Staying Power: How to Ensure Longevity for Your Business

When I started my business 3 years ago, I remember feeling like I’d just won the ultimate “no more working for someone” sweepstakes. My tea tasted sweeter, the mornings were brighter and I could finally call the shots as CEO. Rosy glasses on and ready to rock! Fast forward to today and I’ll be the first to admit that building anything from the ground up is no cake walk. Entrepreneurship constantly serves up whopping spoonfuls of doubt at every turn. So often, that it inevitably makes you think are we really going to make it? Like, seriously? Maybe you too can relate to this…

As dreamers, the stats are not stacked in our favor. 8 of 10 small businesses fail within the first 2 years. And many more don’t make it to their 5 year anniversary. But I know as entrepreneurs, there is something that sets you and I apart from those that don’t make it. We’re DETERMINED to make our dreams HAPPEN. So how do we find the ultimate secret sauce to long-term success?

I’ve got just the thing! Today we’re sitting down with Treat Beauty CEO, Marnie Massie. Having started Treat Beauty in 2002 on a bootstrap budget, Marnie has 14 years experience in what it takes to stay in the game. Her products have graced the shelves of Henri Bendel, Nordstrom, Whole Foods and many more. Genuine, humble and resilient; she’s a shining example of what we can truly accomplish when we are passionate about what we do!

In this class you will learn:

  • How not having money can be your biggest motivator
  • Why a strong key point of different matters
  • The importance of staying in The Zone of Genius
  • That your venture must stand for something beyond yourself
  • And some important insights from Daymond John & Jay Z…ha!
