Tell us about yourself
Hey, my name is Grace, founder of Livigrace Academy. I am a content creator and course creator with profound knowledge of Instagram and over 70k followers on Instagram and YouTube within 2years. My team and I are on a mission to help and guide beginners to grow their businesses and enhance online visibility and sales conversion by providing training, tips, and tactics.
Before starting my business, I was a typical 9-5 who was tired and sick of the 9-5 routine, limited salary and was trapped at the office for 8 hours a day. So I decided to make a change - starting my online business. I put in a lot of effort, trial and error, and learning in order to do this. And I think the biggest motivation is FREEDOM.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Being location-free, having flexible working hours, and taking control of my income are always what I want in my life. I am so happy I made it. And this business is not only about me; it’s also about helping people out there change their life. These are meaningful and priceless.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
Self-discipline and overcoming your own fear.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Take action NOW. There’s never a “perfect timing”; the best time to start something is today, NOW).
- Always invest in your brain first. Knowledge can save you time and money a lot.
- Never give up (it sound cliche, but I do see a lot of small business owner give up after one week of posting on Instagram).
