What influenced you to begin your business? Were there any trials or struggles that led you to the place where you are now?
I have great ideas in my head but people did not want to listen to me. Those who did listen, tried my ideas for themselves. I felt alone, so, I decide to strike out. I have been in business for a long time and the road is not easy. There have been many trials, failures and yes, I have been penniless. But I am still here. There are times when you have to re-evaluate and ask yourself, ” Why are you doing this and not a 9 to 5 . Eventually, I had to go back to work and shut down the business. However, I am slowly getting back with a new attitude.
What are your business goals for the next 3-5 years?
My goals is to open a Medical Lifestyle Spa , where women can come and learn how to eat, exercise and reduce their stress. In addition , I see myself speaking across US.
