Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in business development but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Esther Bruce, owner of Ancients Gold, located in Las Vegas, NV, USA.

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

Advising companies and clients to show them the best way to reach customers, mainly online. By refreshing their business, marketing, advertising, website, and listings, and by business consulting. I am here to grow their business online through listings, marketing, advertising, and their website.

Tell us about yourself

I've been working in this business for three years after leaving my corporate job. I am motivated by not having to sit in a cubicle all day and by knowing that I can get things done right for my clients.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

My biggest accomplishment is the smile on clients' faces when they see that their business is growing and that they are getting their bang for their buck. Since this has happened multiple times, I feel accomplished every time I work with a client.

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

The hardest thing about being a business owner is organization and cash flow. Organization is key, and since I am the only one, I have to make sure everything is in place every day so that my client is happy, and that can be tidiest. Cash flow is also the second hardest thing that goes with making sure that there is a constant demand for my services.

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

My first tip would be to grow your confidence. The second would be to start small immediately. The third is knowing your potential client and client base.
