A Candid Conversation With Vera – Entrepreneur & Business Growth Expert …
How long have you been doing what you do and how did you get to be an Entrepreneur & Business Growth Mentor?
Well it actually goes back to my childhood, I sold chocolate bars & shoe polish door to door. It was a super experience because although many people closed the door without buying something from me, I knew that the next door that opened it was very likely they would. I just needed to knock on my doors.
By the time I was 20 years old I had started my own business and opened my very first retail store in the mall at the ripe age of 21. It was an incredible experience from negotiating the rate of the lease to sourcing out products and store fixtures. I enjoyed it and it was need to build something from scratch.
By the time I was 32, I sold 3 of my store locations and closed the other 2. I remember the tears I had on my very last day in our store. I knew how much I would miss our customers, their families and their beautiful smiles. It was tough but I knew in my heart I was on a brand new adventure…. going full time with my business completely online!
Oddly enough, our last store sold in May 2007 and our daughter Tori was diagnosed with cancer in November 2007. So here I thought I was building my online business for our future and really it carried me through the almost 3 year battle that my daughter faced, she is cancer free today and I thank God every single day! We have an incredible life!
It a very specific moment in the hospital room when my daughter went in for a stem cell transplant. She was sleeping and I was standing there by myself, I could feel God with me and letting me know that eternity is here and very real, it was time for me to walk in my purpose.
I knew God had told me to clear my plate and open up my heart to others. My business direction changed instantly!
And here we are….
I’m now coaching business owners to step into their business with a real purpose behind it. It’s not about just making money for myself it’s about what lives I can touch because of my business. As my Senior Pastor John Burns says, “It’s about building for Kingdom purpose!”
I am fully committed to helping people build their business so they can change their lives and bless others because of it with my products, programs, workshops, seminars, masterminds and VIP consulting days.
I love my clients, I wake up every single morning feeling blessed and excited to start the day!
Who are your clients?
I work with many types of business owners & entrepreneurs from all over the world.
photographers, retail business owners, entrepreneurs starting from scratch,
virtual assistants, consultants, business coaches & corporations.
I also love to work with my clients locally in my home office where we can enjoy a coffee together and work on their business & marketing plans together.
How are you different?
I have been an entrepreneur since very young and I know how to create possibilities out of nothing. I keep an open mind and have a very healthy drive to help you succeed. I see things in a way that I feel is a true gift and I use my talents to help you see the creativity that is before you and how to tap into it so you have an increase in customers and sales. I know how to market and generate income and will push you so much farther than you ever imagined. I also only work with people who “get” me and allow me to lead the way, the moment I feel that someone will not do the work I will challenge them on it to get going with it. My clients need me and I am very blessed to be able to make an impact in their lives and business.
What is the Website Biz Series & what does it include?
