Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in business development but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Ruthie Gray, Founder of 4KS Enterprises, LLC, located in Gulfport, FL, USA.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

I'm an Instagram and newsletter marketing coach for Christian female entrepreneurs.

Tell us about yourself

I lost myself in the "second half" of life when my children left the nest and wanted to find a new purpose. I began blogging and writing, which led to social media promo, and I ultimately discovered an instinct for Instagram and newsletter marketing. I love helping women build communities of their own by welcoming them into mine. I teach them the importance of networking and casting a wide net to reach potential clients while furthering the Ultimate Message of the kingdom of Christ.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

My biggest accomplishment as a business owner is launching my communities and witnessing student success! Their success is not only mine but the people they help. No matter the field, they're making a difference in lives, and the ripple effect continues!

What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?

Launching!!! It is NOT my favorite. It's exhausting! Yet, I've discovered a method that works for me and find it exhilarating once it's done.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Hire a business coach or join a MentorMind. It would help if you had accountability and support to stay the course and put a fresh wind in your sails.
  2. Set your business up correctly and legally. If you're going to charge, stop messing around and jump in!
  3. Determine how long it takes for tasks, stick to those before adding more, and hire help as soon as possible!
