From “terrible student” to building a multi-million-dollar agency with Cynthia Johnson of Bell + Ivy (FTF 4.3)

Cynthia Johnson wasn’t exactly a perfect fit for public school—after being homeschooled she found the entire thing a bit restrictive.

But the same autonomous, adventurous, entrepreneurial mindset that may have caused trouble in school, helped her build a multi-million dollar agency and personal brand.

Now Cynthia is a speaker and author in high demand. She also runs Bell + Ivy a personal branding agency working with some of the most well-known companies in the world.

In today’s episode of Freelance to Founder, you’ll  hear all about how Cynthia went from selling Kool-Aid in Ziplock bags as a child to speaking at 35+ events in the past year.
