Meet Deanna Fusillo, Sassy Girl Media

Most entrepreneurs don’t get it right the first time, or even the fifth time for the matter, but persistence pays off. Deanna Fusillo, a serial entrepreneur, started her first business at the young age of 17. When corporate America limited this single mom’s time to raise two sons, she knew she needed to make a change. She decided to launch her first startup in 2010 and was awarded the Top Leading Moms in Business by Discover and Startup Nation the following year.

Deanna, a graduate of Youngstown State University, found a passion in helping other entrepreneurs. As the founder of Sassy Girl Media, Deanna used that passion for helping small businesses with limited budgets, to launch themselves in the cyber world. Any upcoming business starter should be more than thrilled to take advice from Deanna, as she had the pleasure of working with the producers of Entertainment Tonight and The Insider as well as with stars like Ted Gibson, host of “What Not to Wear,” in which she hosted an event for him in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

Not only is Deanna passionate about supporting new entrepreneurs, she strives to empower women everywhere. Deanna is the true definition of devotion and her history in this field proves it all. Whether she demonstrates her wit and talent through her own business or in the aid of another’s, Deanna truly loves what she does. All in all, this hashtag abuser by day and mom by night, has a lot to offer and has a bright future ahead of her.
