In this episode of the Driven Female Entrepreneur Podcast, I speak with Sharon Brown, the Founder of The Book Chief Publishing House, MO2VATE Magazine, The Speakers Index, and Revival Sanctuary.
Prior to this, she had previously been working in a corporate setting where she was abruptly pushed aside for a promotion. She thought carefully about how she was regarded at work and as a result, made the decision right there and then that she would do everything in her power to make sure that she felt valued, if not by them then by herself.
Sharon created an events agency, due to her prior experience in this field. However, two years in, she felt that it wasn't bringing her the happiness she had hoped for. She then came to the conclusion that going online and beginning to have online platforms would be the best course of action since that is where the future was headed. She realised that there was something lacking in the extremely competitive networking environment where many women feel intimidated. So, in order to foster and inspire women to simply cooperate, she launched Revival Sanctuary in 2018, her first-ever online platform, with the tagline "Collaboration above Competition."
Now, she currently operates four online platforms with the single purpose of assisting, bolstering, and enhancing the authority and credibility of small businesses. She manages these projects thanks to her focus on making each one a collaborative project.
Don't miss this episode to discover about Sharon's journey and her forward-thinking start-up concepts for joint ventures that help business owners, authors, and public speakers obtain the most visibility possible in their areas of expertise.
When working collaboratively, find the right people. People who are as passionate about a project or goal as you are. -Sharon Brown"
In this value-packed episode you’ll learn:
- How to know when it's time to leave a project and evolve.
- A manageable way to identify which idea is good when doing a start-up.
- The importance of finding out what your audience wants.
- Why it’s not good to automate everything in your business.
- How to work collaboratively to maintain a healthy work-life balance.
Automation is helpful, but I believe personalisation is necessary since it's the connections and relationships with your customers that matter. -Sharon Brown"
Sharon Brown is an avid supporter of small businesses especially startups and solopreneurs, so it made sense to her to create all of her projects around this. To date she has created four online platforms with one goal in mind, to support, strengthen and build the credibility and authority of small businesses through writing, speaking and publishing opportunities. Here are her current projects below:THE BOOK CHIEF Publishing House, aimed at building authority and credibility for the small business owner as an Author.REVIVAL SANCTUARY a global community where everyone is encouraged to collaborate, work together and use each others' services to boost their businesses.MO2VATE Magazine a global media magazine aimed at micro and small business owners.
