In this new feature, we interview our students from Pinfluencer Academy on their motivation to start their brand or business. A part of our mission here at Digital Empires is to help new and aspiring entrepreneurs grow their business and we are so excited to share this interview with our alum, Ken Howell.
Tell us more about your business + you!
My business, RemodAssist, is an exciting new concept that combines traditional brick and mortar home improvement contracting with the new virtual world which is currently changing how all of us live, work, learn, and communicate.
Using Zoom we coach our clients on how to successfully plan and complete their DIY home improvement projects. They save a ton of $$$ but have an experienced contractor “by their side” to help them along the way.
For our clients, it’s the best of both worlds. I’m very excited about this new venture. I have nearly 20 years of experience in home improvement contracting. I love helping my clients and seeing how best their homes can look.
What are you most excited about in your side hustle or business right now?
I’m very excited about my business because I truly believe that it is a new niche that could be very successful, profitable, and fun. I’m looking forward to growing the business to see what it can become and challenge myself along the way.
How has Pinfluencer Academy helped you?
I just found Shruti and Pinfluencer Academy a week ago and bought the course a few days ago. Even though I’m new to Pinterest I can tell that this will be a game changer for how I can communicate the advantages of my business.
The course is so thorough and so well-presented that it would be impossible not to get great benefit from it. With just a few lessons completed I have already gained tremendous insights on how to use Pinterest that I never would I have figured out on my own. I can’t wait to get through the complete course and apply all the knowledge that it contains.
Looking back, what would you tell yourself if you were just starting out?
This is the second business I have started. Looking back I think I learned that focus and consistency are vitally important. Determine your goal and stay FOCUSED on that goal daily. Be CONSISTENT by giving things such as advertising a chance to work. Be patient. Building a business takes time and effort.
Where can we find you online and on Pinterest?
