Check out her interview…
Name: Robin Ayers Location: Los Angeles, CA Business Name: Its Robin Ayers Years in Business: 4-5Are you a full or part time business owner? Full time Why did you start your business? I began interviewing people who have a story to tell. There aren’t a lot of “feel good” stories that we hear about anymore. Many celebrities are well known in the blogs for gossip/slanderous stories, but I wanted to share stories of motivation and inspiration that people needed to hear. What has been the most rewarding aspect of having your own business? Sharing inspirational stories has also allowed me to be a vessel of hope and inspiration for others. People who get full when I speak my words of wisdom reward me. In addition to that, knowing that my two daughters are looking at me as a role model for starting my own business and running it with class and dignity. Nothing beats that feeling! What are your biggest challenges? I’ve been a one-woman-show, with the help of some great people along the way. The biggest challenge is learning how to delegate to people who have the same drive, vision, and passion for “goodness” that I do. So often, people are, unfortunately, driven by the amount of money or benefit that they’ll receive if they collaborate with you or work with you on a project. Finances don’t drive me, passion does. So finding people who think the same way has been a challenge thus far.
What is the best business advice you’ve ever received? “Follow your dreams, the money will come.” I don’t remember who told me that but I’ve actually heard that many times and I believe it to be true. Do you have a team or are you a one man/woman show? It’s funny that I answered this as one of my biggest challenges. I won’t be a one-woman show for too much longer though. I can feel it! Where do you see your biz in the next 5 years? I’m confident that I will be hosting a show in the next 5 years, whether on a network or web based program. My vision is to be the “go to” for positive news for, not only celebrities, but everyday achievers as well. What advice would you give to other Moguls in the Making? Put your own self on the map. Grind so hard that people will begin to take note of you and pay you attention. The things you work hard for, no one can take away from you.
