Today we’d like to introduce you to Caroline Reed.

Caroline, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
I worked in the corporate world for 27+ years. I was offered early retirement in 2015, which I took, but I wasn’t ready to retire. I had a lot of ideas, hopes, and dreams for my next chapter, so I took the plunge and started my advertising operations consultancy. I just reached my seven-year milestone, and while every day is scary and exciting at the same time, so far, it has been an amazing journey.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
Entrepreneurship is challenging but so much more rewarding when success happens. My biggest challenge in the 1st few years was the learning curve of business ownership and all the obstacles that go along with it. —going from serving others to serving myself and others—going from wearing one hat to many hats—also becoming the “salesperson” for my company, which was stepping out of my comfort zone since I am more of a “behind” the scenes person.

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know?
