What was the inspiration behind starting GlambitousIAM?
After several years as an entrepreneur, I wanted to create a platform that would help other women visionaries profit from their passions and achieve the recognition they deserve as an expert in their industry. www.TheGlamCEO.com has become the Amazon for women business owners and offers a number of profitable programs, media services, business books and event speaking opportunities.
How did you get started? What steps did you take to launch your business?
Before Glambitious was created, I started a boutique PR Agency, Lillie Mae PR in Atlanta and this is where I learned a lot about operating a successful business. The first steps in launching the Glambitious brand were, getting a website, building a strong social media following and hosting live events. Next, I started to add courses, Ebooks and other impactful items to www.TheGlamCEO.com.
Can you tell us about your role on “Love is Blind”? Love Is Blind was a reality-based series on Netflix, where about 30 singles were cast to go on blind dates in hopes of finding true love. It was quite a fun experience and I was excited to see some of my castmates actually get married on the show! Although I didn't find love on the show, I was inspired to release a new Ebook called "Dear Singlepreneur" to help single entrepreneurs thrive during their single season!
