What drives you as an entrepreneur?
I am driven by the fact that I am doing what I love. Having the ability to coach women and help them to understand how to better to take care of themselves and encouraging them to become their best selves is the number one motivator.
What advice would you give a woman who wants to start a business? My advice for a woman starting her own business would be to follow your passion, develop you personal and business mission, strategize and execute your vision!
Don’t forget!It is important to trust YOURSELF!
Who has been your inspiration as a business owner?
I can’t say that I have one source of inspiration. I am connected to a network of Holistic Health Coaches/Wellness Practitioners who are women of color. I am inspired to see so many women of color thriving as entrepreneurs in this profession where we are the minority. I keep saying that I can do it just like the did it!
To what do you contribute your success? I contribute my success to my spiritual foundation and my ancestors.
What is the best part about being a leader or entrepreneur?
The best part about being a entrepreneurs charting your own path!
What have you learned about leadership, entrepreneurship and mentoring others?
As an old adage says ” A closed mouth won’t get fed”. As an entrepreneur, you have to ask for what you want!. Don’t be afraid to ask!
