end up spending more money that you're bringing in. And how long can you expect to stay-in-business when you don't have enough money to pay your necessary expenses? Continue reading...

The most effective way to manage your cash flow is by creating a budget and justifying every expense so that you know exactly where your hard earned money is going.

4. The odds are stacked against me, and that's alright.

You've probably heard this time and time again. But most businesses are going to fail. So, what steps are you going to take to at least decrease the odds? There isn't a one size fits all approach, but you should consider doing something like keeping your current job for as long as you can. This gives you time to build an emergency fund, conduct market research, and start gaining some traction. Even when it's to make to take that giant leap you need to hire the right team and constantly develop your skills.

Even if your business fails, its not the end of the world. At least you've gain new skills, experiences and have learned from your mistakes so that you can come back even stronger. To continue reading...

5. Activity doesn't equal growth.

What do you consider growth? Is it all of the fancy features that you added to your product? Is it the swanky new office or 20 new employees? Is it the glowing review you just received in a leading industry publication?

All of that is great. But it doesn't constitute growth. Growth means that you're building a product and adding customers. That's it. Continue reading...

I experienced the same struggles as John. I quickly realized it's not about me, it's all about helping people and solving their problems and making their lives better. I had to change my focus on not be so preoccupied and worried about making money, and not to see every customers with a dollar sign.

Starting a business from scratch as a female and wanting to make women own businesses a way to get their business out there, is indeed a struggle and hard work, but as John previously stated "most business owners wouldn't have it any other way." So do I, I love the fact that I can help someone, build their online presence, through Mobile Apps, Blogs or Websites.

If you are a female entrepreneurs learn how we can featured your business on our blogs and our social networks, we are happy to join forces to get the word out there about your business, talk about your struggles and why you started your business. Learn more...

We are looking forward to working with you and making 2017 a successful year.

Women In Business-Paparazzi Accessories By Amanda Queen

Women In Business-Introducing Paparazzi Accessories by Amanda Queen

Introduce Yourself

Hi! My name is Amanda Queen and a Paparazzi Accessories Independent Consultant and a Fashion Stylist.

Tell us about your business.

What we offer with Paparazzi is an opportunity for women to feel and look beautiful without breaking their bank account to do so. Everything we offer is $5, nickel and lead FREE! As well as our little girls line, Starlet Shimmer for $1.

How long have you been an entrepreneur and what inspired you to start your business?

I've been an entrepreneur for 4 years and truly enjoy it! What brought about starting my business is the desire to earn extra income while doing other things that I'm passionate about. I enjoy music, dance, and acting. Being an entrepreneur has given me the opportunity to freely operate in these areas. Now, I've grown inspired to help other men and women reach their financial goals and dreams, which has been a joy to see.

What are some obstacles you have faced along the way?

When being an entrepreneur we all have our obstacles and challenges. However, it's how we overcome them that is important. Even though I've faced challenges in growing my business, customers, communication, training and more, it's been a growing process. Learning from our mistakes and failures and implementing new strategies is crucial.

What are some things that helped you to succeed?


There are two things that have helped me succeed thus far (still growing): consistency and focus. These two things are very important to override any obstacles or challenges that may arise. When we are consistent with our business, people see the commitment and therefore can build trust and see the passion in what we do. When we are focus, there is more of a probability of achieving your goals and your desired results.

How has been an entrepreneur changed your outlook in your business life?

Being an entrepreneur opens your perspective in many ways. It has been an opportunity to learn more about myself, stretch my limits, step outside of my comfort zone, and have a greater responsibility in prioritizing, finances, etc. There are so many aspects to business. It's very interesting to see how being an entrepreneur has stretched me in my business life but as an individual as well.

What advice would you share to any female entrepreneur about starting her own business?

When starting your own business knowing your "Why" is important. In other words, know WHY you do what you do. When you have a vision in place and passionate; it will take you far. But those who write the vision, passionate about the vision, and remain consistent and focus on the vision for thier business have greater results. So, before starting any business, you need to document your agenda, and run with it. That would be the first part. Secondly, to always offer excellent customer service. This should be the mandate of every entrepreneur. The littlest things can go a long way with a customer.

Where can we reach your products or services?

Women In Business-Believe Beauty Lounge


Women In Business-Introducing Believe Beauty Lounge

Introduce Yourself

Lisa Koebbe Bevan, Owner of  Believe Beauty Lounge and Master Hair-cutter & Master Board Certified Hair Colorist. Licensed 32 years and Owner 9 years.

What inspired you to start your business?

My inspiration was that after over 20 years knowing my former employer and mentor, I as asked to leave upon refusing to sign an unreasonable non-compete agreement. Clients felt that I should have an opportunity to own my own salon and offered to lend me funds to do so. So it was more necessity and opportunity presented than inspiration...that came after this mind blowing experience.

What are some obstacles you faced along the way?

Obstacles that I found (and continue to find) most challenging are staffing...finding passionate, agreeable and teachable employees.

What are some things that helped to succeed?

As far as my success...my present staff supports and respects me, which in turn allows me to produce at my optimum.

How has being an entrepreneur changed your outlook in your life?

Being an entrepreneur hasn't changed my outlook on life, per say, but I liked the ability to have the control to create the feeling in my space and take care of guests properly and professionally (and make my own schedule)

What advice would you share to any female entrepreneur about starting her own business?

Advice...Love what you do and treat each client like it is the first time they are a guest in your space. There are innumerable places that the public can choose, over you, to get their services, so...don't get cocky. Remember, you are not the only one. Little things mean a lot. Listen and Truly Care.

Social Media Management for Small Business

"Social Media is not a media. The key is to listen, engage and build relationships." David Alston

Be Focused

The biggest mistake most entrepreneurs make is thinking they need to "do" every social media network, from Facebook to Pinterest to Twitter.

In fact, many small businesses find success by focusing their efforts on one network where they feel they can successfully recruit customers.

Automate

Plenty of tools exist to automate your social media marketing, including Hootsuite, Tweetdeck, Sprout Social and Buffer. Use them to schedule your updates and see analytics about the performance of your accounts. Another great automation option is IFTTT.com, which creates "recipes" for repetitive online tasks. For example, if you'd like a picture and post to Twitter to automatically be posted to Facebook, or have any of your social media photos be automatically saved to Dropbox, IFTTT.com can do that.

Track and Evaluate

You'll want to regularly evaluate whether or not your social media marketing activities are bearing fruit. To do that, first decide what you want to track--new followers, likes, mentions, comments etc. Then decide on a time frame you want to track. Read more: 5 Secrets for Effective Social Media Management. Author: Amanda McCormick...Continue reading...

Marketing. You've heard about it, you know it's important for your business, but still you may find the task of growing your business and getting it's name out there an overwhelming one.

With all the different marketing strategies and schools of thought out there ranging from content marketing to email marketing, social media marketing, influencer marketing and more-it can be difficult to choose the best way to allocate your limited amount of time and financial resources in a way that'll net you the highest return on your marketing dollar.

Marketing Tips for Your Small Business

"Email is possibly the greatest  owned media channel for brands" Joe Pulizzi


83% of marketers consider email their primary lead generation channel. While email marketing can be a cost effective way to reach new prospects and stay in touch with existing customers, its popularity as a marketing tactic demands that you understand how to optimize your email campaigns in order to cut through the clutter.

The day of delivery matters.

The "best time" to send emails depends on your unique product/services, customer base and content, but there are some general best practices email marketers can use to optimize when their campaigns arrive in inboxes. Based on the email provider's analysis billions of email campaigns, it found that emails sent on Thursdays generally receive the highest amount of opens, followed closely by those sent on a Tuesday. With the exception of campaigns promoting hobby and recreational content, its data indicates that weekends are the least ideal time to send an email marketing campaign.

Time your campaigns carefully

The type of content your email marketing campaign promotes dictates the time of the day it arrives in your inbox, too. MailChimp's data suggests that:

  • Email with recreational content gets a better-than-average response when delivered on the weekend, as do some email marketing campaigns promoting retail and hobby-related content.
  • Hobby-related content email marketing responses are optimized when messages are delivered between 6 a.m. and 8 a.m.; retail-related email content is most impactful when it arrives in inboxes between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m. Both data points suggest  that B2C content may most likely be read when its in the recipient's box before the traditional work day begins.
  • Government and non-profit email marketing efforts tend to perform best when sent on weekdays between 8 a.m. and 11 a.m.  Read more... Author: Kristen Gramigna: The Best Days to Send Email Campaigns and Other Email Marketing Tips. Continue reading...

How to Set Up a Good Mobile Friendly Website

Having a mobile friendly website extends beyond good practice, its a requirement if you want your business to succeed. Mobile now exceeds desktop internet usage and this means mobile users expect businesses to provide an excellent experience optimized for their device. In fact, nearly half of consumers won't return to a website if a website doesn't load properly.

If you aren't sure if your site is mobile-friendly, you need to make sure it is as soon as possible. it's crucial to find ways to convert leads into sales and turn people away because your website fails to load correctly. Customers on the go have their mobile devices in hand and want to be able to look up your business no matter where they are located-and possibly even contact you. There is a lot of competition in the small business arena, so remember that the ability to access your website via mobile is crucial.

Pay Attention to Font Size and Button Size

The font size and button sizes are important to consider for mobile devices. Font needs to be 14 px or bigger. While that may seem large, its better to err on the side of caution so your users don't have to zoom to read the content you share.
