Tell us about yourself
I have always had an entrepreneurial itch. I believe that if you sell something that you love and are truly passionate about, you have the best chance of succeeding.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Just getting the business launched, which happened in December 2022. It is amazing creating a physical product from concept through manufacturing and finally launching and selling.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
Trying to balance your time and knowing where to best use the hours in your day.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
Be passionate about what you are building and selling, be determined and focused, and take time to look at how far you've come. You learn so much very quickly, which is exciting, but you can often lose track of what you've achieved!
