Host: Nicole Culver, NicoleCulverblog.com
Hi, I'm Nicole. Founder of Blissful Eats and host of the Blissful Bites Podcast. I blogged for years before I gained any traction or knew how to provide the value my ideal clients were looking for. My blog was more of a personal project than a profitable plan for success. It wasn't until I invested my time and my resources into professional development that I learned how to turn my hobby into a business.
I know, firsthand, the correlation between professional learning and meaningful growth in my business. And it all started with a blog! The more I tweaked and implemented new strategies, the more I learned about how to focus on the few key tasks that truly make or break a successful blogging business. Even better? The more my business grew, the more clearly I could see my sweet spot for serving my audience and, in February, I started the Blissful Bites podcast to go deeper with the real strategies and stories my audience was dying to hear. On the podcast, I share real stories from entrepreneurs who have created and found their own unique success.
I’ve taken everything I’ve learned from building Blissful Eats, launching the Food Entrepreneur summit (from idea to 200 tickets sold in 21 days), interviewing over 100 successful women food entrepreneurs and channeled into a comprehensive 30 day launch program to showcase your unique skills and how that translates into building your audience and your income.
