Questions I ask prior to meeting:
Business/Brand/Blog name:: Aditi Creative International
Who are you/what role do you play in your business?: Intuitive Marketing Strategist
Tell me a little bit about yourself:: I first had this dream to live and work from anywhere, create my own hours, and live in different cities, 5 years ago. I don't know that I believed it would really happen, but I sure wanted it to. After year 3 in corporate America, I hated it and tried to find something more to life. Eventually, I threw in the towel and decided to go to grad school as my 1-way ticket out of corporate America.
I loved marketing and wanted to be an expert in it and around graduation when everyone else was applying to and interviewing for jobs, I decided to go full on with my business. 16 months later full time, I'm DOING IT! And now I'm on a cross country drive, from Chicago to LA, living my life, working on the word, and loving every second !
I am an intuitive marketing strategist and I help spiritual entrepreneurs get confident, visible, and paid so they can deeply impact lives with their gift!
What are the 2 biggest challenges you have with entrepreneurship: Internal negative chatter + feeling of failure when things don't work as planned!
We are at the local coffee shop down the street and I'm about to leave. Tell me 3 things you want me to walk away with from our meeting.: For entrepreneurs? -->
1. Start with where you are.
2. Focus on Done.
3. Pre-sell before you create!!
Favorite drink: Lychee Martini
Name a place you would like to be at right now for this interview (we won't actually be there, but it's always nice to pretend right?): Bali
Favorite quote:: Fortune favors the bold!
