In this episode of Intelligent Money Minute, we had the pleasure of interviewing Bethany Winston, owner and editor-in-chief of Kidding Around Greenville. Bethany shared her inspiring journey of starting her business and the challenges she faced along the way. As a fellow entrepreneur, it was exciting to connect with someone who understood the highs and lows of building a business.
Recognizing the Opportunity
Bethany’s entrepreneurial journey began when she was a stay-at-home mom, longing to find work that fulfilled her passion. With the advent of internet access at home, she saw an opportunity to create an online business. Initially starting as a blogger, she explored the possibilities of monetizing online content. It was during a local event in Greenville when she realized the city’s rapid growth and the lack of awareness about its offerings. This realization sparked the idea for Kidding Around Greenville, a platform to inform and connect the community.
Starting a business is never easy, especially when finances are tight. Bethany and her husband navigated budget constraints and embraced the challenge. Richard, her husband, supported her wholeheartedly, recognizing the value of her endeavor. Despite working long hours with minimal income in the early stages, their family created cherished memories, exploring the city together for research purposes. Bethany’s story serves as a reminder that humble beginnings and dedication can lead to meaningful success.
Advice for Entrepreneurs
As a fellow entrepreneur, I understand the difficulties of building a business from scratch. It is crucial to partner with the right professionals to guide you along the way. Having a reliable attorney, CPA, and financial advisor can provide invaluable support and mentorship. If you are an entrepreneur seeking financial advice and encouragement, I invite you to reach out. I am passionate about helping fellow business owners and would be delighted to share my insights and experiences over a cup of coffee.
