A Little Bit About The Hive & Co. Duo
We started our business back in 2015 with a desire to help military spouses start and grow a business. As a military spouse, your lifestyle involves constant uncertainty and, oftentimes, constant moving. This makes having a successful career extremely difficult. Being able to have a “portable” job is invaluable as a military spouse, and that’s what makes entrepreneurship so enticing. So, with both of us being military spouses and entrepreneurs, it just made sense to help others like us achieve this dream. We began blogging as a means to give military spouses the resources they needed to start or grow a business of their own.
Now, we have expanded to offer online marketing, branding, and design services. Our mission is to encourage, empower, and equip fellow entrepreneurs and business owners in starting or growing a small business.
Whether you are just starting your business or have an established organization, The Hive & Co. has something to offer. Our online marketing, branding, and design services are tailored to each business’s needs. We can work with you to bring in new clients, connect with core customers, or even consult with you on your current marketing strategy. Our humble team of two is dedicated to helping you achieve your goals and ambitions!
I am The QueenB, a visionary, and creative spirit. I believe that if you want it bad enough, you push past your fears and go for it! I have encouraged, championed and guided many of my friends and associates in starting and marketing their business. I love networking and getting to know others who are striving to be what they dream.
I am a proud MilSpreneur (Military Spouse Entrepreneur)! I enjoy empowering women to always reach for the stars! My husband and I are highschool sweethearts and have 4 kids that range from 9 – 3 years old. We enjoy the simple things and love spending time together! We recently purchased a fixer upper house so if I am not out and about or on my computer you can find me DIYing our house or taking care of our mini farm!
I used to be your average 9-to-5’er. I moved to Wilmington, North Carolina after my husband got stationed at Camp Lejeune. I had to leave a wonderful job back home, so I did what any other person would do; I looked for another job. For some reason, I just couldn’t find the same organization, culture and work that I left behind. That’s when I decided to start my own business. I had a talent and a passion, but was nervous about taking that final leap. Then, I met Shiang-ling. It was “my better business half”, as I like to call her, that encouraged me to get over my fear of uncertainty and follow my passion! Now, I focus on helping our clients grow their business through online marketing, search marketing, and content creation.
I’m married to an amazingly supportive husband and we have two wonderful children. When I’m not trying out new recipes on Pinterest or working, I enjoy hiking, going to the beach, working out, and traveling! I love meeting new people and being inspired by others.
