What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

My biggest accomplishment thus far is starting a black-owned private Holistic Health Care Practice.

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

I believe one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner is that you are constantly working. When working for an employer, you have a sense of security as you know that once you complete your 40 hours, you will have a check deposited in your account. As a business owner, you are in charge of marketing yourself and your services, which requires dedication, sacrifice, and consistency to achieve your business goals.

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

  1. Business planning and forecasting.
  2. Funding to support marketing and business growth.
  3. A support group that will help you personally and professionally.
