Woman Crush Wednesday #WCW
Since I first started Backbone America as a business, I’ve met some amazing women. Some of these women have reached the status I’d like my business to be one day. Others have started their business with a fearless passion that’s completely foreign to the well-planned, highly structured boxes I tend to live in. The women I meet inspire me. I’m sharing these women with you.
On Wednesdays, I’ll be doing a version of Woman Crush Wednesday. A little about Woman Crush Wednesday. It originated on twitter with the hashtag #womancrushwednesday. The hashtag is use to highlight attractive or admired women. At Backbone America, we admire women who have what it takes to run successful businesses. I’ll be conducting interviews with this woman, so you can form your own crush on these awesome women.

BA: Tell us about the moment you decided to become a business owner?
V: I wanted to pursue my passions and stay at home with my son after maternity leave. The month before I was scheduled to return to work, I decided to start In Veronica’s Corner LLC.
BA: What was your first big win that made you think, yes! I’m on the right track?
V: My biggest win was landing my 1st baby product sponsorship. Receiving my 1st payment for my blogging and social media campaign services let me know I was on the right track.
BA: What’s was the biggest challenge you had to overcome to get to where you are today?
V: My biggest challenge was believing in myself in the beginning when I wasn’t getting the traction I wanted. I second guessed myself so many times, but I stuck with it and am glad I did.
BA: How did you overcome that particular challenge?
V: I took 1 day “treat yourself” breaks when I felt overwhelmed as well as sought encouragement from supportive friends and family. My friends and family helped encourage me not to give up.
BA: What’s the best advice you received when growing your business?
V: The best advice I received was to network with other business owners in my industry. Not only to network, but do collaboration projects. That strategy helped spring board my business.
BA: What advice would you like to share with other entrepreneurs?
V: As far as my advice, when I started my businesses just 6 months ago I had absolutely no experience in creating websites, blogging, creating high sales converting marketing strategies, or growing and translating a social media following into a real customer base.
What helped me obtain success fast was a strong desire, discipline, and perseverance to change my life. If I can do it, so can you!
BA: Who has been your greatest source of inspiration and why?
V: My greatest source of inspiration is my mother. Although she is not an entrepreneur, she endured many hardships to take care of me and my brothers and sisters. When I need to push myself to work harder or persevere, I think about her strength and can do attitude.
