I am a 38 year old, single hard working mother of 1 young man and 2 daughters that keeps me very busy. I have also been a pharmacy technician for over 10yrs. Additionally, Im a Certified Travel Agent with Xstream and President of Abetterway2foundation a Non Profit Organization.
Wow you certainly wear many hats! Has balancing your time between work and motherhood been challenging?
With my son, it's a no brainer, he understands what it takes to become and enterpunerser as he wants to become one himself. My daughters are a little younger and needer at the moment. They require just a little more attention. Homework, activities etc can take a toll when trying to build a legacy. Im trying to organize family and business while keeping the right mindset for what im trying to leave for them.
Thats awesome...Who or What keeps you motivated when you feel discouraged? My kids of course as well as my mentors, leaders, and accountability partners within our company. I would also say fellow entrepreneurs that I know.
I love that..What advice would you give fellow entrepreneurs about the importance of patience and timing?
You will be tested all the time. Your business and the support you may or may not recieve, the ups and downs of running an business and at the end of the day, if this is something you truly want, patience and timing is everything. Nothing is given to us when want it. It comes when you work for it and need it.
So true..So I believe that everyone is born with special gifts and talents which gives us all our own unique super powers to do anything in this life. What would you say your LOOKprenuer Super Powers are? I try my best to help and encourage others as much as possible

Thats great! Now lets have some fun. Tell us something most people don’t know about You?
I never thought about being an entrepreneur, I knew I was destined to help others, but not like this!
