What inspired you to become an entrepreneur?
For me, it was less of being “inspired to become an entrepreneur” and more of “discovering that I have always been an entrepreneur”. Again, for me, it was less of being “inspired to become an entrepreneur” and more of “becoming extremely dissatisfied with the status quo of being employed”. Being an employee was stifling for me. Over and over I felt that my employers undervalued, underappreciated and undercompensated my skills, effort, loyalty, attitude, work ethic and dedication – and all of that does not lead an individual to a very good place. Having discovered that I have a strong and true entrepreneurial spirit is empowering – personally, professionally and financially.
What’s the best part about owning your own business?
The best part of owning my own business is the creation of it. And what I’m talking about is more than just the creation of the products, service, policy and procedures; it is the creation of the mission, vision and values behind what my company does and how we do it – that’s the really satisfying part. As the business owner I am allowed to build my business with the character traits that I love; integrity, equity, usefulness, caring, creativity, team work, appreciation; I then let these character traits inform the products, services, policies and procedures I create. The best part of owning my business comes from this, knowing that the mind, heart and soul of my business in within my own quality control.
