“We don’t know what works — we’re in a pandemic! Everything we thought we knew, doesn’t. And everything that didn’t work, now does.”
- Sondra Diggs
As the pandemic economy trudges on, many businesses have been forced to rethink, reprioritize, and rework — but some have carved out space to thrive. My guest for this episode, Sondra Diggs, is a self-titled ‘girlfriend relationship advocate’ who has designed her business around the idea that female relationships are a powerful form of support that should be nurtured.
Sondra is the creator of Girlfriend Therapy in a Box and the CEO of Glitter Me This & Co, a service that offers incredible curated boxes designed around themes such as ‘Bad Ass BFF’, ‘Breakup’, and ‘Beginnings’, and contain items such as sangria-infused marshmallows and witty keychains. A former corporate CFO and CPA with 25 years experience, she now devotes herself to helping Gen X women nurture their supportive female friendships through the struggles of navigating middle age — and now, also the struggle of our socially distanced times!
Injecting joyfulness and personality into the mundane is one of Sondra’s specialties, and one of the biggest reasons why her business has taken off. After redefining the corporate 9-5 image with her effervescence, she’s channelled her personality into her new brand, with great success.
As she says, her approach to life boils down to “more sparkles, less anxiety,” and this is an approach which resonates with her online audience.
Sondra deeply understands the importance of social media to modern businesses — and the challenges in growing an audience. “When you get into the social media world, it’s a different world,” she says. “It just doesn’t open up like that. It takes grinding and, more importantly, it takes consistency.”
Grab a pen and a notebook, you’ll want to jot down some of Sondra’s insights and apply them to your own social strategy!
“I kept saying to myself ‘When am I the happiest?’ … you know that question, ‘If it wasn’t for money, what would you do’? For me, it was ‘What would I do if I was the happiest?”
