She Did It Her Way Podcast Series

After listening to the She Did It Her Way Podcast for months on end, learning, listening, and becoming inspired, I decided to pitch Amanda Bolelyn and ask if she would be interested in following my journey.  To my delight, she responded and said how she had actually been toying with the idea of following a business from the ground up since one of her listeners had asked that she do.  So naturally we high-fived from far and we began a six week series where we explored everything from the Resolute's business plan, to fears and challenges, upcoming plans, failures, and even took questions from the audience! It has been an incredible experience and I have been so grateful to be able to share the Resolute in such depth with such a kickass audience!  It has been really fun to connect with the listeners from across the country!

 

Below are the six episodes that aired on iTunes and Stitcher.  Although the series has ended, Amanda and I have both agreed that we will definitely check in periodically, it's just too much fun!

"Having a higher frequency is important. If someone sees your ad once [they'll] keep scrolling by but if they see it three or four times, they might remember the logo, or the image." -Cordova Pleasants


"When you spend the time to create your custom audiences, you're serving your ad up to people who actually care about it and want to see it." -Cordova Pleasants

"I will have a heavy use of social media and I'm going to be using the 80/20 rule, 80% is useful information and 20% is sales pitch. Relevant information includes: fashion, food, travel, adventure, pets, family and chocolate." -Cordova Pleasants


"Chocolate is one of those topics that women just love so when you combine chocolate with one of your other topics, you're hitting two points and people gravitate toward that." -Cordova Pleasants
