So Harli, what excites you about being an Entreprenista League member?
Being a part of a community that elevates and cheers for Women Entrepreneurs!
Harli, how did you know it was the right time to take the leap to start your own business?
While I was climbing the ranks in the corporate world, the pandemic hit, which gave me a moment to slow down and start to delve deep within myself. My journey within myself led me to one word “Purpose.” My goal is to allow others to share their stories which can inspire others to also find their purpose while being inspired by my voice. Which is my I created my podcast “Inside The Bubble With Harli G”: A Podcast for the Superwoman.
What was your background prior to starting your own business?
So did you always know you wanted to be an entrepreneur?
No I did not. Matter of fact, I didn’t think that being an entrepreneur would ever interest me.
When first launching, marketing your new biz is so important! What was your initial marketing strategy?
To be honest, I just wanted to start a platform that would allow others voices to be heard. Marketing was one of the furthest thing from my mind. Once I started going through my branding program, my self mastery coach got me so excited about vision and the impact I was going to make that is when I started thinking, OMG this might become a thing. So no, I didn’t really have a plan, lol.
Entreprenistas overcome challenges and thrive. What is the biggest challenge you have encountered along the way, and what did you learn from it?
At first I was focusing on the numbers. Every week I would go in and check on how many listeners tuned in that week. Finally, I realized that the message of the platform was the most important thing. If I could just impact 1 person every week then I was walking in my purpose.
What is the accomplishment you are the most proud of to date?
That I even started! I didn’t let the fear of the unknown stop me.
As much as we all want to believe in work life balance, it sometimes seems impossible to achieve…do you actually believe in work life balance? What are some of your best tips?
Yes, absolutely! Self-care, self-care, self-care. Ladies, you have to prioritize yourself and you cannot feel guilty about it. One tip is to put a daily calendar appointment or invite and schedule it!
What’s a piece of advice you can share that you wish you’d known when you first started your Entreprenista journey?
You have to be your biggest cheerleader!
Harli, you have lots to celebrate! What have you achieved recently that you’d like to celebrate with our community?
I have been able to release an episode every week so far!! Woohoo!!
What’s next for your business? What can we expect to see over the next few years?
For this platform to continue to evolve. I also want to work with women and help them discover or tap into their ultimate purpose. Becoming a life coach.
