Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Beth Knaus, Founder of That's A Spade Copywriting Services, located in Norwood, MA, USA.

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

I'm a copywriter and brand messaging consultant. I work with confident female entrepreneurs ready to use their unique voices and dynamic perspectives to differentiate themselves in the marketplace. They need a writer to help them show up authentically and professionally.

Tell us about yourself

I have always been a writer and wrote personally for years. My original background is in marketing, sales, and business management. Once my three kids got into college, I shifted into writing for others who needed help writing content true to their brand that reached their audience.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

After starting this business in March 2020, I have not been without work since.

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

Pushing through on the days that you don't have the energy or the confidence. You still have to show up and wear all the hats.

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

  1. You do not need a website on day one.
  2. Don't get swayed by what everyone else is doing or saying. Stay true to your goal, vision, and voice.
  3. Be generous - with your time, your support, and your referrals.

Where can people find you and your business?
