Tell us about yourself

What got me to start on my own was to have more freedom and flexibility to do what I enjoy doing. The motivation now (after 19 years of starting the business) comes from the fact that even if I can impact a single life positively, it will be a satisfying moment.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

What I feel most proud of is the fact that most of our customers are long-term, and we get all new business through referrals. I have not done any cold calling in the last 5-7 years.

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

To maintain the trust of clients who become our partners. Especially when they share so much with you about their organization and people. Also, the fact that we need to maintain the standards every single day.

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

  1. Promise realistically.
  2. Deliver exceptionally.
  3. Be consistent.
  4. Keep learning!!

Where can people find you and your business?
