Carly Black of Revival Society on staying true to your message and building connections
Please share a brief introduction about yourself and your business:
I’m the Co-Founder of Revival Society, a mom to two boys, wife, dog mom, and I just moved to Colorado about a year ago. After tirelessly searching for answers for our relationships and health struggles, studying different teachings and spending thousands upon thousands of hours learning, I came together with my mother and sister to teach individuals how to quickly build their emotional foundation to reverse their feelings of doubt, trauma and unresolved pains so they can truly mend their relationships and have answers to their health struggles (emotionally, mentally, physically) through our proven method, Moment to Moment.
What excites you about being an Entreprenista League member?
I absolutely love connecting so the connections that I am going to create is what excites me the most!
What made you take the leap to start your own business?
I took the leap because I knew how important it was for moms to have answers so they could be the best version of themselves for their children – the next generation.
What was your background prior to starting your own business?
I went to school for Early Childhood and Elementary and Character Education. I always had a love for the next generation and the more I got into the classroom and the more I talked to parents the more I realized after my own struggles that we needed this method in homes all over the world.
Did you always know you wanted to be an entrepreneur?
I actually grew up thinking I was going to be a Kindergarten Teacher, but there were other plans!
Take us back to when you first launched your business, what was your marketing strategy to get the word out and did it go as planned?
We were strictly word of mouth for the last six years. About 6 months ago we started posting on social media. Yes, building relationships and connections was everything!
What is the biggest challenge you have encountered along the way and what did you learn from it?
Where do I even begin? There are so many different challenges that I encountered along the way. The main thing is to always listen to what your heart is telling you. Everyone will have their own opinions but you know deep down inside what you need to share with the world.
What is the accomplishment you are the most proud of to date?
Never giving up on our message. We kept pushing and building those connections!
Do you believe in work/life balance? What are some of your best tips?
I believe in figuring out what feels right to you! Everyone’s belief is different and that is what matters.
What’s a piece of advice you can share that you wish you’d known when you first started your Entreprenista journey?
Listen to yourself! You know what you need to do. You just have to do it!
What have you achieved recently that you’d like to celebrate with our community?
After seven years, we are happy to celebrate that we know exactly who we serve and have a message that is very clear and concise.
What’s next for your business? What can we expect to see over the next few years?
We are starting to get on stages, interviewing on podcasts and creating a healing house where we will do intensives, retreats, gatherings for deep human connection and good food and charity events.
