Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in career development but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Samoa Blanchet, Founder of The Powerhouse's Playground, located in Tampa, FL, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
I'm a transformational coach who works with those who want to manifest a thriving creative career on their terms.
Tell us about yourself
I started my business after a friend of mine asked me to coach her. Three weeks later, she had turned a little hobby-based business into one that got one of her products into the largest subscription box company in her industry and made her $35,000 that month. Seeing how much more confident she was really inspired me to help more people, and seeing my clients through their transformations is exactly what I live for.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
I'm proud that I've consistently grown as a leader and coach over the years. I'm constantly looking to improve and ensure that I'm an amazing guide and that I truly have become one of the best coaches in my industry.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
Trusting yourself and your creative process is a new challenge every time you hit a new level.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Just start. Whatever reason you have not to do it is something you can figure out.
- Get as much support as you can. If you have to pay for it, and you can, do it. You can't do this alone.
- Find what makes you unique and capitalize on it. That's the fastest and most effective way to grow.
