Discuss a professional challenge and how you overcame it:
Professional challenges I have experienced is trying to do too many projects at once and having to take a few steps back because of situations arising within the business and making mistakes that would epically halt my business. Through this learning experience, I was able to learn to work at my own pace and not be influenced by others when concerning “MY Business”.
Now I am moving at my own pace which I feel is the right pace and my business is now headed in the right directions, I’m conducting more seminars, workshops, and speaking at conferences.
What is next for your brand/business in 2017?
Next for my Brand/Business for 2017 is I will be increasing my public speaking engagements, rebranding my product line company Calmè that contains Herbal Teas, Candles, and Calmè Kit (therapeutic relaxation and calming kit which contains products that promote a Calm and Stress Free Lifestyle). I will also introduce PhDiva Sessions, which will be Retreats and Women Seminars, Books and Journals. My Business Therapy/Mentoring will involve more Seminars and Workshops to help business owners with a diverse range of topics such as Working with Difficult Clients and The Art of Business Communication.
