Why did you create your business?
“I created my business to help and train others in the area of technology.”
What is the one scripture (or two) that you draw strength from?
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” Philippians 4:13 (KJV).
Share the best advice you can with an entrepreneur.
“The best advice I can share with an entrepreneur is you have to set goals or reset your goals even when you miss them and do not get discourage but lessons learn and build upon it to strengthen you. Sometimes you have to crawl, walk, and then start running with an unstoppable mind.
“When challenges happen, do not get discourage. Just change your focus into positive energies and divine strategies to get through them. You may have to re-position yourself geographically, but never fear the unknown and never fear to be successful! Great leaders endure. Be empowered, encouraged and enlighten!”
Have an interesting tidbit about your business or yourself that you would like to add?
“I am an ordained minister, and I enjoy working in the ministry, the arts, cooking, song writing, geek gadgets, and technology.”
