Let's dive into the interview!
What are you currently doing as an entrepreneur and how long have you been involved with this particular endeavor and what inspired you to pursue it?
In 2019, after two decades in the Operating Room left me burnt out, I shifted towards entrepreneurship, aiming for freedom and the opportunity to pursue my passion for healthy living and helping others succeed.
Describe your typical daily routine, including your morning and evening habits? Are there any specific habits and/or routines that particularly contribute to your business success and your peace of mind within your busy schedule?
Every morning begins with prayer on an hour-long walk, during which I might also listen to my Bible app, devotionals, audiobooks or work on personal business development. Lunch breaks are spent answering messages or engaging on social media. Evenings consist of blending family time with cooking, errands, and focusing on business during a Power Hour. My priorities are my faith, family, fitness, and maintaining a clean diet.
What are the top three sources that inspire you in your business journey, whether individuals, experiences, locations, etc?
My top three sources that inspire my business journey are 1) Support from industry leaders in the form of Summits, Challenges, Programs or short trainings. 2) Self-Development books geared towards entrepreneurship and 3) Prayer and Bible Study that is focused on Entrepreneurship and God's plan for my business.
Are there any business tools or resources that you rely on to facilitate your day-to-today operations?
I religiously use apps and websites such as Boards, Canva, Google Drive, Zoom, and Trello.
Throughout your journey as an entrepreneur, what are key lessons you have learned that have steered you to your current success?
- Don't compare my progress to others.
- Prioritize Christ in all aspects of life and business.
- Incorporate work into idle moments like waiting times or commuting.
On challenging days, weeks, or months, have you ever contemplated giving up? If so, how do you gather your strength and remain resilient to continue to pursue your entrepreneurial journey?
Sure, I consider the Scripture “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” when doubts creep in. I'm aware the enemy will try to distract me from my divine purpose, so I diligently wear the Armor of God to stay focused on Him. Regularly, I stay motivated and empowered by learning from industry leaders, ensuring persistence in my journey, regardless of my emotions.
To round off, let's bring in a few personal aspects. What's your definition of success? Do you have a personal mantra that you live by? Can you also share a recent or favorite book you read that provided you with new insights or perspectives?
My definition of success contradicts society's view, focused on material wealth. While appreciating such luxuries, for me, true success lies in fulfilling God's purpose, utilizing His gifts, and earning His recognition, “Well done my good and faithful servant, you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things.”
