Tell us about yourself
My plan was to go into the medical field, but God had a different plan for my life. So I decided to help people mentally and discovered the more I help people the more I see we are all wounded in some ways and can always improve.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Having someone who is hurting be free of that bondage. I get to help save lives and help people have hope again. There is no better reward than seeing people free from emotional pain.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
The hardest thing is that it is part of me & always on my mind, sometimes it is hard to get away from thinking how I can do better.
What are the top 3 tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
Meet with colleagues & learn from others, do not be afraid to ask for help and advice. It is always best to learn from others mistakes.
If there was one thing you could do repeatedly to help grow your business, what would it be?
As long as I provider quality care the business will grow. My focus is not on money, but on helping people.
What are some of the things you put in place to maintain a healthy work/life balance?
I set lots of boundaries, when I am at home I do not take calls or e-mails. I also practice what I preach. I prioritize my own mental health and do self care.
