At 20 years old, I unknowingly started what would eventually become Ninety Five Media
(and we’re still just getting started)
In 2015, I picked up my phone, created a business IG account for my Mentor, and got to work on her digital marketing.
This first foray into marketing, the trial + error, the evolution of the media landscape; they have all culminated into our brand today.
But there’s a lot I wish I knew along the way that would have made it easier.
I know someone else needs this today too – so here goes:
Hearing More “No’s” Is A Good Thing
Most people are uncomfortable with the word “no”. As an entrepreneur, you have to get comfortable with it asap. Listen, move on, + figure out how to turn the no’s into yes’s
Put On Your Blinders
The people who talk behind your back aren’t important. Put on your blinders, block them, and work daily to hit your goals. (this made the #1 difference for me)
Start Investing Your Time
Investing will always be scary – it doesn’t get easier as you make more. Start with investing in your time + watch as you 3x your ROI
There’s no 1 secret to growing your business. It comes down to showing up every single day + putting in the work.
That alone, will set you apart.
What do you wish you knew when you were first starting?
