Meet Shantel Khleif, founder of Imagine Media Consulting based in Atlanta, Georgia. Shantel founded her company based on a “light bulb moment” in which a trip into a local Atlanta Pie Shop aptly named: The Pie Shop; sparked an idea that has turned into a full fledged, growing business. Having recently moved Chicago, Shantel was initially seeking to expand her wedding business into the Atlanta market. As an important aside, serving pie instead of cake at weddings has become a growing trend and Shantel was seeking a boutique pie shop to work with and of course, to try the pie.
Despite the incredible tasting pie, Shantel noticed that the owner had not done anything to justly advertise her amazing pies, especially on social media. Shantel asked if she could help the owner communicate her brand in a different way so that other people could discover the pies. Almost overnight, Shantel’s social media experiment took off and Imagine Media Consulting was born. Shantel has since expanded to add a team of social media experts who focus on helping small business communicate the core tenets of their businesses in an entirely different way on popular social media platforms such as Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram.
Listen to Shantel share her experience as in entrepreneur in taking a true “ah-hah” moment and turning that into a full-time growing business that focuses on building relationships, not profiles. Shantel shares wonderful insight that is applicable to any aspiring entrepreneur interested in starting a business from a simple, well-founded idea.
