Sassy N’ Smaht Network Hanson, MA Monique Renee started her career at the young age of 15, excited to make a difference in the world. While attending high school, she worked at a local newspaper, learning everything she could about its production processes and business model. While in college, she worked for the third-largest investment management firm in the country. After graduation, she continued working full time while also blogging about online marketing and mentoring fellow entrepreneurs she met in Facebook Groups.
She left her day job when her first son was born, but needed something to do from home to keep her mind active. With her new perspective as a stay-at-home mom, she created a Facebook community to help other mothers save money and start their own online businesses. Little did she know how quickly that community—along with demand for her services—would grow.
“I started my company shortly before the pandemic hit, and I firmly believe that if it weren’t for Meta tools, I would never have been able to monetize and scale my business the way I did during that uncertain time,” Monique explained. “Reels and Facebook Events, along with Stories for exposure and Groups for discussion, keep our 400,000 loyal followers engaged. These tools are critical for our reach and brand loyalty.”
“Without Meta tools, my company wouldn’t be as successful as it is.” —Monique Renee, Founder and CEO, Sassy N’ Smaht Network
