How to Run a Successful Business

Melinda Emerson, @SmallBizLady offers advice and encouragement to more than three million entrepreneurs every week online. She is the publisher of succeedasyourowboss.com. Forbes magazine named her the #1 woman for entrepreneurs to follow on Twitter. She has a 20-year track record as a successful businesswoman as CEO of Quintessence Group, an award winning marketing consulting firm based in Philadelphia, PA. She is a social media expert, journalist, and dynamic keynote speaker and she’s a professional single mom. I sat down with her for an exclusive interview on the eve of the release of her new book, Fix Your Business that was released March 6,2018. For details log on to www.FixYourBusiness.com Q: You’re an amazing role model for all entrepreneurs. Can you tell us your story? SmallBizLady: I was 26 when I started my company Quintessence Group. I knew I didn’t know much about running a small business. I am journalist, so I approached starting a business like a research project.

Then my husband and I got pregnant, and I was immediately put on bed rest with a high risk pregnancy. I went from being the worst workaholic in the world, to not being about to leave my home and Wi-Fi was not available yet. My business really suffered. In fact, I almost went out of business that year. Unfortunately, I built a business that couldn’t run without me. However, when I had six months to sit and think, I came up with a million-dollar idea. I realized all the expensive mistakes I had made in business and it also occurred to me that unless I started educating people about the right way to run a business, they must struggle that way I did. The first thing I did after my son was born, and I adjusted to motherhood, was write my bestselling book, Become…
