Marsha Guerrier: Helping Women to Rise
BBC: We are excited to interview Marsha Guerrier, Founder & CEO of Her Suite Spot. Tell us, what motivated you to start this platform?
MG: I was motivated to start the business by the women that were starting businesses and needed a way to find information and connect to the resources that allowed them to grow. As a business analyst, I wanted to use the skills that I developed in Corporate America to support women in my community.
I began with small group meetings teaching on different topics of business that were important at the time. The great thing is that those same topics are relevant today. Seven years later, I am offering online learning, group coaching, and host an annual women's conference where we provide entrepreneurs with the resources they need to accelerate their business.
BBC: Congratulations! Seven years is truly an accomplishment! What does Her Suite Spot offer?
MG: HerSuiteSpot is a business coaching agency that provides online and in-person support to diverse women that are early-stage entrepreneurs looking to accelerate their business.
BBC: Has it always been a smooth journey? Or were there challenges along the
MG: The greatest challenge I've faced with isolation and feeling like I didn't have people around me that understand what I was going through as an entrepreneur. That's one major reason I started my business.
BBC: We love your motto "When we empower each other, we all Rise!" Share with our audience, the best piece of advice you have ever received.
MG: Surround yourself with people at every level in business, not just people at the top. You never know what you can learn from anyone.
