Tell us more about your job or company and what led you to your career?

Main Paige Media is a strategic video production agency that focuses on uplifting businesses who uplift women. I started Main Paige Media (pun most definitely intended) in April 2019. Prior to starting my company I had been working at Simmons University for nearly 4 years creating video marketing content. I was a one-woman show and responsible for all external facing video for the university. Working at a women's college has made a huge impact on how I run my company today. Towards the end of my time at Simmons I was getting off campus and interviewing alums who had started their own businesses and it occurred to me how impactful these stories could be. Taking the leap into entrepreneurship and leaving my full time job was certainly scary, but it was the impact that other entrepreneurs had made on me that gave me the confidence to jump.

What would your clients say about you and your company?

Something I love to do is listen to my client's ideas and develop them into a vision. My clients often praise my ability to just ``get it.`` I have always seen myself as very intuitive and I love using that skill to help my clients.

What is the best advice you’ve ever received?

One of my mentors pushed hard on me not to have a scarcity mindset. That changed everything for me starting out.

What is your secret weapon? An app, a tool, a organization method, anything?! (Can be a personal or professional life tool)

Soapbox by Wista! Send video emails, it will change the game.

What is your most recent WIN? How are you slaying in your career or business?

I have been so surprised by my high volume of sales during COVID. My business reached it's one year anniversary during quarantine and I'm finding that clients from my past are reaching out for more work. It's so rewarding!

What advice would you give to your younger self?

Don't sweat the small stuff. I was such a worrier as a kid and forgot to just live a little!

How do you enjoy your free time?

Reading, walking my dog, drinking wine, and doing jigsaw puzzles

What is something that not many people know about you?

Most people are surprised to learn that I tutored middle schoolers in math for years and in college I struggled to choose between studying film or secondary education!
