What was your child hood aspirations?
When I was a child I would make pop up greeting cards using different color poster boards. Come every holiday, birthday, I would always make a pop- up greeting card for a relative. I remember at 10 years old for my great aunt’s birthday I made her a pop up card with great details, it was a picnic area with a basket, blanket, food, cups. I had made it all 3 dimensional with movable pieces. She was so supportive encouraging me from such a young age how I can develop and make my craft into a business. Looking back I’m so grateful for her inception of infinite potentiality.
Can you give our readers a quick answer on business advice ?
From my experience as an entrepreneur. Every time you think to yourself, “I know this already” or “This just isn’t for me” try turning it around by asking yourself , “How can I make this work for me”? This automatically puts you into a learning mindset and helps you see opportunities everywhere.
What was your toughest challenge?
The biggest challenge I overcame as an entrepreneur was finding work-life balance. Having a family of 5 and working from home can sometimes fuze everything together. Scheduling is everything! Things aren’t always going to go according to plan but following a timely fashion and taking the time to turn off and enjoy your loved ones brings balance in unison with harmony.
