Interview in DotCom Magazine
We feel so very honored to have recently been interviewed by DotCom Magazine, whose mission is to become the premier platform for CEO's, Founders, Entrepreneurs, Thought Leaders, and Influencers to share their success stories. We were interviewed about the in’s and out’s here at Studio Linear, here is part of our interview:
“Andrea, thank you so much for taking the time out of your busy day for this interview about your company, leadership, and entrepreneurship.”
1. Andrea, please tell us about Studio Linear. What is the elevator pitch?
Studio Linear is a sister owned, female operated design firm. We are based in Maine and Minneapolis and have clients that span all over the globe. We work with start-ups and established businesses in their: branding, package/product design, marketing, web design, and print materials.
2. What is the one thing that makes Studio Linear great?
We are a family owned business and run by a group of very talented women. We are a small yet mighty team and our clients love the fact that they work directly with the owners and aren’t shuffled around from account manager to designers etc.
3. Please tell us what is the key to being a great entrepreneur?
Iam certainly no expert on what makes someone a great entrepreneur but for me, it was finding something that I loved so much, I wanted to make it my career. Finding something that you are so passionate about that putting in those extra hours, that extra effort, doesn’t ever feel like work, it is so rewarding.
4. What is the best advice can you give to a young entrepreneur just starting out with a new venture?
Reach out to others in the field you are interested in. Most business owners will share with you their tips of the trade and that is incredible info to have in the beginning stages. Be willing to work for free when you are starting out, you aren’t going to jump into your new businesses rolling in the big bucks in fact, it takes years before there is even a profit so my recommendation is, do not hesitate to create work for free in the beginning, it helps build your portfolio and gets your name out there. We also made sure to keep our community in mind and give back when we could. We volunteer our time to give back to the community that supports us and our business.
