Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in marketing but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Isabel Leong, Founder of Bel Around The World, located in Singapore.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
I teach content creators and business owners how to rank on Google and beat the search algorithm via easy-to-follow videos that take the overwhelm out of them in my Skyrocket With SEO course so that they can attract their dream audience & clients on autopilot and monetize via your site!
Tell us about yourself
Full-time travel blogger and SEO coach roaming the world at a whim, I draw energy from being outdoors. An explorer at heart, the world is my playground. I help aspiring creators and brands get the most out of their online presence and financial freedom by ranking on Google faster with SEO and exposing millennial travelers to experiences beyond their imaginations.
Ultimately, my wish is for more people to prioritize their happiness and the time they have left on Earth by doing more of what makes them fulfilled and joyful. I want to offer the opportunity for creators to live the Lifestyle Freedom everyone covets, where they can work anytime and anywhere they want while earning a living doing what they love.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
That I'm able to create lifestyle freedom by doing what I love in the form of location independence and not being obligated to answer to anyone but myself.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
Being your own worst critic. It can be a long and lonely journey, and oftentimes imposter syndrome may kick in where you think you're not good enough, especially when you're growing your business from the ground up and learning everything on your own.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- JUST DO IT. There are a million excuses not to start. Nobody great succeeded from the first try.
- Don't be afraid to seek help/ mentorship.
- Surround yourself with a like-minded community that only lifts you up and supports you.
