This summer we’re airing a story series for those who need a little break from all the Pinterest tips and tactics, and just need to listen to how others approach business and grew their platform. These are a series of business owners I’ve handpicked that I hope will inspire you (and me!).
Don’t miss an episode of the Summer Story Series! Add a reminder to your calendar and be notified as soon as a new episode is released.
Today we’re diving into the story of Tasha Booth, the founder and CEO of The Launch Guild.
They are a full service launch support agency, working primarily with established course creators. She also has a coaching side to the business, where she helps teach others how to do what they do at The Launch Guild.
Tasha was someone I was introduced to when we were looking to launch our membership site, the Simple Pin Collective.
social justice in business
Our work with her launch team was so delightful, we struck up a friendship and have since noodled back and forth on topics from agency growth to social justice. This is the story of how Tasha grew her business and what it’s been like to navigate this online world as a woman of color.
This conversation is pretty raw and honest. I appreciated Tasha’s vulnerability with me and her allowance of my vulnerability when I didn’t know what to say or how to ask a question.
I’m so delighted to share her story with you.
ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS I ASKED
- How did you get started in business?
- Did you intend for your business to grow to the size it is today?
- What has been your greatest joy when it comes to running your own business?
- What has been the hardest aspect to running your own business?
- Anything that has surprised you about being an entrepreneur?
We also talked a little bit about our conversation two summers ago around racial justice. Tasha helped me so much with perspective and how to invest in men and women of color in the online world.
One of my favorite quotes from this episode:
“Any time that something consistently goes to the bottom of my priority list, I know I need to delegate to someone else, because clearly there’s a reason why.”
Such great advice! I know I have several tasks that always keep getting pushed back or ignored, until they end up falling off the list.
