Laura K. Inamedinova, CEO of LKI Consulting uses social media to empower young women

Published

Laura Kornelija Inamedinova is an entrepreneur, Founder & CEO of LKI Consulting – a B2B tech and Blockchain-focused marketing agency, who started her business 7 years ago at the age of 20. An active social media influencer, Laura is sharing tips for career growth and insights for the founders of crypto/NFT projects, inspiring females to take charge, compete in the male-dominated industries, and find inspiration to be the main character of their lives.

Inamedinova hasn’t planned to become a marketing expert. During her school years, Laura has dreamt of a career in science and innovation. That’s why she entered Vilnius University, pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Physics. But soon after graduation, Laura realized that working long hours on her own in the lab doesn’t match her personality. She carried on to explore many career fields – from cybersecurity to Customer Support to PR to Journalism, eventually discovering her true passion for the tech industry.

Managing a marketing agency

Like with any other job, running a Marketing agency is not easy. Laura shares that she has to take ownership of the quality of all marketing deliverables, the cashflow, the well-being of the employees, and, most importantly, the satisfaction of the Clients. To enable her team to perform at their best, Laura emphasizes the importance of a positive work environment where all the members feel understood, valued, and challenged.

Inamedinova’s schedule is packed each day, starting with the morning check-in calls with team members and followed with business development activities. Laura admits that she’s truly career-oriented. Though she frequently works until late hours, the CEO advocates for the importance of dedicating at least one day a week to rest. For her, it’s non-negotiable to completely separate from work and focus on relaxation to restore productivity.

Social networks – from hobby to career

Back in her university years, Inamedinova used her social media networks as a platform to inspire others, especially younger girls, to pursue their goals and conquer the business world. Her main goal is providing bite-sized digestible content for those who are just taking their first career steps. When starting her business, Inamedinova lacked a lot of information. Now, she is determined to be the source of knowledge and encouragement she’s always wanted to have.

What initially started as a hobby for Laura now helped her find new business opportunities, partners, and employees. Inamedinova highly recommends developing your personal brand and investing in self-development early on. Setting small attainable goals, disciplining yourself, practicing positive thinking, and making yourself a priority are just a few of the many tools in her toolkit.

The “difficult” decision to cut service comes as significant carriers wrestle with a deficiency of pilots when interest for movement is blasting.

As a matter of fact, “there were 188 networks that lost something like 25% of their air service, either during the pandemic or during the principal half of 2022 as the pilot lack deteriorated,” the Regional Airline Association (RAA) recently revealed.

Last month, Alaska Airlines CEO Ben Minicucci said the transporter will have day to day cancelations through June 1 because of the pilot lack.

The transporter had been having functional provokes since April because of not having an adequate number of pilots to fly its spring plan, Minicucci said in a note to clients last month.

Of its 1,200 day to day flights, it’s been dropping around 50 of them, Minicucci said.

In the mean time, recently, JetBlue said it had to lessen trips all through the mid year due to shortages on service.

Toward the beginning of 2022, United Airlines reported the beginning of its preparation program. Joined projected that the foundation will prepare around 5,000 new pilots by 2030 — satisfying portion of its arrangement to enlist 10,000 new pilots in that chance to battle the lack.
