Today we’d like to introduce you to Beverly Harris.
Beverly, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
Before I became a veritable Google search engine for all things Beverly Hills related, I had to hardscrabble my way to the top. I’m a proud Chicago native, but in 1996 I packed my belongings into a vintage Gucci duffle and left the Windy City with my eyes and heart set on Los Angeles. I’ve always known Beverly Hills was the place for me, and boy was I right.
Alas, when I first arrived in the City of Angels, a Beverly Hills address was beyond my means, so I decided the next best thing would be to work there. And that’s just what I did! Each day I made it my mission to visit a Beverly Hills store and introduce myself. Ten years later, armed with a killer Rolodex, I decided to leave the corporate world where I had been working as an executive assistant, and start Beverly Harris Weddings.
After six glamorous years producing dream-come-true weddings under the Beverly Harris Weddings umbrella, I decided I wanted to share my expertise with a wider audience, so The Beverly Hills Insider was born. When I am not working, I am spending time with my fur baby, Spunky. Spunky is the 11-year-old Chihuahua that has been with me since she was three months and helps me to keep balance in my life.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Being an outsider of Beverly Hills coming from Chicago wasn’t easy convincing Beverly Hills businesses/brands to trust and work with me. I had no experience in the industry and didn’t know anyone in the area. It was a tough starting point, but not impossible.
At first, I felt intimidated, I mean, after all, it is Beverly Hills. I knew if I was to achieve my dream of being The Beverly Hills Insider, I had to push on. There have been lots of times when I’ve felt overwhelmed. When starting out as an entrepreneur, I wore all the hats.
And let’s not talk about posting and creating content on social media. I’m tired just thinking about it. Lol! But, you get through it. I believe challenges make you stronger.
