Do you have a business tip or tool that has helped you in your business?
I rely heavily on the art of conversation. It has helped me form the most relevant relationships in business. The easiest way to start a conversation is to talk about simple topics, and simply ask questions… “Have you ever been to…, do you like….., have you ever met…..?” My main conversation starter this summer was talking about my vegetable garden and inability to identify poison sumac. I was amazed by how many people were also trying to grow their own fruits and vegetables at home.
Do you have a quote to share and inspire other members?
“Never hesitate to ask!” This key phrase is applicable to all facets of business. Ask for business, ask for information, ask about the customer, and ask for help. If you do not start a conversation then you will never get an answer.
What is your go to business, mindset or productivity book that has helped you in your life and business?
I keep on reminding myself to just keep moving. It helps you to complete an endless to do list, keep yourself motivated, and progress onward and upward. I have been very fortunate to be surrounded by extremely motivated and energetic women (and men) in my life. I think about my mom raising three kids, starting a business from the ground up, and keeping care of the entire household. I think of both of my grandmothers who were a part of the work force when it was not the norm. I think of my sister’s continual dedication to get everything done. Also, my father never let any of us quit anything without a fight, and I approach each challenge as a battle between the task at hand and myself. Having worked in my family’s business, Cater 2U, since I was very young has given me a unique perspective on how to work and multitask across all business functions.
