In today’s world, starting in entrepreneurship is no small feat. There are numerous stories of individuals who ventured into their chosen field without anything on their backs but their dreams, passion, and an unwavering determination to succeed. A highly accomplished entrepreneur and CEO of Blanks Galore, Cassandra Smith is an individual driving home the point that one’s humble beginning should not hinder success as she inspires others to take a definitive step toward achieving their life’s goals.
Hailing from the small town of Mcrae, Georgia, Cassandra Smith came from a single-parent household where her mother worked twice as hard to provide for the family. However, Cassandra was determined to mark her name in the history books as she grew older. So, with nothing but a heart full of dreams, she relocated to Atlanta, where she started a custom sublimation business, Blanks Galore. At the beginning of her entrepreneurial journey, she was met with many challenges that left her discouraged but not deterred, stressed but not hopeless and even resulted in avoidable mistakes along the way. She was even homeless at some point, literally going live from a hotel room teaching people how to sublimate on blanks and answer questions.
However, Cassandra did not give up so easily on her dreams. Instead, she learned from her mistakes and persevered. Finally, she cracked the code to entrepreneurial success, and she realized she wanted to help others like her.
“I knew I wanted to create an easier path for people just like me, who weren’t looking for a handout but were looking for a helping hand to lead them the right way. I can tell and show people how to get to where I’m at because I have been where they are at or worst,” she explained.
To get started, she reached out to other creative entrepreneurs through her business, Blanks Galore, teaching them the trick of the trade on starting their own sublimation and craft business while providing the necessary tools such as her branded BG sublimation paper, sublimation blanks, and her hands-on and virtual sublimation classes needed to become successful.
One of Cassandra Smith’s most unique attributes is the type of business model she operates at Blanks Galore. Through her business, she has curated a top-class team of experts in every business area that will hold you by hand and help you reach your goal of turning your hobby into a profit. In addition, she freely shares her knowledge and resources with other budding entrepreneurs, seeing a collaboration instead of a competition as she provides value to others by teaching a blueprint to success that transcends industries to create a sustainable income.
As a result of her generous business model, Blanks Galore could do 10x in revenue, as customers know they can trust the brand and will get value for their money. In the coming years, Cassandra aims to continue making a positive impact in people’s lives through her enterprise.
“I see myself opening BG franchises across the globe and making sure the entire world has the help they need to start their sublimation business,” she shared.
