What inspired you to become a CEO?
For many years I worked in the senior care industry in mid-level management. It was a rewarding but frustrating experience. Oftentimes I felt my hands were tied in providing the best care possible for residents. It was at this time I began thinking about having my own business. After transitioning to health & wellness I knew it was time to step out and do things on my own.
If you could share business advice with yourself 10 years ago, what would you say?
Starting a business is a great undertaking. There are days when it’s rewarding and times when you’re ready to call it quits. Perfecting your craft is important and most CEOs focus primarily on this while neglecting to develop a skill set of attracting your ideal client. Learn the art of marketing and advertising so attracting your ideal market happens organically. Most small businesses fail due to lack of capital secure funds to give your business a successful start.
With this being the month of love, how do you feel self-love affects our entrepreneur journey?
Self-love isn’t optional for the CEO. Loving yourself enables you to provide the best customer service experience. When I am practicing self-love it’s natural for me to show up as my best self. Our energy radiates and others can sense when we genuinely love ourselves. My journey as a CEO/entrepreneur is continually improving due to my heightened self-care practices which includes self-love.
What are you looking forward to most in 2020?
This year is off to a great start! What’s most exciting is the opportunity to become a full time CEO. The journey of owning a business has many peaks and valleys. When you realize all the hard work is starting to pay off it serves as a reminder that you are walking in purpose.
