Welcome to Episode 46 of Dreams Inspire Reality Podcast!

Arion Long is the Founder and CEO of Femly, a tech-based menstrual hygiene company that aims to provide healthier alternatives to toxic menstrual care products including tampons, panty liners, menstrual pads, and other body care products. Since launching in 2015 with a fabulous subscription service, it expanded to reach thousands of monthly shipments and are in the patent & development phase of manufacturing proprietary menstrual products that will change and have a great impact on society.

Arion is also a speaker and a coach who has gained thousands in funding and won lots of pitching competitions including the Grow Your Biz Contest in New York on November 8. The competition awarded her $25,000 and access to individual coaching. Arion now hopes to reach and help more women in need around the world.

Arion speaks on her stillbirth in May 2017 that surprisingly after 15 days, she got out of bed to attend a pitch competition to secure more funding for Femly and won.  She talks about her journey in starting Femly and why she started it, how she decided to start pitching, despite being an introvert, to build her brand, how she won her first pitch competition and became addicted to it.  She then realized through pitching you will not only gain funding but will also gain awareness, leverage, and network expansion. Be who you are and don’t be afraid to ask for help from someone else.

This inspiring lady gives special importance to investing yourself and joining pitch competitions if you feel the need to because there will be lots of opportunities there. If you don’t want to apply, just being in the room and listening and being there will help you to build your connections that can be used in the future.

Also, Arion shares lots of nuggets about pitch competitions including the pros and cons, things to expect when you go out and pitch, the key to winning, what qualifies as a good pitch, what are the things that need to be included in the pitch and what to look for when you are trying to secure and find events to pitch for. We talk about why some people are more successful in pitching than others, what to look for when answering in a pitch competition, pros and cons of payouts, what to avoid, knowing the right things to do, why she didn’t invite anybody she knows during the competitions, tips on choosing a competition through the expenses and why your story is important in pitch.

Moreover, Arion answers few frequently ask questions like why you need to do lots of travel for contests, how to find a pitch competition, do you apply for the same contest if they come back along and how she handled anxiety when she first started.

Welcome to Episode 44 of Dreams Inspire Reality Podcast!

 

Marketing is the key to making your business successful. It brings awareness to your brand, but copying your competition’s marketing strategy is very popular today. How does it affect your brand? How do you protect your brand from cloning?

Audria Richmond is the founder of UnCloned Media, LLC, an award-winning marketing and launch consultancy for top-notch brands who want to command first-rate profits. As a highly sought-after marketing and launch strategist, Audria champions entrepreneurs to stand in front of their brands—UnCloned and unafraid to be seen. With her incomparable formula of innovation, unquenchable creativity and tech-savviness, Audria is a force to be reckoned with.

Audria has left her mark on personal and company brands all over the world, from the United States to Singapore and continues to do so with her elite UnCloned Marketing Membership. She is always the woman who is thinking of—and executing on—a master plan. Since changing the game with her signature system, The UnCloned Marketing Method; a revolutionary system that teaches clients how to build wildly profitable marketing systems and personal brands from the ground up, with proven practices, tools and strategies to go big and stay there, she released three bestselling books in 2017. The books are titled Are You Ready for the Yes: How to Prep Your Brand for Lucrative Opportunities, UnCloned: Seven Epic (Un) Rules for Owning Your Shit, and The Yes Experience.

She also lends her expertise and unconventional, never-inside-the-box perspective, to her digital marketing platform the UnCloned Marketing Membership.

Audria has a background in photography and graphic design before she got into marketing. She uses her creativity in marketing strategy. Audria wanted to be different, therefore she challenged the norms and always wanted to be “the first to do it”, the first in everything that people said she couldn’t do.

Audria speaks about Uncloned Marketing, how she came up with the idea, and when it all started. She spoke on the virtual conference, which is her most recent and sizeable achievement, the difference between marketing and selling, how she deals with people cloning her ‘uncloning marketing’, how she protects her brand, how she’s able to secure her clients and getting the clients she wants.

Furthermore, she shares how she deals with clients who want guaranteed results. Audria tells us what her biggest takeaway from entrepreneurship is, that helps her to where she is right now. She gives advice to people who want to own space and industry, and to listeners who want to become successful entrepreneurs.

Audria believes in making time for yourself to learn and invest in yourself to attract clients. She encourages listeners not to look at failure as anything other than a lesson. “Fail fast and keep moving”, she says, level up and don’t let yourself put in the box, but find keys to unlock the motivation to do whatever you want.

 

“Marketing is fun.”

Welcome to episode 36th of Dreams Inspire Reality Podcast!

Balancing your business career and your personal life is not easy. Both require much-needed attention and care. However, with our latest guests, they set the business apart from their personal life. They managed to run a successful entrepreneurial journey and a healthy husband and wife relationship.

On this episode of the Dreams Inspire Reality Podcast, we two remarkable guests, power couple Heather and Dino Cummings. Who are the Founders and Creator of Curlkit LLC. It is one of the largest Natural Hair Subscription Services for multi-cultural women with curly hair in America. Since in 2012, CurlKit has featured over 300 brands and has been instrumental in helping many small businesses get exposure to the natural hair community.

Heather and Dino share all the secrets and tips of being successful entrepreneurs. They discuss how they started their subscription-based company. Heather discovered there was a void in the marketplace as far as healthy natural hair products were concerned. Upon noticing this void, the couple decided to take a plunge and start their subscription service for curly hair types. Their aim was to provide products for women who were looking for healthier options to maintain their naturally curly hair texture. Along with hair products, they have provided maintenance and styling information to help their customers' transition and grow healthy hair.

Being a pioneer means investing a ton of effort to learning everything since there was very little information out there. They've encountered a lot of bumps and bruises along the way, but they're persistent. They found their market and the target audience. It took them about three to six months to really start to gain traction. They started from 75 boxes a month to doubling every month thereafter for the first year. Currently, they ship out 12,000 to 13,000 boxes per month.

The couple now lives the life they didn't expect
