Today we’d like to introduce you to Angela Giles.
Hi Angela, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
I got started in my business when I left corporate. I was working in IT for a telecommunications company and was about ready to have my 2nd child. I worked a lot of hours and made good money but it wasn’t worth it anymore. I quit came home started a daycare and my husband was making $32,000 a year at that time. We lived in Southern California. We were 3K in the hole every month so I started doing network marketing as well. One morning (we had $57 left in our checking account), I went and spent it on fliers for the mlm business & went with my friend to the “rich” part of town and put fliers out – thinking I was going to get business. (we had three kids under five now) and I cam home at 6:30 am went back to bed – woke up out of a daze at 7 am and smelt smoke. My garage was on fire. I remember my husband running out the front door opening the garage in the meantime, I had gone in the backyard with the three little boys. I remember yelling at my husband like a banchee saying don’t open the garage door; it will cause oxygen to come in and burn it worse. I am sure that the neighbors thought there was domestic abuse going on…haha – so I remember being in the backyard and the firemen put a ladder over the fence so I could crawl over with the kids to the neighbor’s back yard.
I had on holey underwear and a teeshirt. I remember thinking why didn’t I spend that last $57 on new underwear instead of fliers….all the neighbors saw me & the firemen – ugh.
So everything changed after that. I got serious. I got creative and resourceful. I moved all 3 of my little kids in one room. I hired a nanny for room and board and a small fee. She helped me watch the daycare kids and my kids. I moved my desk and old computer into my laundry room. I spent four months during the summer in there learning how to generate free and inexpensive leads online. My first break was I learned how to generate leads on eBay for 99 cents. I spent over $20K on credit cards on scams and education to learn. But I did.
I wrote an ebook and sold it for $27 on how to generate free & inexpensive leads online. Fast forward several years (19 to be exact) and I now help Entrepreneurs and Businesses (annual gross sales $1 million to $10 million) generate leads online.
I also started a passion project (Everydaywoman.me) during March 2020 (Covid) with my good friend Galit Ventura Rozen – to help women pivot their careers & businesses quickly – we great a business out of it – where we serve doing workshops (give away the majority to nonprofits like the American Nurses foundation etc.) – we also have a FB group of 13,000 women, a large email list, etc. – we have done an Anthology with 51 women in it and we got 6 #1 best selling author categories in 48 hours. We got our first award for this Everyday Woman movement. The Award is Called the Heros of Change –
My ultimate goal is to help Women & Some Men Speed Their Way To Success While Living a Fulfilling Life.
Oh and I also am a Forbes Coach for their Forbes Coaches Council and A Rolling Stones Coach for their Culture Council.
My gift is marketing and sales – I have helped over 2000 businesses do over $30 Million in sales over the years – maybe even more now.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
It is all about keeping a great mindset as you go along the way…
Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your business?
I think what sets me apart is that I am the QUEEN of organic lead generation with small solopreneurs we usually get them to $20K months and with businesses, I can add millions to their bottom line in even 12 months with Lead Gen & Sales Strategies.
Are there any books, apps, podcasts or blogs that help you do your best?
I love the book – The One Thing.
