Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in fine arts but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Cendee Bellisle, Owner of Chase The Deals & Hollow Branch Creations, located in Hopkinsville, KY, USA.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

Our business is to help people save time and money while being environmentally aware. Our customers are people who love to spend time with their loved ones, love to cook, care for the environment, or love to save money.

Tell us about yourself

We needed more time, period. We needed a way to decorate the table and serve our meals fast. We needed it to be reusable, and wood is better for the Earth.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Anytime a customer sends me an email telling me how much they love their purchase is a huge accomplishment.

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

Marketing or reaching new customers is the hardest part. It's hard to get people to see the benefit of buying real handmade wooden products versus cheap particle boards.

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

Find professionals to help you, get professional pictures, and know your budget at all times.

Is there anything else you'd like to share?

Our family works hard to make products that will last for generations, so your families can make great memories together.

Where can people find you and your business?
