We had the good fortune of connecting with Kevyn Germaine and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Kevyn, where are your from? We’d love to hear about how your background has played a role in who you are today?
Kevyn Germaine is a Georgia-based personal branding strategist and consultant preparing entrepreneurs and professionals for the height of their professional success. I’ve worked a number of years behind-the-scenes providing consultative guidance to start-ups of all sizes. I also worked as a finance professional by day and consultant by night to the best in business. Through my work, I package professionals that are preparing to transition from the workplace to the marketplace. It gives me great joy to see others thrive in their God-given purpose.
You’ve heard about successful entrepreneurs who kept their day jobs as they started their businesses from scratch. I was finance professional by day and a budding branding strategist by night. These people know the importance of having a stable source of income in order to have the courage to work on building one’s business. The biggest challenge in managing the best of both worlds is there’s never enough time. Success in business requires more than dedication. You must have a good grasp of your priorities and adjust them accordingly to meet the demands of your daytime employer and your nighttime business.
