Our Story

We met in college full of aspirations and big dreams. Then life happened.

We found ourselves in our 20s unmotivated, unfulfilled, and working jobs that we hated. We would often converse on our girl trips and moments of escapism from our sucky reality about how we really just wanted to “do our own thing.” We often discussed how there must be more to life than “Livin’ for the Weekend” and wanting a 6-month vacation twice a year from our lives.

We had the degrees, the careers, but we were just existing, not living. Fast forward to two years ago, we both decided that we were done dreaming, hoping, and wishing. Some day and one day were not real. We started doing! We started businesses on our own and learned so much about business.

Through all of the wins, successes, failures, and shortcomings, we realized that there was one common theme…Getting stuck in the start. Our businesses initially struggled to thrive at the beginning due to lack of coaching, mentorship, direction, structure, and strategy. We realized that what we once thought were obstacles were actually opportunities to help other new and aspiring entrepreneurs. We partnered together to transform the business journey and experience of entrepreneurs looking for an escape from their traditional job. Thus, The Startup Specialists was born.

START NOW.

STARVE YOUR INSECURITIES.

STAY THE COURSE.
