WHO IS THIS LADY AND WHY IS SHE QUALIFIED TO TEACH ME THINGS AND TALK ABOUT HERSELF IN THIRD PERSON?
So let's stop that third person nonsense right here because I'm talking about me and it's weird.
My name is Gilit Cooper and I am the founder of The Bannerie. You possibly found me when I was selling cheeky glitter letter banners or when I spoke at a conference you attended. Maybe you found me on Instagram or bumped into me in my home (you might call that home Target).
I opened my shop on Etsy and started selling banners. A lot of them. And consequently I got a lot of questions about how I grew my business. People thought I had been around for years when I had been around for just a few months. I was able to grow my Instagram following by a lot and convert those babes into customers.
THAT'S GREAT, BUT WHAT'S MY POINT?
I learned a lot about my skills. Some things I've always had a knack for and some I worked really hard for, but it turns out that even though I loved selling cheeky glitter letter banners, I loved my brand, and I loved my babes, I didn't love the physical selling of it.
I took some time to figure things out and compiled all the things I love to do and am good at.
PUTTING IT TOGETHER.
I've always been a teacher. It's one of those things that's sort of followed me around my whole life and I've always done it and always loved it. I'm also a creative and multi-passionate person. So I want to teach people something in a creative way that I know I'm good at, something that I've done, but it's not just that.
I want to EMPOWER people, specifically women. I want you to know that you can do this. That something like a solid brand, taking great photos, or styling like a champ shouldn't hold you back. You need these things to grow your brand, yes. Not everyone is born knowing how to do these things, but you are so capable. All these things can be learned and I have all the faith in the world that if you hunker down and commit yourself to learning these things that you will be a total rockstar.
