Were you born and raised in Boston? If not, what brought you here?

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

My company is called Social by Sinead and I am a social media manager and coach. To be completely honest this opportunity fell into my lap and I just ran with it! In May 2019 I walked into a beauty salon to get my lashes done. The owner was also Irish and said I looked young and asked if I would help her with my social media. One month later her accounts were thriving and I decided I wanted to start a side hustle helping other female entrepreneurs market their business on Facebook and Instagram. I continued working my corporate 9-5 job, nannying 5 kids on the weekends and building up my business. Fast forward past all the late nights, stressful days and hard work to August 2020 where I had my best month in business yet. I decided it was time to go all in and I quit my corporate job last week. I can't wait to spend all of my time serving my clients and building my brand. I have so many exciting opportunities that have come my way lately and I'm so beyond grateful!

What would your clients say about you and your company?

I have the most amazing and supportive clients! I am so beyond grateful for all of them. I love reading the testimonials they leave for me on my Facebook page or email to me. One of my very first clients who is still with me today said this - ``Sinead I just want to express how grateful I am for your help! I’ve been beyond happy with how many people are asking for my help. I don’t think I’ve ever achieved anything so quickly and I am 100% certain that’s because of your help! Thank you so much for everything. I refer you to every I know!”

What is the best advice you’ve ever received?

``Make people believe in you as much as you believe in yourself.``

What is your favorite book?

The Secret

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

Canva & Planoly! I would be lost without them.

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

I just quit my corporate job and turned my side hustle into my full time job! I also have landed lots of dream clients including BBW!

What advice would you give to your younger self?

Stick with your goals and ambitions because things will work out the way you envision. Mindset is everything so don't give up!

How do you enjoy your free time?

I love going to the beach, going out to eat with friends and spending time with family!

What is something that not many people know about you?

All of my family lives in Ireland. I go about 3 times a year and now that I work for myself I am hoping to extend these trips longer to spend more time with family!
