Her Story with Linda Enoh: PhD and Multi-Passionate Entrepreneur
I haven't had a chance to speak in person with this week's Her Story Spotlight, but her positivity and warmth have spilled over into each of our messages.
Linda Enoh is a mom of 4, holds a PhD and is a multi-passionate entrepreneur running two businesses, so any excuse I might give myself about not having enough time pretty much goes out the window when I look at what Linda has been been able to accomplish.
Like many of us, despite all of her success, Linda has struggled in believing that she was good enough and overcoming limiting beliefs. Below she shares how she's overcome that thinking, her advice for other women looking to start their own business and shares some really good resources you can use in your own business, including her own guide for turning 1 Facebook post into 32 pieces of content! Read to the end to get the link :)
Her Story Spotlight: Linda Enoh, mama of 4, (4 yo boy, 2 ½ yo boy, 9 mo twin girls)
Where You Can Find Her: Houston, TX
What is the best part of being a mom?
Seeing them reach new milestones.
What is the most challenging part of being a working mom?
Trying to balance it all and still have time for myself.
You actually have two businesses! Tell us a little about each one:
I have a travel & tourism consulting business and I have a content marketing coaching business.
What is it like running two businesses? Any time management tips you have to get it all done?
I often switch between the 2 based on my mood. When I want to escape and daydream, I’m more likely to write travel-related content. When the analytical part of my brain is lit up I enjoy writing processes related to content marketing. I try to plan my business around work hours and kids’ naps on the weekends.
What do you do to relax?
I love watching travel shows, preferable the ones about island living, while drinking hot tea.
Have you always ran your own business? What inspired you to take this path versus a 9-5 job?
I’ve always wanted to have my own business because it’s the only way I believe I can truly and fully be myself. I’ve mostly worked in academia and loved it! But it was time to take a break to focus on my own path.
What challenges have you had to overcome to get where you are now with your business? How were you able to overcome them?
Believing that I was good enough and overcoming limiting beliefs. I have a PhD and believe it or not there are times when I don’t think I’m qualified enough to do what I do. So I make sure to work on my mindset every day from reading my Bible to listening to motivational audios and journaling.
What are 2 or 3 of the main keys to your success?
Planning – Perseverance – Wanting to help others.
If you didn’t already talk about this in the previous question, what benefits have you seen from investing in yourself/your business?
It’s what started it all for me. Without it, I wouldn’t have had the business foundation that I have now nor the confidence to move forward and push myself month after month. If I hadn’t invested in myself/my business I don’t think I would have been able to clearly know what I was doing and making consistent sales.
Where do you see your business in the next 12 months?
I want to merge my 2 businesses in a way that makes sense to me by focusing on international business retreats for female entrepreneurs.
What advice would you give to other women looking to start their own business?
You don’t have to do it all! Focus on getting clarity on what you do and who you do it for, get a few sales, and then and only then, focus on the technicalities of websites, funnels, webinars, etc.
What is a business resource that makes your life easier/better?
Leadpages helps me keep my sanity every time I’m releasing a new service because it’s pretty much a drag and drop scenario.
What is a book(s) you would recommendation for others looking to start or grow their business?
Rich Dad Poor Dad is the book that ignited the fire in me. It made me understand that having a business was a must. I built my travel website from scratch as soon as I finished reading the book.
How can people find out more about you and your businesses and how you might be able to help them?

Is there anything else you want the group to know about being an entrepreneur or travel/content marketing?
You have to love what you do. I’ve always had a love for travel and planning, so having a travel and content marketing business are exciting to me. Make sure you don’t get lost in the see of information and always remember what you love.
