Meet Alandria Lloyd, a serial entrepreneur, life coach, and the founder of the publishing company The Writer’s Block LLC. Alandria and I had the pleasure to talk again and we discussed having a balance in life & business, time management, and the five tactics that helped her businesses grow.
What’s the hardest part of being an entrepreneur and a boss that may not visible to others?
When you are starting a new project or starting a goal, what is the process you set for yourself to complete your goals and succeed?
What’s the best advice you would tell a person who may be struggling with entrepreneurship or taking the next big step for their business?
Advice for those who may be struggling in their business, I’d say re-evaluate your goals and your business structure. Take some time to see what has/hasn’t been working and perfect any weaknesses in your business. For those who are struggling to take the next big step, I’d say just go for it! Scared money won’t make money, so bet on yourself and take a chance.”
How do you practice self-care? What keeps you going when you’re feeling uninspired or unmotivated?
What are some personal and business boundaries you had to set in order to have a successful brand and business?
Personal boundaries was to simply say “no” and not allowing others to make me feel guilty for doing what was best for me. No, I can’t come to the cookout today, I have to work lol. There’s so much freedom in those 2 letters.Business boundaries include being mindful of those I allow to “help” me. Sometimes people will say that want to help but are really looking for an opportunity to sabotage. Discernment is key, so I make sure to discern those who try to insert themselves in my business affairs.“
What are some books/podcasts that have changed your life and why?
Tell us 5 gems that helped your business grow.
What does the world need more of? Less of?
What life advice would you tell yourself 10-20 years ago that you know now that you wish you knew then?
Don’t be in such a rush to grow up so fast, slow down…”
