What’s your biggest accomplishment? I’m going to go out on a limb and assume you’re referring to something other than giving birth 3 times. 🙂 Right now, my biggest accomplishment is starting a shop and sticking with it. I have enjoyed watching my shop grow and watching myself grow in the process!
What are three books you would recommend to our readers? OMG, you do not want me to answer this! Seriously.
What’s the biggest lesson you have learned since launching? “There is enough for everyone”. I actually learned this a while ago from a friend. So many people think that you’re trying to out-do them. There really is enough to go around!
What’s your advice to someone interested in starting their own business? Just do it! Find someone in the field that you look up to and reach out to them. “Decide that you want it more than you’re afraid of it.” -Bill Cosby
Where do you receive inspiration? EVERYWHERE! Magazines, fashion bloggers, interior designers and bloggers, every day life, etc.
If you could have one famous entrepreneur as your mentor who would it be? Beyoncé. Not because she is Beyoncé, but because of her drive. She works super hard to be as great as she is. When I’m tired and don’t want to look at the computer anymore or respond to another email, I think of her and how much more work she put in than I do, and I keep going.
Do you feel your life is balanced between work life and personal life? NOT AT ALL!!!! I just emailed a friend and told her that I think having and finding balance is a lie, lol! This venture is definitely a struggle as it relates to my personal life because I am a wife and mother and for a few years, that was all I considered myself. With my new “job/title”, I have more responsibility which means I forget things that I once was on top of and other things aren’t as big of deal now (like dishes left in the sink!).
What is your most indispensable gadget: My iPhone ( I can’t put this thing down!)
What’s your favorite app? Because I’m always pressed for time, my Etsy and Flipboard apps are my favs. I can upload items to my shop on the go with my ipad and flip through my favorite blogs.
What’s your favorite account to follow on Twitter: I really don’t use twitter other than tweets for my shop.
What’s your favorite item in your closet: My Michael Kors boots. I wear those things like they’re sneakers!
