Interview with Laura Marie Host - by Laine Torres
On your devoteddaily.com website you introduce yourself as “perfectly imperfect.” Can you tell us a little more about that and about your work?
Yes, I am truly so imperfect, which is why I am a Christian. I know that in God’s eyes I am perfectly made, but as we know, we are all broken and have our own issues. In today’s world it’s so easy to look on social media and feel like everyone has it so “perfect” when, in reality, their life is really a hot mess, ha, ha! So, I want my friends and audience to know that I am indeed imperfect, but I know that it’s exactly what I am supposed to be: Perfectly Imperfect!
I am a lifetime entrepreneur. Since I was in elementary school, I have been pursuing my dreams and passions as an entrepreneur; from owning a brick and mortar store, to being a top leader in direct sales. I have a passion and drive to empower entrepreneurs to be who God purposed them to be.
You will be launching a new business community in the next few months. What brought on this idea and what do you wish for it to accomplish?
My big God Project now is launching a Christian Entrepreneur Community to empower Christian Entrepreneurs to be who God purposed them to be through an online private membership community named Key Community. God placed this idea in my heart 2 years ago and it’s been a work in progress ever since. There is plenty of content on the World Wide Web today on how to build a business, but I wanted to have a place where Christians could come together and pursue their dreams and passions, and also grow in their Faith. It’s going to be amazing to see how this community helps Christian Entrepreneurs around the world grow in the Business and Faith!
You went to Laine Torres Photography to have a lifestyle shoot. In what ways are you going to use the new photos to develop your new brand?
I have used the photos in a workbook, on lead pages, on my website and I’m sure they will be used in many other future projects as well!
You have had true success in developing your online presence. Will you speak to your process and the importance of creating online engagement by utilizing your voice and building relationships?
I know that God has placed an incredible audience in my path and it’s so fun to be able to engage with them. I find that being real and “imperfect” is what truly allows me to connect with my audience. I also have a true heart for helping others and seeing them have success. I am never afraid to share my love for Jesus and my love for people. I believe if you just love on your audience and be real, it will help them to connect with you and want to tune in to what you have to share.
You are living true to your personal side in your businesses. Has that been a challenge, a blessing, or both and why?
Being true to God first and giving God the glory is number 1. That allows me to step back and stay humble. I know that I am where I am today and I am who I am today because of Him, and all the obstacles and blessings that have been in my path; it’s all part of the process to experience success.
Is there anything else you would like people to know about your new venture?
