What's your business, and who are your customers?
Our business, SNAAP Transportation, is fundamentally changing the way people move around their communities. Our mission is to provide a sustainable alternative to personal transportation that helps to alleviate the problems caused by the 80% of single-occupant vehicles on the roadways: pollution, environmental degradation, congestion, and lack of sustainable infrastructure. We help connect people, places, and things.
Tell us about yourself
I was a public educator, administrator, non-profit executive, and board member and got the sales, startup, and entrepreneurial bug more than 25 years ago. With a desire to solve problems, educate people, and improve their lives, starting businesses is a natural fit.
What motivates me daily is the excitement that comes from bringing to life new programs, services, and products that genuinely make a difference in people's lives, daily.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Funding SNAAP Transportation and bringing it to the market.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
Fundraising, focus, building a team, executing the plan. My mantra is #Rise&Execute.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Don't go at it alone; find a co-founder that loves the idea and has a different, complementary skill set.
- Research the market, study your industry, and differentiate your offerings.
- Do not grow weary in doing good.
