Why did you start your business?
It simply was time to bet on me. I’ve always wanted to own my own business with several false starts in the past. With being in a stable yet unfulfilling career I just ended up in that was paying me six figures, being the bread winner, caring for a child with a chronic illness and having a barrage of household bills each month, I couldn’t see any financial way I could walk away to start a business with that level of responsibility. There was more than just me to think about in this situation. Until…my executive-level position was eliminated and an attractive severance package was presented to me. That was all she wrote. I ran out of the door with that severance package, started my business and I haven’t looked back.
What do you love most about being an entrepreneur?
I absolutely love owning my own time without anyone dictating how it should be spent; having the flexibility to structure my day based on my projects and peak productivity times that work for me without having to explain myself; and choosing the type of clients and projects I accept that align with me working in my “zone of genius” to keep the “fire burning in my belly” as I use my God-given gifts of administration. Since I was a little girl, I’ve always loved organizing things, putting puzzles together and planning gatherings. Who knew I would parlay those same skills into creating strategic plans, implementing processes and executing ideas to build businesses all over the country and get paid doing it! This is another reason why I love being an entrepreneur.
What has been the most challenging aspect of being an entrepreneur?
Self-doubt and pricing my services appropriately have been challenges for me. I am a work in progress and continue to conquer these challenges by hiring people to assist me in these areas so I remain focused and future ready. I also have a strong support system consisting of my husband, immediate family and trusted business besties to help me along on my journey.
