We had the good fortune of connecting with Kevin Noyola and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Kevin, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
Starting LedByWoman, a women-based business website was a matter of thinking about the important women in my life. Women are empowering each other more than ever and we’re seeing a new revolt against the norms in business. Since many studies have already shown the benefits of women entrepreneurs, it seemed only right to dedicate a website towards the success of women.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
My work consists of lots of research and practices that grow online communities. I work professionally on social media and websites for a variety of clients from different industries.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Living in Chicago comes with its perks with lots of tourist events and restaurants to choose from. A normal weekend consists of trying out any new restaurant, enjoying views from a distance and enjoying some casual drinks with other writers.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Of course, there is people in communities that have helped us get to where we are today. Namely, Eco Treatise (https://ecotreatise.com) and its founder daVarius Robinson has been a huge help in the building of LedByWoman. daVarius Robinson and Kevin Noyola started their websites simultaneously and plan on working together for further events that will benefit Women across the US.
Many women have also helped us come up with many ideas for articles and events that will be planned for the future. While our influences are powerful women entrepreneurs, we get a lot of insight from the everyday mom with a home business. The women in our communities love to share their stories with us and also recommend family women-owned businesses for us to review!
