2.) How long have you been an entrepreneur?
I have been an entrepreneur for over 13 years. I have had other businesses in the past, including a communications business and rental properties. Currently I have an Online Travel Agency, Online Flower Delivery service, and an Online Shopping Mall.
3.) What’s your favorite part of running your own business?
My favorite part is the freedom to make my own schedule, and take a day off (or end the day early) if I would like to.
4.) How did you get connected to Launchwise?
I was connected to Launchwise through Dara, whom I met at my weekly business networking meeting long ago.
5.) Who have you met at one of our events that you’re looking forward to staying connected with?
Cortez Wilson – owner of Right-Choice Movers. I believe we can help each other’s businesses in the near future.
6.) What business advice do you have for other entrepreneurs?
Continue to pursue your passion ..regardless of what others (including family members) may have to say. The average person does not have the vision, drive, perseverance or ambition to endure the challenges you will experience as an entrepreneur. So, their opinions, comments, questions, and fears really do not matter.
7.) Who is your entrepreneurial idol?
My entrepreneurial idol is Chris Gardner – Gardner Rich, LLC. His story is a remarkable one of perseverance, passion, drive, and ambition in the midst of adversity. You may have seen his movie – The Pursuit of Happiness.
8.) Do you have a favorite quote?
I have several, but my new favorite is one I just read:
The brick walls are not there to keep us out. They are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who do not want it badly enough.
9.) Who is your favorite singer/movie star/celebrity of all time & why?
My favorite celebrity “character” – if that’s okay – is Fred Sanford from Sanford & Son. The one thing I absolutely loved about Fred is that, regardless of what Lamont, Aunt Esther, Grady and everyone else said, he always tried a new way to make money outside of the Junk business. Albeit through various schemes and scams, he never gave up on trying something different!
