Meet eCommerce entrepreneur and founder of Start Your Boutique Jenelle Augustin…
I met Jenelle through the I Heart My Life Mastermind which we are both members. And let me tell you…Jenelle is an inspiring force. This girl puts the capital “A” in Action.
Jenelle Augustin is an eCommerce entrepreneur, business development coach, and founder of Start Your Boutique for the mom who wants to FINALLY start the online boutique of her dreams so she can work from home & make an income doing what she loves.
Jenelle lives in Brooklyn, New York with her husband of 6 years and 3 year-old son. Along with spending time with her family, she is a lover of the color pink, learning more about faith and God’s grace, Shark Tank, and making money while she sleeps.
You can listen to my conversation with Jenelle at the link above. Or get an overview below.
1. What do you do in your business and why did you choose it?
I help women start their online boutiques. I realized that newbies were making it waaay too difficult on themselves. My signature group coaching program Online Boutique Success provides a step by step system to confidently starting their dream business and getting customers so that they can be their own boss and have more time with the ones they love.
2. What is your greatest strength when it comes to running your business?
Able to pivot quickly. Always trying something out… not in the shiny object syndrome way but if it’s something that aligns with my goals I can implement quickly to see if it will work for me.
3. What is the area entrepreneurship where you could grow the most?
Being more analytical. I’m just learning to look at the data and figure out what it all means.
4. If you were to start your business over today, what piece of advice or lesson learned would you emphasize to yourself?
I’d tell myself to be clear on who I want to serve and to create only ONE funnel to start out instead of driving myself crazy trying to do everything.
5. What is your best advice for balancing business and home life or creating intentional family time?
Prioritize your to-do list. What is the most important thing that needs to get done to make you feel proud of yourself and like your day was productive. Do that… then relax and enjoy your family. It might often mean you’re working on/planning things further out in advance so you are not pulling overnighters. It might definitely mean hiring a VA to help with things that are necessary but small tasks that will help you save time.
