Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in marketing but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Hannah LaRose, Founder and CEO of LaRose & Co., located in Saint Louis, MO, USA.

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

We're a boutique, results-driven email & SMS marketing agency for eCommerce brands.

Tell us about yourself

My husband and I launched an eCommerce store, Delirious By Design, in 2015, and we've never looked back. My family and the excitement of what's possible keep me motivated (most days).

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Six years later, my very first client is still with me!

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

At the end of the day, everything is your problem.

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

  1. You'll never feel ready - clarity comes from doing. Just start.
  2. Get a mentor - someone who's been where you want to go.
  3. It's a lot easier to start something on the side when you don't have to rely on it for income.

Where can people find you and your business?
