What services have you utilized at SOURCE RW and how have you benefited?
I was a part of the Kauffman Business Owners Series, but beforehand I attended several business workshops. Also, I have a great business coach, Sarah MacInnis of BOI, who provides open, honest, and useful information for new business owners like myself.
What made you interested in being a business owner?
Being a business owner came from my passion and dedication working in the healthcare field. I have always enjoyed working and helping others. Working in many healthcare settings and seeing different health emergencies occur gave me the drive to pursue my dream.
What have you enjoyed most about being a business owner?
Believe it or not I’ve enjoyed the process it takes to become a successful business owner. I’ve learned so much on this journey and met some great networks along the way.
What have you enjoyed least about being a business owner?
Although it’s rewarding and worthwhile it can be a bit challenging and intimidating when you’re in the start-up stage or even thereafter. I say this because you should be different from your competitors.
Was there ever a point when you wanted to quit?
Of course! I still struggle with that now sometimes, but I always think back to what I read in The Secret by Rhonda Byrne. In essence, “The law of attraction states that what you think and feel determines what you’ll attract into your life.” That alone makes me shift my mindsight to what I want my business to become along the way; which is successful.
Was there ever a point when you realized you had “made it.”
In all honesty I’m not there yet, however I’m on the path to that moment. Opportunities like this lets me know I’m headed in the right direction.
If you could tell aspiring business owners just one thing before their journey – that you had wished you had known prior to starting your journey – what would that be?
I would say connect with someone who is successful in the industry you’re starting your business. Whether it be through social media outlets, business groups or workshops. Also, stay the course and never give up on your dream. In the words of Denise Heard, “This is your baby and you want it to live on with great success”.
