Tell us about yourself

My motto has always been to follow your dreams, or you’ll be working for someone that did. Monogram Markets just celebrated its 10th year in business, and it all started with an idea. Every day I love creating new ideas for other small and large businesses. Doing what you love is, in my opinion, your key to success.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

To be able to help other start-up companies with their own brand and bring their idea to life is a huge accomplishment for me. I firmly believe in helping others to be successful.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

One of the hardest things about being a business owner is the time you spend developing your business.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

First, never think you can’t; second, excellent customer service is key; and thirdly, always learn from your mistakes.

Is there anything else you'd like to share?

Having a business you truly love and helping others build their dream is a wish come true!
