Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Petrice Perry, Founder of Lady Perry Enterprise, located in Tampa, FL, USA.

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

Lady Perry Enterprise is a few things. One, I am a motivational speaker for young women and teenage girls. I am also the author of Fearless, marketed to teenage girls and women. I am also a Life Coach whose primary customers are young adults between the ages of 18-25.

Tell us about yourself

I started speaking at a very young age, not on purpose. I was always the kid with the longest part in the school play. I started coaching during my teen years, again not on purpose; however, I was the friend that not only had a solution to your problem, but I could show you step by step.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

My biggest accomplishment as a business owner was having my 2nd client, whom I coached, come back about three years after we worked together to let me know that she is still utilizing the tools that I gave her to live out loud in her life now.

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

The hardest thing I have had to deal with as a business owner is finding and keeping staff that can fully support the company's vision.

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

  1. Do your research on the business that you are looking to start.
  2. When your business is up and running, hire a CPA.
  3. The moment your passion shifts or you are no longer proud and happy about what you do, don't be afraid to pivot into something else.

Where can people find you and your business?
