Today we’d like to introduce you to Tara Weber.
So, before we jump into specific questions, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
Weber Creative Media began with a desire to get back to using my skills to create things. I was on a long and winding search for a job that met my needs and brought me happiness, but I kept coming up empty-handed. I have always enjoyed being creative through performing music and writing songs, and I realized, writing words gave me a similar sense of fulfillment. Once I discovered that I could realistically make a living through content writing, I decided to put my energy into creating a job for myself instead of continuing my search. WCM started with a few well-received blogs and has grown into a full-blown business that can now support me with full-time pay.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
The road has had some bumpy spots, but not in the ways I expected. It was emotionally challenging to let go of a “secure job” at a medical office that paid well in exchange for uncertainty and complete autonomy. Having full control of your professional life sounds appealing until you realize that you are the only one responsible for holding yourself accountable. Being a solo entrepreneur means you may not have a team to back you up, motivate you, and help get the work done.
My advice for other young women who are beginning their journey is to keep pushing through the hard stuff, but don’t be afraid to ask for help. If you can connect with someone in your industry who you trust that can act as a mentor, lean on them when you need support. It is okay to be unsure. You can’t possibly know everything, especially when you are just starting your journey. You got this!
So let’s switch gears a bit and go into Weber Creative Media story. Tell us more about the business.
Weber Creative Media writes words for businesses. The main types of content I produce are blogs, website copy, and social media posts. I write for a wide variety of industries ranging from construction companies to law firms. My favorite niche to write for is the health and wellness space. I particularly enjoy writing for chiropractors, as it is something I am knowledgeable and quite passionate about!
I am very proud of the quality of work I deliver. I pride myself on my ability to write content for my clients that is authentic to their brand, resonates with their customer base, and requires little to no revisions.
What do you feel are the biggest barriers today to female leadership, in your industry or generally?
The professional world is still a “man’s world” in many ways. We as women have fought long and hard to reach equality, but there is still a ways to go. I think there is still resistance to female leadership, but we need more women in positions of power, creative roles, and many other areas of business.
