We had the good fortune of connecting with Andreana Salvemini and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Andreana, what’s one piece of conventional advice that you disagree with?
I remember someone telling me that you shouldn’t leave a company unless you had worked there for at least a year. This is when I was considering transitioning to a better company after being with my first advertising agency for only one year. I disagreed and told them you should follow your passion and go where opportunity for growth awaits you. It’s been 7 years and I am so grateful I made that decision. I not only grew, made more money, and learned new skills, but it was a stepping stone to meet the right people and gain the knowledge needed to start my own social media marketing company!
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Starting my own business was definitely scary. It took a leap of faith and trust in the universe. I had tremendous support from my partner at the time, and probably wouldn’t have and couldn’t have done it without him. So I am grateful for his wisdom and help in getting me started.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
In my local neighborhood, the South Bay, coffee at the Blue Butterfly is a MUST! My favorite mocha latte in all of LA. There are also some great spots on Hermosa Pier. Palmilla has the best tortillas and delicious cocktails. Otherwise, it’s beach hangs, frisbee, sunsets with amazing wines from Uncorked Hermosa, and lots of sunshine!
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I am forever grateful to them! I also give major props to a book that forever changed my life and mindset: The Untethered Soul by Michael Alan Singer. It really helps you to reframe your mindset, understand the voice in your head, manage your ego, and to really grow as an individual. Always be learning and evolving!
