As a digital entrepreneur, finding a support system was so much harder than I thought it would be.
Don’t get me wrong- I’ve met tons of amazing people online since I’ve started, and I’ve loved watching them all evolve and grow their businesses.
But finding a local support system has been another story.
I took my SEO & digital marketing business full time in 2012. I had just moved to the panhandle of Florida and didn’t know a soul there. I tried researching local entrepreneur groups, contacted a few local bloggers, went to a Meetup event… but nothing really panned out.
So a few years later when I moved to Pittsburgh, I was excited to try again. During a late night Google session, I came across Emily Leveson. I saw she was co-founder of a local female entrepreneur group and had also attended The Institute for Integrative Nutrition, so I contacted her immediately. I eventually signed up for the Propelle Rock It! Group and am so thankful I did.
I love having a local support system. As much as I love the “digital nomad” lifestyle and have strong introvert tendencies, it can still get lonely!
I’m so excited to share today’s interview with you. Emily and Kate are the founders of Propelle and are both doing amazing things (but I’ll let them fill you in!). They touch on so many of the same ups and downs we all go through as entrepreneurs, from losing clients and dealing with rejection to staying inspired and juggling a variety of exciting projects.
Let’s dig in!
P.S. Speaking of entrepreneurs, I have a special announcement at the end of this post!
