Tell us about YOU!! (Who are you & What do you do?) My name is Alethea Copelas and I am the owner and creative director of Inspired Website Design. I left my corporate marketing careeer in 2003 to spread my wings and have been an entrepreneur ever since. Inspired Website Design was founded in 2019 and specializes in working with women owned businesses to empower their brand online. Through my collaborative process, I am able to understand their brand story, ideal client and vision for their business. Then, once the site is complete, I empower them to embrace their autonomy by offering live training so they feel comfortable making updates to their site in the future.
What makes you different/stand out in your industry? I have been an entrepreneur for over 20 years and understand the challenges of trying to ‘wear many hats’. I support my clients so they can focus their energy on their zone of genius. Their vision drives the design, but I do the heavy lifting. My design process is not only about creating a website that my clients are proud to share with the world, it’s also about holding space for their dreams to come to life. The result: a website that stands out and meaningfully connect with their ideal client.
What do your clients love about you? From the first consultation call, I take the time to listen to client needs and translate what they envision in their head into a website that they are proud to share with the world.
What is the best advice you can share with others? Find other women in business that you can learn from and will offer guidance and support when you need it. If you hit a bump in the road or need to pivot, remember what you learned from the process. One of my favorite quotes by Brene Brown sums it up for me “To love ourselves and support each other in the process of becoming real is perhaps the greatest single act of daring greatly.”
How has the Women’s Business League helped you? I have visited many networking groups over the years and WBL stood out from the very first meeting I attended. Melissa and Amy have created a community where we can all grow together. My chapter (Andover) has provided a safe space to share challenges as well as celebrate wins. WBL provides amazing resources to help our businesses flourish.
