My friends! They are practically my counselors for personal issues and business issues. Thank God for them!
What inspires you?
Current successful entrepreneurs inspire me, as far as entrepreneurship is concerned. When it comes to style inspiration, Pinterest of course. Some of my favorite bloggers are McKenna Bleu and Emily Ann Gemma. They wear things I can actually afford! I also like Stylish Petite and I just tend to look at successful boutiques and see what they are selling and what is new. That is how I figure what’s trendy.
What would you say to young people trying to accomplish the same things you did?
It is definitely possible and don’t worry about being too poor, too young, or not good enough. Because if I was able to do with only $350 in my bank account you can do it too!
What do you want people to know about entrepreneurship?
That it is not glamorous. There are many perks to owning your own business, but there are going to be some hard times and valleys to get to the top of the mountain–I hate to say that because it is so cliché–but it is going to take blood sweat and tears to get to where you want to go if you are actually passionate.
What is your favorite part of the creative process?
Imagining! Imaging what could be and what I can possibly innovate. I am definitely a dreamer and a doer.
How do you see yourself impacting people going forward?
By continuing to speak, inspiring others, and teaching them what I have learned so they will not make the same mistakes. I want to help students with small businesses get on their feet, and again, not make the same mistakes I made.
