My first job ever was… babysitting my younger brother.
I decided to be an entrepreneur because… I wanted to be my own boss and have my hard work be part of my own business.
My proudest accomplishment is… having two beautiful young adult children.
My biggest setback was… dealing with the rejection and lack of success in my first year of business.
I overcame it by… not giving up, not letting the rejection define me, and not letting fear overcome me.
When starting my business, I wish I knew… the hills would turn to mountains and my perseverance would lead to getting to the summit.
My best advice for people looking to grow their business is… do not let fear take over and take a risk if it feels right. You have to spend money to make money.
A great leader is… someone who sees the potential in others, encourages their growth, and leads by example. Someone willing to learn as well as mentor.
The future excites me because… I see opportunities all around and my potential has no limits.
Success to me means… having life balance.
