I am really excited to give a behind the scenes glimpse of my business. I really love and enjoy what I do, and I hope I can inspire you to do what you love. Many of you probably know that I recently quit my day job and that I’ve been working for myself. I’ve been loving it. If you’d like more on that, go here.
Question 1: What’s your two to three sentence bio?
Devin Joubert is a multi-passionate creative. She is a creative fiction writer and blogger, website designer, as well as an Independent Beauty Consultant with Mary Kay. Family is extremely important to me. I love creating stories to change lives. I am working toward agent representation.
Question 2: What’s the favorite part of your job?
I love that I get to sip a chai latte, while focusing on building a story that readers will be able to relate to.
Honestly, I really love encouraging women and showing them how to feel better about themselves inside and out. I believe we need community.
Another thing I really enjoy is having the freedom to choose my schedule. No more time restricted lunch breaks or asking to get days off for things. I feel so much freer and happier than I did before. Besides, I’m doing what I love!
Question 3: What’s your least favorite part of your job?
I have a few of these:
- Not having enough hours in a day.
- Running to the post office.
- Buying groceries.
- Making food.
Guess this just told me I should hire a maid and a person to run errands for me.
Question 4: What are the top three tools you use the most in your work?
I love using Scrivener, the notes app on my Iphone, and good old fashioned notebooks & pens.
Question 5: What business goal would you love to reach before the end of the year?
- I plan on having my WIP edits done by the end of December.
- I’d also really love to reach 800 followers on Instagram. If you aren’t following me, please come join me.
Question 6: What do you listen to (if anything) while you work?
While working, I usually don’t listen to music, but if I do listen to music it’s definitely classical music or voiceless soundtracks.
Question 7: Morning person or night owl?
I am definitely a night owl. I’m working on this post at 11:52pm. Maybe, I’m too much of a night owl!
Question 8: What’s your favorite social media platform?
I would have to say my favorite at the moment is Instagram. I love how positive it is compared to other social media platforms. It makes me happy!! I also love my blog platform too.
Question 9: What’s your least favorite social media platform?
I’d probably say it would be LinkedIn. I don’t really know how to use it.
Question 10: What works best when it comes to marketing your business?
- Sharing quality content to build my email list.
- Being real and showing my life on Instagram and Instagram stories.
- Sharing my blog posts via social media when they publish!
Question 11: What’s one thing about your business that your blog readers probably don’t know?
I schedule all of my blog posts a month out in advance.
Question 12: What’s your top tip for someone who wants to do something similar to you for a career?
Start. If you don’t, you never will. Look at your schedule and block off time to work on your business. And set realistic goals so you meet your deadlines.
