Share a business lesson you have learned: I have so many, yet I would say, “Know Your Worth”! I believe that’s the most important one. I have met with people that did not value my services and would ask for discounts or give me a low-ball offer. I had to speak up and sometime walk away. I have grown in this area so much.
Are you from the South Bend-Elkhart region?/ Why did you come or stay in the area?:Why I moved to this area, I fell in love with my home and the space it has to offer. I really didn’t know South Bend. I am thankful that I didn’t know. Even though I believe South Bend has a lot to improve on, I also believe it has a lot to offer. South Bend is a place of opportunity for small business. South Bend offers opportunities to grow within yourself, to find like-minded people and build a community, which in return will improve South Bend. It has taught me there’s more to life than just getting by and existing. It has forced me to look for the good in humans and to unite on our common beliefs.
Share your favorite business resource. Why is it your favorite?: I have two: Youtube and HustleSBE. YouTube gives me access to industry knowledge and inspirational videos. It helps me see that other people in the WORLD are living their dreams through their business. HustleSBE workshop helped me by encouraging me individually and networking with other businesses within my community. I got to see myself and other business owners that were in similar levels as me. Each week I got to be encouraged, learn new skills and focus on my business. I had friends to bounce ideas from. The HustleSBE group was my accountability partners. They became someone outside of my family and friends that believe in me and Blossom Cleaning and Organizing, LLC. I felt supported.
