Meet the Faces Behind SociallyUP
Hi Everyone! I’m Regina Helton, the Co-founder of SociallyUP. It is so exciting to be able to introduce myself on the blog today! SociallyUP is my dream job, no joke. The company has developed over the past few years from the early stages of being an idea turned dream, vision, goal, and now a reality. I have a strong passion for entrepreneurs and small business owners with a dream of creating, producing, and bringing their dreams and passions to life. My passion for small business runs deep. I come from a strong entrepreneurial focused family.
I was raised in a creative household that encouraged me to have an entrepreneurial spirit. My parents and grandparents were open-minded entrepreneurs who dreamed ideas into life. As a young child, I watched my parents operate everything from a plumbing company, grocery store, repair shop, and real estate company. My grandmother operated a fabric store and drove a church bus (she was pretty awesome). I don’t know if they realize how much watching them work affected my work ethic. Through their hard work, I learned more than I can even begin to mention. I learned to dream my own dreams and dream them big. As a child, I can remember operating a lemonade/kool-aide stand at my grandparents’ house in the city of Detroit. I made sure all of the neighborhood kids were well hydrated! ha! I think it is safe to say, I’ve always had an entrepreneurial heart.
I have merged everything I am business passionate and extensively knowledgeable about into one awesome company. I am very excited to be able to combine my love of small business with the exciting aspects of marketing and branding with social media. I’ve worked in a variety of backgrounds. Everything from restaurant and medical, to small business owner. I’ve participated in numerous business launches over the years including, small business branding and marketing, online retail, vintage retail, brick & mortar retail, photography, and life & style blogging (just to name a few). I also have an MA in Organizational Leadership which further developed and strengthened my business background.I know, without a doubt, SociallyUP can fit exactly what you want socially for your brand.

Let’s Wrap it Up
I am passionate about small business and small business owners. I want you to make it! I’ve been in your shoes and I’ve had success and failure. I know the excitement and fear of being a small business owner. I know the struggle of figuring it all out on your own. My work experiences, successes, failures, and educational background are each an invaluable learning experience. I’ve developed as an entrepreneur myself from each learning experience I’ve had. I’m able to determine with little hesitation what works and doesn’t work when it comes to small business. I would love to sit down with you and go over the services SociallyUP can offer you. I know, without a doubt, we can fit exactly what you want socially for your brand and business.
With much thanks – Regina
