Serial entrepreneur Alisa Marie Beyer shares her entrepreneur reality and how she worked to build and sell her latest company, Coastal Salt & Soul, within three years. Building a beauty company from scratch is brutal, with three out of four failing within the first 18 months. Many entrepreneurs suffer from near-debilitating anxiety and bleakness throughout the process. Alisa wants to inspire others with the honesty of her voice so that her story may help them. Find out how she gained access to capital, managed decision fatigue, faced cash-on-hand crisis after crisis, recovered from multiple setbacks, and finally found the right deal-maker to get the job done.

Bonus: Leveraging her knowledge gained from listening to hundreds—if not thousands—of pitch presentations, Alisa shares her “Coastal Salt & Soul” Pitch Deck, giving you the formula for what you should include in your own pitch deck.
