Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
I’ve always been creative. As a child, I would design or try to make new inventions out of boredom. After creating a craft, I would then go door to door in my neighborhood and try to sell it. Design and being able to own a design firm is a true blessing that I am grateful to have every day.
Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this?
Hearing from others how I inspire then. Those words are something that I do not take for granted; it means a lot. I continue to do what I can to not only inspire but motivate other business owners to live their passion every day.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
Don’t mimic others. Be your own person, and be unique.
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
Of course! Our almighty God. I would not be where I am today without him. Every day he continues to provide me with strength and guidance to keep pushing my business forward.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
I am now launching, Sis, Start Your Business “https://www.sisstartyourbusiness.com/”, a new podcast designed to teach women in business how to start their business, handle their business with God’s guidance.
Episodes will cover a range of topics, including thought leadership, solution strategies, technical how-to’s, and tips and tricks, alongside interviews with a variety of industry analysts.
See, owning a business is a misunderstood concept and it isn’t always sharply defined. The reality is that when you open a business, you have to run the business. In doing so, you have to do and oversee many functions, from marketing to accounting to handling employees to dealing with customer service and more. So my goal is to educate you on all these topics and entertain our growing audience.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
Walk by faith and not by sight, lead not unto your own understandings.
When I think back on one of the worst career decisions I ever made that generated serious trauma to my business, it was trusting the wrong people. Because I put my faith in individuals who lied, cheated, purposefully misrepresented the opportunities at hand, I’ve made big life and career mistakes and engaged in the wrong partnerships, relationships, and deals, as a result. What I know now is that I will do more listening than speaking and you will hear everything you need to know about someone.
