First podcast episode as the “Legal-EASE for Entrepreneurs” podcast! I have a new name and new website!
It all started at the Black Girl Vision Pitch Competition in April. I decided to pitch my company for some seed money and did an awesome job! – you’ll have to listen to find where I placed.
Having to come up with a 3-minute pitch really forced to think about my vision for my company and my brand. I started this podcast just to vent about my own entrepreneur journey and to create a safe space for others who felt alone. But it has turned into something much bigger and I had to rethink it all.
So the way the competition worked is that you had to give a 3-minute pitch, then the investors (the women in attendance) could ask you questions. Most of the questions were “What’s your marketing strategy?” or “How do you plan to use the money?” We were also allowed to include a presentation. With only three minutes, it meant that the presentation would have to be short. This is the presentation I used – it was 5 pages. As I discuss, it was an awesome experience and really was a light bulb moment for me.
Changing gears: I also talk about my recent trip to New York for the Great Girlfriends What Women Want Conference – which was amazing. I got a chance to meet my [in-my-head]BFFs Christina Brown of LoveBrownSugar, Patrice Washington (the Money Maven) of PatriceWashington.com and Tiffany “The Budgetnista” Aliche and got a chance to catch up with Tieko Nejon!
I also talk about how hard it is to be consistent – especially when you have a full-time job and other responsibilities. I get so hard on myself when I miss a week.
Let me know what you think of the new website and the new name.
