Why did you create your business?
“I began my business simply because the Lord led me to. I never in my wildest dreams would have thought I’d be doing what I am doing now, but I feel like the most blessed person on the planet that I get to do what I do.”
What is the one scripture (or two) that you draw strength from?
“Matthew 6:33 and Psalm 62:1-2”
Share the best advice you can share with an entrepreneur?
“Don’t lose focus on what God has called you to do. Keep your eyes on Jesus!”
Have an interesting tidbit about your business or yourself that you would like to add?
“The name of my business (Five Feet Twenty) comes from my height. I am rather tall and get asked often how tall I am and I respond, “I’m five feet twenty.” That equates to six feet eight inches.”
