Q: What advice do you have for a WBE attending their first Conference?

Do your homework before attending, be prepared, and stay opened minded. Look at the conference as a learning experience to network and learn from other WBEs.

Q: What are some of the bigger challenges and barriers you’ve faced as a business owner? How have you overcome them?

Finding a healthy balance between work and taking time for myself is the biggest challenge I’ve faced.  I quickly learned that I would not be in business long if I didn’t have this balance.  I now understand what Einstein said regarding his best ideas: they don’t always come when you’re working and looking for them. Instead, it has been in those moments of rest and relaxation that my most creative and innovative ideas have surfaced. Taking time off also made me put the right people in place even when I did not think that I had the budget to support this. I now know that I can’t afford to run a business without the right people. Delegating has given me more time to be creative and take the business to another level at a much faster rate.

Q: What advice do you have for a new entrepreneur?

Align yourself with people who have the skills and knowledge that you might be lacking. Be willing to let go of some responsibilities and delegate so you can focus on scaling the company.
