Hello. My name is Tiffany Domena and I’m the founder of How To Entrepreneur.
Regardless of where you’re starting, whether you have an existing business or simply an idea–you’re in the right place. How to Entrepreneur helps ambitious people (like you) to start, run, and grow a business!
How It All Started
Growing up, I’ve always wanted to be an entrepreneur. Being a good writer and artist seems to be something I was born with. In fact, I went thru majority of my schooling in performing arts schools that I had to audition for!
Unfortunately, after spending so much time around artists, I didn’t realize the peculiarity of my skills, and I also didn’t know how to use artistic skills in the marketplace.
My schools taught us how to be better artists by working on how we illustrate, doing graphic design, sculpting, working on tints, using colors, drawing shapes, and creating tones. They didn’t work on how we market or sell the artwork. As a result, along with many of my classmates, I entered the workforce into a job that had nothing to do with my skills!
Guess where I went? DRUMROLL PLEASE….
I joined the military.
In April 2006, I left for the US Air Force as a Public Health Technician. I spent 9 years in the military, and the whole time, I wanted to start a business. My creativity was raging inside, and I used writing and painting as an outlet for it when I could find time. In 2010, I went to Iraq and met my husband there.
He was a Ghanian citizen who was working in Iraq. We kept a relationship after I left and one year later, I traveled to Ghana where we got married.
The immigration process to get my husband to America was tough. It took us 10 whole months! After he got here, there were legal stipulations for immigrants that inhibited him from working. As a man, he felt really uncomfortable without working, so he was plotting and studying about ways he could make money.
After he got his work permit, he hit the ground running! He took our personal lawn tools and began using them to help others like a mad man! LOL.
After people got more familiar with his character and his consistency, he grew a reputation. In addition to lawncare, they started asking for handyman services, and he did a good job, so the business continued to grow.
When I would get off of work, I’d create flyers, do social media marketing, and anything I could to help the business to grow. I even went door-to-door to drum up business! It wasn’t easy, but we made it work.
In 2015, when my military enlistment was over, I decided to separate. What was a lawncare business had evolved into a full General Contracting Company! Since 2015, we’ve been full-time entrepreneurs while raising two young children in a modest middle-class lifestyle, and the business continues to grow. We’ve been building something that helps others and that we can be proud of, and I know many other people who want to do the same.
After five years in business, I spoke to my husband about my dream to help others start, run, and grow their businesses by publishing helpful resources online, and he supported me as I started How To Entrepreneur. Now, I work full-time to create resources to support you as you start, run, and grow your business, and I hope to offer more and more support to you along the way.
About How To Entrepreneur
How to Entrepreneur was created for people who feel like I did.
- People who have skills but may not know how to use them in the market
- People who are ambitious and willing to work hard for what they want
- People who have the urge to use their skills to serve others
- Those who get confused and discouraged as their building their businesses, and who don’t give up anyway
- Those who are willing to read and ask questions to find the answers they need
- and, for those who are willing to learn and take action in order to see their dreams become a reality
Entrepreneurship isn’t easy. In fact, I’d put it in the same category of difficulty with marriage, parenting, healthy living, or other things that require lots of discipline, so I know you need a push along the way. How To Entrepreneur is where I share researched methods for how you can achieve your goals: tutorials, buyer’s guides, success stories, reviews, and other necessary information you’d need to start with an idea and scale to an enterprise.
Why should you try to build your dream alone when there are people (like myself) who can help push you along?
I look forward to a long term relationship where our connection causes more and more business success! If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to comment on any post or contact us, and I’ll be more than happy to help you out.
