Tell us about yourself

I started my company solely out of passion; I wanted others to experience the creativity in how I saw food. I've always been fascinated since 7yrs old with how you can put raw ingredients together & create a wholesome meal. I'm motivated each day because it's always something new you learn with food, with clients, and the ambiance of it all; that makes me want to keep pushing the envelope to see how far & new is next.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Being able to reach clients from all over the world, knowing that my food connected them to a new experience.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

Meeting everyone's demands, customer service is #1 in the business period; trying to facilitate a customer's request at times can be a task, and trying to help everyone doesn't always go like you plan it.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Only you know what your dream looks like, do not become engrossed in others' negative opinions.
  2. Inherit an Entrepreneurial mindset.
  3. You will likely fail several times before success, do not ever give up; fix your mistakes & go back at it again because this time you're working with more experience than you started with.

Is there anything else you'd like to share?

  1. Stay Focused.
  2. Stay Alert.
  3. Stay Hungry for success.
