Meet Ronne Brown: From zero to seven-figure hero

Ronne Brown’s journey from the humble beginnings of making beauty products in her home to becoming a renowned branding maestro and a champion of financial freedom is a narrative sure to keep you at the edge of your seat. We asked Ronne to share her biggest wins—and losses—with us. Here’s what she had to say…

Have you always had an entrepreneurial mindset?

“Yes, I started my first business in 2009 making beauty products in my home and selling them online.”

Tell us about your first sale? What did that mean to you?

“My first sale gave me reassurance and it lit the fire under me. This was confirmation that I could do it. It’s something about that first sale that makes you feel like you can accomplish anything.” 

When did you first realize you could become a creator full time?

‘After taking people on the journey with me and allowing them to see the process of my business/brand I hit six figures and shortly after hit seven figures. While the financial accomplishments were great my audience loved being able to see me go from 0 to 7 figures. It was the process of seeing my journey that excited them the most. That's when I realized that being a creator was possible and that people love behind the scenes more than anything.”

When you feel imposter syndrome creeping in, what do you do?

“The first thing I do is remember that God has a bigger purpose for my life and that I was called to be great. I practice positive affirmations speaking success and abundance over myself constantly. I remind myself that nothing will happen in my comfort zone and from there I take the leap.”

What is your favorite part about what you do?

“My favorite part about what I do is that I get to help people experience financial freedom. With financial freedom it gives people more options and time to spend with their families.”

What has been your biggest win or proudest moment in business—so far? 

“My biggest accomplishment has been retiring from Corporate America,  becoming the first seven figure earner in my family, retiring my mom and being able to be home with my children.”

When was a time where you failed miserably but learned a valuable lesson?

“Right before the pandemic I had a Girl CEO in-person conference planned; however, I had to pivot to an online conference. I was crushed because we sold over 400 tickets but I felt like I failed miserably! What I learned in that moment was the power of pivoting. We decided to make the event virtual and it ended up being a success. Today we are gearing up for our 2024 Girl CEO Conference and I’m so excited.”

As a branding expert, why is branding so important for a business/creator?

“Branding is extremely important because it is how your customers connect with you beyond your product or service.”

What is a business or creative goal you’ve set for yourself for the year? 

“Outside of teaching entrepreneurs how to grow their businesses online I started a passion project to empower women on the go to prioritize self-care again through plant based skincare and feminine care products. The name of the brand is Herlistic and my goal is for the mission and the product to touch women all over the globe.”

What advice do you have for someone just starting their creator journey? 

“Think about the problem you are going to solve. Ask your audience what they want to see from you and be sure to post that type of content consistently. Over time you will grow a community that loves, shares, and always remembers your brand.”
