Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Kellie Wright, Co-Founder of Golden Hello Company, located in Honeoye Falls, NY, USA.

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

We partner with corporations to help create or enhance their employee and client engagement programs which in turn helps to retain employees and clients and increase their profits. Our gift boxes are the tool we use to help create these meaningful connections. They help to show our appreciation and gratitude towards an individual.

Tell us about yourself

My daughter and I came from very rewarding careers, but the culture in both of our workplaces was very toxic. Over time it became very difficult and stressful to work in that environment. We loved what we did but knew there could be a better work-life. We talked with lots of people and did a bunch of research and very quickly saw that this was a widespread issue and we needed to be the solution. We love seeing and hearing the results of their happy employees and clients.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

We are able to bring our vision to life in a big way. We help to teach people that small gestures really do go a long way.

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

It gets overwhelming to have to wear so many hats until you can afford to hire people to help you. We want to get back to what we love most, and that is to teach others the art of gifting and creating thoughtful and meaningful gifts.

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

  1. Hire a coach to help you with the foundation of your business.
  2. There is so much free info out there; take advantage of it before you start paying people.
  3. Join a BNI group; your network becomes your marketing team and peers that can help you with everyday issues.

Where can people find you and your business?
