Tell us about yourself
My love for tech started young. As a kid, I would help my dad build computers, and I was pretty darn good at it. I loved seeing the inside of the machine and learning how everything worked together. That love of technology carried on into my college years. After getting my Bachelor's degree in Computer Science and Master's in Engineering and Technology Management, I embarked on a 5-year career in corporate IT. But something was missing.
That initial love I had for technology that was fueled by the challenge of making all the little pieces work together was buried in the day-to-day work I did as an IT specialist. That's when I decided to start helping people with their online business systems and setup. Being able to map out the process visually, identify the pain points, and find the right tech to make businesses run better was my calling!
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
I enjoy seeing the transformations and successes my clients have experienced by working with me.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
One of the hardest things is knowing when to turn off the business thoughts. Ideas and solutions spark all the time; it's important to know when to turn it off and just be present with your family and friends. You have to be mindful that there is more to life than just your business. You started the business for a reason.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Keep Going; there will be bumps in the road.
- Remain consistent.
- Don't get caught up in what everyone else is doing; stay in your own path.
