After being “forced” out of the corporate world, Andrea made the decision to stay home with her one-year-old son while trying to find something to do on the side. She dove head first into blogs on social media marketing, but was disappointed after reading so many that didn’t resonate with her. What did she do once she discovered a hole in the market? She created her own products!
Andrea admitted that not all of them were great. In fact, only a handful of people purchased her first product, but she kept learning and continued to improve.
