I am lucky to be joined by Liv Conlon. She is The UK Young Entrepreneur of the Year, a speaker, entrepreneur, a leader in the Home Staging Industry & in leveraging that expertise to build & monetize a personal brand. She's the founder of 'Personal Brand Accelerator', a platform supporting entrepreneurs from unknown to Industry Leaders. She grew her company from scratch to the 7 figure business it is today, and she teaches others how to do the same. In this episode, Liv Conlon opens up about her journey. She is a UK stager based in Glasgow. First, Liv started her staging business when she was sixteen years old. Liv says that starting at a young age came with advantages and disadvantages. For one, she felt like the world was her oyster, and there wasn't a house, mortgage, and family on the line. While on the other hand, people didn't take her seriously all of the time. However, by the time Liv was nineteen, she was turning over £1 million per year. It was a fast journey with lots of ups and downs. For a long time, Liv would lie about her age and tell people that she was twenty-one instead of sixteen. Eventually, Liv realized that she could use her young age as an advantage. So, Liv stopped trying to hide it, and she started to address her age to people. It was a total mindset shift. Now, people felt more comfortable with Liv, and they understood that she would bring a breath of fresh air to the industry. If you have massive insecurities, just mention it upfront! Next, we talk about the importance of selecting who you want to work with. It's a challenging concept to grasp because revenue is critical. However, if you are getting bad vibes from a potential client, Liv says you need to turn the other way. As a business owner, you get to be selective with who you want to work with, and you don't need to work with just any person. If you and a client are not a good fit, then everyone is going to be miserable. Later, Liv advises young people who want to start a business rather than attending university. It's never too late to change what you're doing. Passion should lead you in the right direction. If you don't wake up every morning excited about what you're doing, then you aren't in a space where you can grow and thrive. Find motivation from people who are doing what you want to do. Surround yourself with those types of people and soak in their inspiration and advice. Tune in as Liv reveals her most significant failure, the importance of small steps on your journey, and what it’s like to be a female entrepreneur in a male-dominated world. Plus, we touch on some of these topics: Advice for women that feel like they just can never get respect in the workplace. We naturally put internal barriers up. Liv explains how we can work on those barriers. The importance of confidence as a woman in a male-dominated industry. Why we should surround ourselves with people who are a lot more successful than we are.
