Tell us about yourself
I got started on my marketing journey out of interest and passion for social media and technology.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
My biggest accomplishment has been obtaining clientele for my business, maintaining satisfaction from them, and earning return business/sales.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
One of the hardest things as a business owner is having a personal life. When you’re investing everything into your business, you realize you don’t have much time for anything else. Business is a serious commitment.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Patience: starting a new business right away, you might not make money for the first couple of years, but if you stay working on your goals, success will come.
- Trust: You need to build a small team of reliable people who you are confident in their ability to excel in your business.
- Seek connections and opportunities: Learn to find some common ground with people in your industry and use that connection to benefit from each other.
