These are questions that I asked Delilah outside our interview. You are going to love her answers!
What is 1 thing you believe every woman entrepreneur should know?
Women should know how to find positive accountability partners and coaches to help guide them to succeed in their efforts.
When is a time in your life when you went through a challenge or felt like giving up?
I believe that we all go through this complete emotional battle as females to juggle family, clients, workload, and time for ourselves. This can be extremely overwhelming for many. I know it is for me. The thing is that we must think forward and use our emotions to teach us what our strengths are and recognize our own self-limiting behaviors.
What is the one area of life or business you are an expert in?
I help entrepreneurs, coaches, and authors to become visible in a digital world with the use of strategic marketing systems and project management tactics.
What is one thing that you wish someone told you that you had to learn the hard way?
WORK IS IMPORTANT, BUT WE WEREN’T MEANT TO GIVE 40 HOURS A WEEK TO BUILD OTHERS’ DREAMS. When someone tells you that you should do what you love as a career, heed their advice. If you work a job just for the paycheck, it takes a toll on you emotionally — you’ll go through the motions of being alive, but you won’t really be living. Finding what you love and following your dream is the only realistic way to maintain sanity. You need money to survive, but if you don’t have a passion for what you do, is it really worth it?
Please tell me about your family.
I am a single mother of 5, ranging from 2,3,9,13, and 16. We are a homeschooling family, and my eldest has decided to attend public school and get a normal job. I encourage my children to start businesses now so that by the time they are old enough they will have an understanding of how to successfully create multiple streams of income.
What is one of the biggest challenges you have faced with balancing work, family, and taking care of yourself?
I have always struggled with taking care of me because I take pride in being a machine for my clients and children. BUT I am not a machine when I get overworked and experience burnout.
What did you learn from this challenge?
I learned that I must only take on a certain amount of workload. I must learn how to establish rules of communication with my clients, and I must work my business between a certain time frame and shut down for the day like a normal business. Another big step in my business was learning to let go and hire my assistant. I couldn’t make this far without them.
What is one resource that you love (a book, app, service)?
I love Law of Attraction by Michael Losier because his simple guide and teaching style has helped me to become stronger and more abundant. I am an avid promoter of Kajabi for eCourses and membership site. And using Hostgator services for WordPress. Also Zoho Social, for posting automation.
If you have written books or have a blog, what are the titles and where can I find them?
I am in the process of writing my first debut self-help book for marketing called “Undiscovered Authors”.
