Ronalda R. Minnis – CEO and Owner of Minnis Consulting
Regularly we interview a successful SOURCE RW client to ask how SOURCE RW has impacted their business. This month, we feature Ronalda Minnis, owner of Minnis Consulting, which she started earlier in 2018.
What services have you utilized at SOURCE RW and how have you benefited?
At SOURCE RW, I participated in the Kauffman FastTrac® New Venture Series. It was very insightful and informative on starting a business. I have also attended several workshops and seminars. Both offered great information and takeaways that I am utilizing in my journey in building my business. I have signed up for the Mentor Connect program and am looking forward to the assistance.
What made you interested in being a business owner?
My position was recently eliminated. After thinking about what was next on the horizon for me, I decided I wanted to go down the path of owning my own business.
What have you enjoyed most about being a business owner?
Developing an understanding of what it takes to own and operate a successful businesses; and identifying new potential business relationships while exploring opportunities with both potential clients and diverse suppliers.
What have you enjoyed least about being a business owner?
The least liked has been self-doubt from time to time. So glad I have friends who encourage me that “I can do this.”
Was there ever a point when you wanted to quit?
I wouldn’t say I wanted to quit, however, I did have some doubts regarding starting my own business.
Was there ever a point where you realized you had “made it.”
I am not there yet, but my vision to succeed is developing and on the horizon.
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?
Be fully committed, have perseverance and enjoy your new venture!
