Oh Hey There Heather!
Heather is a stay at home mom of almost 3 beautiful babies and the owner of She is Social, a social media management company for female entrepreneurs. Heather prides herself on helping #femaleentrepreneurs with their social media thing!
She is based in Boise, Idaho and was encouraged by those around her to start promoting her social media management business online, so she did! With over 1K followers on Instagram she is about to launch her new website. She is a forced to be reckoned with and I wanted to learn more about her.
How do help people manage their social media?
I offer different social media packages:
- One-on-one sessions
- Monthly coaching/consulting packages
- I manage social media accounts directly 💁🏻
What’s the smartest business decision you’ve ever made?
Starting my business has been my best business decision so far! And with starting it, staying true to who I am and what I want to accomplish has guided me along the way.
What is a piece of advice you would give to your younger self?
DON’T LISTEN TO THOSE WHO SAY YOU CAN’T! (All caps because it needs to be yelled at myself) HAHA
What is your favorite quote?
“Gator don’t take no shit!” I’m pretty sure this is from a movie, but it was told to me by a former boss/close friend whom I admire greatly! (@stilettoconfessions) It was told to me at a time I needed it most (pregnant with my first and becoming a single mom). I used to allow others to walk over me and take advantage of me. I am far from that person now, but I still go to that quote when I need a little push or just to remember.
What’s been your most profound life changing moment?
Becoming a Mom to my daughters. This changed my outlook incredibly and helped kick me into gear. I want to be a role model to my girls, to show them how to be a mom, wife, and hustle to follow my dreams.
How do you balance your personal and professional life?
Being a work-from-home-mom has its pros & cons! I get to stay home with my babies all day which is great. I have learned (and accepted) that there is no balance. I try to wake up an hour or 2 before them in the morning to have coffee, quite and get some work done. Usually I work on the couch, next to my girls, while they watch Netflix. But I have also learned to put my phone down or computer away to spend quality time with them as well.
What advice do you have for young women who want to follow their passion but aren’t sure how to get there?
Just start! Even if you don’t know where to start, ask questions, hear the rejections but keep insisting. Follow your dreams and do whatever you have to to accomplish them. Never let anybody tell you you can’t!
Who is your role model/mentor?
My biggest role model, mentor, influencer over the past few years has been @stilettoconfessions, Jennifer. She has been incredibly honest with me, she has encouraged me, helped me and guided me in my professional career, to being a single mom, new wife and now in my new business. I could go on forever about how much she means to me!
What’s next for you?
I will be launching my website by the end of August, which I am excited for! I’m also due with my 3rd baby (a boy) in October! I have been taking everything with my business slowly but after October, I hope to really get things rolling!
