Today we’d like to introduce you to Yina Brown
Hi Yina, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I left my teaching position in Colombia (South America) and moved to Tampa almost 10 years ago in August 2011. I came through a Department of State cultural exchange program. I was an AuPair (living in mother’s helper/nanny) for two years. When I came I knew basic English but I was a quick learner so I played the “fake it until you make it” approach. I picked it up quick and was talking inter-medium English in only a few months. Shortly after I came I met my husband, Matt. He and I got engaged a year later and moved in together after my program ended in the Fall of 2013. I started working as a nanny for a few years and decided to start a new. career. I was very passionate about interior design. I started working as an administrative assistant at an Architecture firm. I took the time I was there to learn new skills. I was able to find a position at my last company as a Design Assistant. I started working with the manager of the South Tampa Office and quickly became a valuable asset for their team for five years. At the same time I was blogging and connecting with other Interior Design accounts on Social Media. After I had my second baby I decided to resign from my position and started my own company Yina Brown Creative where I help female creative entrepreneurs through Virtual Assistance & Social Media Management.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
It has definitely not being a smooth road. I moved to the US with $250 in my pocket and not knowing English. It was hard but it was all worth it. Finding my niche and what I truly love to do. I love this phase of my life and being able to help other women grow their business while staying home with my babies and working during my free time.
Great, so let’s talk business. Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I work with female creative entrepreneurs and with those in the motherhood industries. My goal is to help women feel less overwhelmed by taking on those tasks that prevent them from focusing on what’s most important. I offer Social Media Management and Virtual Assistance Services. As a Social Media Manager I create a strategy to help my clients connect with their ideal audience. I then implement it by creating monthly calendar with graphics and captions for a cohesive feed. I love helping people achieve their dreams! I’m a fast learner with a hunger for broadening my skill set and the ability to see the big picture and get to work. By outsourcing Administrative and Social Media Tasks, my clients are: Reducing labor costs of hiring an employee Increasing Productivity. I work at times when my brain is most efficient. Increasing Time Flexibility. I’m available to work lower hours. i.e. 10-15 hrs a week.
