What is your biggest challenge? How did you conquer it?

Taking a rest from work is a big challenge for me. I love what I do so much that it’s difficult to pull myself away from the projects. Even when I do get away, my brain is thinking of new ideas for my websites. To get my mind to take a break, my best tactics are to pray and go for a treatment at Big Sol Acupuncture.

If another woman in business asked for your best tip, what would it be?

Schedule one-to-one’s with other business people. When you’re having that meeting, don’t bring a sales pitch. Be ready to ask questions about the other person’s business and find out how you can best support what they’re doing. Develop relationships with people and genuinely listen to them. Even if you’re an introvert like me, you will find joy and reward in your business relationships.

Anything else you would like to add?

That being said, I cannot express enough gratitude to the countless people who’ve invested their own resources in helping me. No matter what your business is, it depends on people. They are the reasons we have hope for success.
