Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Denise Leigh, Founder of Business Ed With Denise Leigh, located in Morgan, PA, USA.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

I sell business education resources and business education project lesson plan files to high school business education teachers.

Tell us about yourself

I have been a high school business teacher for over 25 years. I started creating my own resources because business education textbooks are not engaging for my students and are often outdated. I find motivation in creating resources to make the business class relevant, real-world, and rigorous!

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

My biggest achievement as a business owner is that when my resources are sold in over 40 countries and used by hundreds of thousands of business students globally. I sought to make an impact in the business education world. Mission accomplished!

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

To have a work-life balance is the most difficult thing about being a working teacher and business owner.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Always keep your audience and ideal customer in mind.
  2. Focus on how best to serve your target market.
  3. Serve with purpose!

Where can people find you and your business?
