Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in marketing services but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Angie Jones, Founder of To the Rescue Virtual Services, located in Gurnee, IL, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
To the Rescue Virtual Services LLC saves entrepreneurs, coaches, and course creators from online stress and frustration by providing critical support, so dreams become a plan and a plan becomes a reality. We donate 10% of the proceeds to animal shelters in need. I also partnered with EfficientAide to widen my scope and availability to successful business owners. This has been an incredibly successful partnership with an amazing company.
Tell us about yourself
After closing my fitness business, I wanted to offer guidance for those virtual entrepreneurs who were just getting started online, a way to bypass the technology hurdle that often gets in the way of creating a successful business. It can be incredibly frustrating when you're a one-person show, and I want to offer support to entrepreneurs and coaches who have an incredible message to share.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Saving entrepreneurs hundreds of hours and mountains of stress each day. To know that I had a hand in allowing creators to offer their gifts to the world is incredibly gratifying. And the relationships that I have made along the way are absolutely priceless.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
Things that you can't control can be frustrating (tech issues, etc.), but you can almost always discover a creative way around a problem.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Follow your passion, not the money.
- Be consistent and very patient.
- Do your best every day and have FUN.
