1. Please introduce yourself and brand to our readers:
My name is Brittney Moffatt of According to Brittney and I'm the content writer and social media strategist who helps entrepreneurs grow their visibility, influence and engaged audience through content marketing! I also run a blog that guides women through adulting, entrepreneurship and marketing.
2. What inspired you to pursue this area of interest?
I've always loved writing and I knew that I wanted to pursue a career where I'd be writing. So, starting a blog seemed like the perfect next choice especially since my career at the time wasn't where I would have liked it to be. As my blog grew, I learned a lot and found a job that was more aligned with my career goals. This allowed me to be more aligned with my business goals and start offering services.
3. What 2 professional tips would you share with readers that desire to be successful in your industry?
Network! I'm an introvert so when I was told that I needed to network to further my career, I was mortified. But, I did it. It's all about finding what's comfortable for you and simply putting yourself out there. My second tip is to just do it! I spent so much time overthinking things instead of just doing it. I've been able to get amazing opportunities by just getting out of my head and getting it done.
4. If you could give yourself one piece of advice 10 years ago, what would that be?
10 years ago, I'd be 16 and I'd tell myself to just be patient. I was so focused on what I didn't have at the time. Now, I'm able to sit back and look at all I have. A business I love, a job I love, my own car, my own house, a loving boyfriend, an adorable cat, a family that loves me. As a teenager, of course it's hard to see those things but doing the things that I did at that time helped me get here. So, just enjoy the moment and stop rushing or feeling like you don't have what you need, 16 year old Brittney!
5. What is next for you in 2019 and how can readers connect with you online?
For me in 2019, I plan on scaling my business and matching my current income from my job. I plan on being more consistent in hosting events, doing partnerships and just growing my brand!
