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

My business embraces blogging, public speaking, women's conferences, seminars, and workshops about career/life management.

Tell us about yourself

Publishing my book got me started working on my business. Pure unadulterated hope that I indeed have something to contribute to the world that must be presented motivates me every day. Many others have something similar to say or work to do while on earth, but nobody else can carry out the assignment given specifically to me the exact way I do it.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

My biggest accomplishment is daring to come above the ground with what was once a dream.

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

The hardest part of being a business owner is weathering the low seasons of the business and facing failure.

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

  1. Consider whether you really want to just get out of a job hunt or create a business.
  2. Understand that your choice to grow a business is a marathon, not a sprint.
  3. Nobody builds a successful business alone.

Where can people find you and your business?
