Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in design services but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Marigolde, Founder of Berose Studio, located in San Diego, CA, USA.

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

I design brands and websites for passionate, creative entrepreneurs.

Tell us about yourself

Growing up, I was always into arts and crafts, drawing, and design. I got my degree in interior design and worked at a firm, but I wanted to do something more remote so that I could travel. I eventually was doing some graphic and web design stuff for a job and thought, “why not start my own business since I’m good at it and enjoy it?” and that’s what I did!

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

My biggest accomplishment as a business owner is being able to help other entrepreneurs get established with a professional look and seeing them excited even more about their business.

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

The hardest thing that comes with being a business owner is that you are literally doing everything! Marketing, admin work, client work, accounting, etc. In the end, it’s definitely rewarding, and I wouldn’t have it any way else!

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

  1. Just do it! Start even if you think you aren’t ready; there’s never going to be a perfect time.
  2. Do not give up. It may be a slow start, but if you keep going and doing what you love, it’ll be all worth it.
  3. Don’t compare yourself to others. Everybody has a different journey, so just focus on yourself and your business.

Where can people find you and your business?
