Tell us about yourself
My name is Angela Longoria. I have always had a passion for helping people. I desire God's best for everyone. I am passionate about my faith, but I work with people from all walks of life. I became a Christian as an adult, so I am comfortable around all people.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Breaking out of my comfort zone and starting a business is my biggest accomplishment so far. I was scared and not looking to own my own business. It has been a leap of faith, but God is faithful!
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
Managing the paperwork is hard for me. I would prefer to just see clients and not have to do accounting and all the other tasks that I have to keep up with.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Prayer is number one on my list.
- Trust is a second.
- Keep moving forward is a third.
We need God's direction, and when we ask for it, we need to trust He is providing it even when it seems hard. Just because things do not look good one day doesn't mean you can not be successful. Every day you have to work hard and take the thoughts and fears of failure captive so you do not succumb to them.
Is there anything else you'd like to share?
God is good. Even if what happens in life is not the way we wanted. We learn from our failures, and we turn them into successes if we keep trying.
