How her last employer became her first client!
Dr. Monikah Ogando didn’t enter the entrepreneurial world on purpose. She was let go from her job after she had created powerful trainings for her employer that increased the bottom line tremendously. She took the content she’d created (there was no agreement with the employer that made the materials theirs) and set herself up as their consultant to continue doing those trainings for them. She expanded her reach and built a business helping other business owners increase their bottom line. It goes to show that your hard times can actually be blessings in disguise, the doors that open up to new opportunities.

The power of getting yourself involved in a like-minded community.
The entrepreneurial path is not an easy one. Many people don’t understand it. Many people will oppose you on your journey. For those reasons it’s vital that you surround yourself with people who are on the same path and seeking the same things. That like-minded community can be the thing that sustains you when nothing else will. On this episode of the New Superwoman Entrepreneur, Dr. Monikah Ogando shares how vital this aspect of being a business owner is and how you can find the right people to support you and surround yourself with. It’s a powerful and practical point you can use today!
Diversifying income streams as a way to safeguard your business.
Imagine that you were able to sell your products directly through Facebook. That would be a powerful avenue through which you could reach the exact people who need and want what you have to offer. But it wouldn’t be wise to have Facebook as your ONLY source of revenue. Why? Because Facebook owns their platform and can make changes that impact your income any time they want. You’re too dependent on that one source of income. Dr. Monikah Ogando says that one of her biggest power moves was to diversify her streams of income. It not only brought more income into her business but also provides her a safeguard so that if one stream changes or dries up, others can take up the slack until she can reorient and make adjustments. Find out more about creating your own varied streams of income on this episode.
