Creating Success for your Business + Other Advice for Creative Entrepreneurs


Since I started doing videos a few months ago, Ive been receiving more and more requests for these multi-media types of posts. And I personally really enjoy doing them. So, as part of a new series, I have decided to begin interviewing bloggers, business owners, and designers, as a way of getting you the valuable information your business (and/or blog) needs.

On that note, I am excited to have Tara Gentile of Scoutie Girl as my very first guest today. You most likely already know Tara’s name and perhaps even her digital products, as she has been featured on sites like ProBlogger, Design Sponge, and many more for her business savvy ways and her passion for the creative community and beyond.

Here’s what we discussed in the podcast:

-Creating success for your business

-Establishing yourself as an authority in your niche

-Advice for creative entrepreneurs

-How to land guest posts on larger and smaller blogs

-And more

Listen to the 30 minute interview now…

Great podcast. I enjoyed it a whole lot. I’m a huge fan of Tara + here message. There is something about it that just makes me go: “I get it… I totally get it”. It clicks + connects me immediately + that is very refreshing to find now days.

By the way loving this new series, I can’t wait to hear more!

That’s wonderful Mayi. So glad you enjoyed the podcast. And yep, I know exactly what you mean. Tara has a great way of saying things in a thoughtful way, but also a way that people can understand easily. My type of girl.

Can’t wait to listen to it, I’ve just downloaded Mrs. Gentile’s e-book and guide a few hours ago, and seeing her here again makes me think I’m onto something 🙂 Thanks a lot, Your timing is always perfect, Brittni!

Great interview Brittni! You sound so together & calm. I think I’d be nervous! Anyway, loved the podcast. I always enjoy hearing what Tara has to say!

Thanks Meagan. Its funny you say that I sounded calm and together, because in my head I felt the exact opposite. I am still getting use to interviewing other people. It’s quite different than doing a podcast alone or sitting my butt in a chair and making a video by myself. So, I am working out the kinks. But I am really glad that you enjoyed it. Tara always has great things to share.

papernstitch | February 24th, 2011 at 2:35 pm

Well done, both of you. I’m new to Paper n Stitch and I’m heading out to check out more.

Tara, you’re my hero! You’re so articulate and when I listen/read/watch you I find myself saying “YES! That’s it!” So thank you for being so open and sharing so much.
