Check out her story…
Name: Amber Wright
Location: Carson, CA
Business Name: Talk to Amber Media
Years in Business: 2
Are you a full or part time business owner?
Currently I teach college courses as an adjunct professor, so technically I’m a part time business owner. Despite that, however, I think when you run a business it’s always full time because you likely work on it in some respect on a daily basis – even though how much time you spend on it may vary.
Why did you start your business?
I started Talk to Amber Media because I love helping other bloggers and entrepreneurs grow their businesses by teaching them how to become fearless speakers and effective communicators. There has been a void in the communities I am apart for that kind of assistance, so my business as a public speaking and communication coach is there to fill it.
What has been the most rewarding aspect of having your own business?
What has been the most rewarding for me thus far on a professional level is seeing the growth in my clients as their confidence builds and knowing that my assistance contributed to that. On a personal level, I’d say it’s been the reality that I’m following through with pursuing my dreams and building the life I desire for myself and my family through entrepreneurship.
What are your biggest challenges?
My biggest challenges are the huge learning curves that come with being an entrepreneur. Nobody walks into it fully informed on what it takes to succeed. Much of it is “on-the-job” training. The process of learning and figuring it out as I go is difficult but highly beneficial at the same time.
What is the best business advice you’ve ever received?
The best advice I’ve ever received came from my business mentor, Lamar Tyler. In a nutshell, his advice was to stop over thinking things and just create, build, and succeed.
Do you have a team or are you a one man/woman show?
Table for one, please! My husband is my IT guy, and helps me with many things on the back end and technical side of my business. Other than that…it’s all me, my one brain, and two hands.
Where do you see your biz in the next 5 years?
I see my business in the next five years as having grown to a healthy roster of notable clients, thriving financially, and something that I will still be in love with doing every day.
What advice would you give to other Moguls in the Making?
The number one piece of advice I would tell other Moguls in the Making is to remember that there’s no race in entrepreneurship. Build your business in a way that works for you and your life and do your best not to compare yourselves to others. Remember that there’s only one you and that the work you do is valuable.
