Why are you so passionate about helping others?

I am so passionate about helping others because I know how it feels when you need help, and no one is there to provide services. I feel as though my purpose is to give back to others as God has blessed me to do so.

Where do you see yourself in the next 2 years? 5 years?

In the next 2 to 5 years, I see myself teaching along with Mya helping as many businesses as we can to attain the results, they are striving to achieve. I see us traveling internationally and hosting conferences that will reach and help many businesses.

How do you handle setbacks in this Entrepreneurial life?

I think setbacks are a way for me to examine my current situation and revisiting what could be enhanced/tweaked to do it better. I am never disappointed if something doesn’t go the way that I planned as I must remind myself that something is waiting for me that is greater than I expected.

What advice would you give to that person whose business is not doing so great and wants to give up?

My advice would be to ask them to remember why they chose to go into business in the first place. I would tell them to not give up and their breakthrough is right around the corner. Being an entrepreneur is hard work and it takes a special type of person to withstand the setbacks, heartaches, and the fear of unknown. However, continuing the pursuit is far more worth it than giving up. Giving up is easy, but the consistent grind is what determines who will succeed and who won’t.

What does it take to have a successful business?

It takes hard work, persistence, and consistency to have a successful business. Having knowledge and a team of people who know more than me is my secret sauce to a successful business. Acknowledging that I am not an expert in every field and being able to step back and allow others to do what they are hired to do.
