Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in home care but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Erin Mahoney, Founder of Unscrambled By Erin, LLC., located in Atlanta, GA, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
Unscrambled By Erin, LLC is a professional organizing business that focuses on the mental health benefits of being organized. I work with people who are overwhelmed and need a little help getting their homes under control.
Tell us about yourself
My motivation for doing what I do has the ability to change someone's life. Every time a client tells me that the work we've done has reduced their stress level or made their life easier, I know I'm in the right business.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
I started Unscrambled with a selfie for a headshot and a rough idea, and two years later, I have a polished business. I've grown as an organizer and a business owner, and I'm proud to look back and see how far I've come.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
I started my journey without any real experience running a business, and I had to figure things out as I went along. My education in psychology did not teach me what an LLC is!
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
My top three tips for people starting their own business are:
- Don't be afraid to ask for help.
- Be careful how you invest in marketing.
- Embrace imperfection and even failure.
