Finally – I’ve started a Q&A series on my YouTube channel.
I receive so many e-mails a day asking the same or very similar questions, so I figured the best way to truly give a quality answer was to answer them in a video.
Actually, this is why I made a video on “Tips & Tricks to Avoid Watery Zucchini Noodles” (which you can watch here.) SO many people were asking me for advice on how to reduce the amount of moisture that zucchini releases when cooked (hence watery) and so I put my best tips in a video.
The second most popular question I get asked is the one that I’m answering today: how did you build Inspiralized?
Now, I definitely didn’t fully answer this question (I could go on for hours and I wanted to keep it to 10 minutes,) so if you have any follow up questions either post them in the comments section on YouTube or as a comment on this blog post, and I’ll be sure to include them in a future video or just answer them.
Here is the original question, from Jodi:
Just want to say I’m a huge fan of all things Inspiralized!! I think it’s great and I love following your recipes and fitness routines!
According to your blog, you started the Inspiralized brand in summer 2013, so a little over 2.5 years ago. It seems like you have done SO MUCH and spread your brand so far in that short amount of time, so my question is:how did you go about doing that? Do you have a business background that gave you the idea of who to contact to get everything going?
I’m not looking to start a brand, but for some people who are, what are the steps to take? You said you first started by buying the web address of Inspiralized. What next?!
I’m just so impressed with everything you have accomplished in such a short amount of time! Thanks!
Thanks for the great question, Jodi. Here’s my answer:
Also, don’t forget – I’m launching our Meal Plan Challenge on Friday, so check back in on the blog!
