Tell us your name and a little about yourself.
Tiffany Ann Beverlin I am the CEO/Founder of DreamsRecycled
What exactly does your company do?
My company DreamsRecycled.com helps divorcees recycle their life after divorce. We have resources, community, articles and even the only marketplace in the world, selling items from divorce. We are a one-stop divorce shop for any man or women who need support.
What were the biggest challenges you have faced and how did you overcome them?
Explaining in our marketing that even though we do not advocate divorce, we truly believe and advocate that your divorce in a positive way, allow for both you, your ex and children to move on to new happier lives.
What piece of advice do you wish someone had given you at the start of your career?
That it wouldn’t be easy. Entrepreneurialism isn’t for the faint of heart or those who are afraid to fail. The challenges will be daily and you will have to even on the worse day not want to give up.
Who are your biggest influences and people you admire and why?
I really think Sara Blakely, Bethenny Frankel and Barbara Cochran are positive and inspirational female entrepreneurs, they all much like me took the path least expected. I also think we need more female business and thought leaders, to influence the new generations of smart women.
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are?
I am very grateful to my first investor, I think it takes a certain kind of person with vision to be the first to invest in a new and unknown company and first of its kind concept. I think not just the financial piece, but the belief my investor had in my concept and myself really is what I am most grateful for.
What do you see as your greatest success in life?
I think just the fact that I am a female CEO and founder is something to be proud of. We account for less than 5% of tech companies. It is certainly not what anyone would have thought I was capable of, during my 12 yrs as a stay at home mother. I have no business or tech background, I am 100% self-taught.
