Is there a website, blog or social media link where we can see more about your project and/or yourself?
What is your professional background? What were you doing before?
I use to be a daycare center teacher.
How did the entrepreneurial spirit rise up in you? Were you exposed to entrepreneurship in your family or your social environment when you were a child?
I've always wanted to be my own boss. To find a way to help people, the environment and make some money.
What have you achieved up to now? What have you yet to achieve?
My items are selling so that is good. I have yet to achieve to get the word out there to many about my affordable items, I am working on that.
Entrepreneurs have a reputation as "control freaks." How do you avoid that?
I'm always open to ideas from people around me and their opinion on my product line.
How do you balance work with relaxation?
I make "me" time everyday, which may consist of reading a book, talking my dog for a walk, visiting with family etc.
What is your main motivation: being your own boss, adventure and discovery, getting rich, doing good for others, or is there something else?
My main motivation is yes to be my own boss, to educate people on Eco-friendly products that help save money in their pocket book as help save the planet.
How important have PR and social media been for you?
They are very important if you want your business name to get out there and for people to see your products.
What would you call success? Where would you like your business to be five years from now?
Success for me, would be just be able to live a comfortable lifestyle, to just be able to pay my bills and have a little left over money to play with. I am not looking to get rich, I just want to stay a small company but dream big.
What skills would you advise a want-to-be-entrepreneur to acquire?
Lots of patience and willing to work long hours.
