Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Linda Barutha, Founder of Linda Barutha Enterprises, LLC, located in Cambridge, WI, USA.

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

I service highly successful online business owners by increasing their website traffic with Pinterest! By utilizing the power of SEO, we throw some gas on the amazing fire you have started.

Tell us about yourself

After 20+ years in corporate IT, I've married my tech skills with my entrepreneurial spirit. I can't imagine any other way to live! I love using my skills to help other business owners while they are able to focus on working within their own zone of genius.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Every single day is a new challenge when you are a business owner. My biggest accomplishment is my ability to persevere. This past year I had the surprise experience of co-authoring a book. Such a big accomplishment!

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

One of the hardest and constant challenges with being a business owner is dealing with people. In order to do that successfully, you need to have great self-confidence, so you don't derail from the business that you love.

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

  1. Don't be in a rush. This is a journey, not a sprint.
  2. Take advantage of all the free advice out there, BUT don't attempt to implement everything you hear.
  3. Realize up front that this is your business, so don't feel like you have to simply follow the 'herd.' That will get you nowhere fast.

Where can people find you and your business?
