episode 67: #OnTheRise, the reality behind year one of business with Veronica Grant

Veronica Grant Blair Badenhop Brand Yourself

Introducing #OnTheRise!

I’m really excited to share that today’s episode marks the beginning of a brand new series called #OnTheRise.

Since starting the show, I’ve been wanting to have conversations with early stage entrepreneurs who are experiencing significant growth and success in their businesses.

Because I thought it might be helpful for you to learn how they did it and what strategies they’ve implemented that have really worked for them.

So, #OnTheRise was born, and you can expect these conversations to be peppered in between the regular episodes. If you’re a fan of this idea, let me know by sending me a DM on Instagram @blairbadenhop or an email at [email protected].

First up, we have Veronica.

Why she’s amazing:

Veronica is a Love-Life Coach for smart, successful women who feel like they have it all—except love. Through her binge-worthy podcast—Love-Life Connection, free challenges, and coaching programs, she’s here to shake up how you find love, even in our swipe right, swipe left world. Her expertise has been featured in O Magazine, Bustle, Your Tango, Elephant Journal, and more. And she’s a graduate of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.

In our conversation, she shares:

  • Why she felt really lost in the first year of business and the mistakes she made along the way that kept her from getting clients and gaining traction
  • Why she took a massive leap of faith and invested in a business coach and how this decision helped her finally figure out what she wanted to be known for and specialize in
  • Her biggest defeats along the way and the role persevering and moving forward anyway played in her success
  • Why spending hours interviewing her target audience was the secret to nailing her message and building a steady stream of clients
  • One of her go-to marketing strategies for building her super engaged community and converting leads into customers
  • And so much more!
