Hey everyone. I’ve been a long-time lurker of this subhq overview, checking out other posts and trying to gain as much advice as I could before our soft launch. This is actually my first time posting on hq overview, and I figured others like me could benefit from seeing what I’ve been doing. I recently launched [Mavient Blue](https://www.mavientblue.com), a consulting and professional service focused on making your visions profitable. So I figured I’d share the start of my journey to entrepreneurship. Maybe it’ll inspire some of you. Or perhaps you guys can make some suggestions for my site (that would definitely be appreciated!). After years of helping my corporate job grow from a small to midsize company to a prominently listed fortune 500, I finally decided it’s time for me to begin my own company. I knew I could start a business based on the success I had growing the corporate company with the right strategies to optimize successes based on ROI, annual projected profit, and payback period. With this idea, Mavient Blue was born. So here’s what I’ve done so far: I bootstrapped my own site. It’s not beautiful, but it tells people what we do. While I’m not an expert web developer, I felt I could save on the cost of having a website made by creating it in my offtime. There’s still a lot I need to do, but I’m going to run with it for now and make adjustments over time. I wrote and published [our first blog article](https://www.mavientblue.com/blog/2018/7/10/blog-headline-nrts7) on strategic outsourcing. I’ve been told that it’s important to provide value to our audience because over time, this can help us become a resource in the niche. I’d like for Mavient Blue to eventually become a place where entrepreneurs can find insight and guidance focused on scaling their businesses. I started putting together a content strategy. I’m currently taking a free course on [HubSpot Academy](https://academy.hubspot.com/) to learn more about content marketing. Since I’m bootstrapping this business, it makes sense to learn how to create and implement a content strategy. While I plan to hire some freelancers to help establish our web presence, I want to do as much as I can to market my business on my own. If anyone has any suggestions regarding free resources, I’d love to hear them! As I continue working on Mavient Blue, I’m excited to see how far we can take it. I hope you guys have enjoyed reading this and look forward to hearing from and interacting with you. – by hq overview __Maven – –
