Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in content creation but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Katie Hawkins, Founder and CEO of Here For Good Films, located in Atlanta, GA, USA.

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

I work in the film and video industry. My customers include entrepreneurs who are ready to take control of their video content or take it to the next level, as well as Fortune 500 Companies who need stories of impact told.

Tell us about yourself

There are a lot of people doing good in the world, and I believe their stories need to be told. That is the mission behind Here For Good Films. Knowing that I am working towards helping others make a bigger positive impact in their communities and around the world motivates me to show up every day and keep pushing to tell these stories.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

I love telling people-driven stories - especially cross-culturally so one of my biggest accomplishments is getting to tell stories on our 5th continent this year.

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

As a dreamer, I'm always dreaming about what could be and how to make what is better. So for me, one of the hardest things about being a business owner is never really having an off switch. I'm always thinking about new ideas, more efficient ways of doing things, and new clients to pursue.

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

  1. Make sure you love it - When you start a business, it will be harder than you thought and take more time than you thought, but it will be so much more worth it than you thought! When it gets hard, you'll find a way through as long as you don't lose the love that got you into the business to begin with.
  2. Set Boundaries with yourself and with clients. It's so important to set boundaries with clients - otherwise, you will find yourself working for others all the time and never have time for yourself to work on your business. It's also important to set boundaries for yourself as well - whether it's blocking your schedule or signing off by 5 pm every day, or only taking meetings one day a week. Setting boundaries for yourself will set you up for success in the long run and keep you from burnout.
  3. Take time off. It may not feel like it, but there will always be one more job or one more sale, or one more project to take on. So take time off. Spend time with family. Go on vacation. Enjoy life. There's more to it than working on your business all day, every day.
