Tell us about yourself
I started MFSB because I noticed the gap between what a business owner needs to grow effectively and the resources available to make it happen. MFSB bridges the gap between what a small business has and needs to play big and make an impact due to the lack of resources, including insights, training, tools, networking opportunities, support systems, community outreach, and financial stability. When you can connect the dots, a small business owner and entrepreneur now have a fighting chance of making it past the first five years of business to focus on growth, sustainability, and impact.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
One of my biggest accomplishments as a business owner has been building strong strategic alliances with other organizations that allow me to reach my target audience and establish myself as an expert and thought leader.
I’ve created 10+ partnerships with international SaaS Partners giving me access to millions of small businesses globally. I’ve trained tens of thousands of business professionals all over the world through MFSB events and strategic partners. And I’ve helped clients generate hundreds of thousands in website visitors and millions in revenue with digital marketing services during my time as a service provider.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
One of the hardest things is delegating and creating processes in your business so you can work on your business instead of working in your business. This will allow you to grow with consistency.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Define the vision for your organization.
- Define the values of your organization.
- Define your target audience and how you support them.
