Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Melissa Sims, Founder of Sims Solutions LLC, located in Burleson, TX, USA.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

My company was established in 2004 and offers custom websites, proper Organic SEO (search engine optimization) including Google My Business (profile), social media, and all of the components required to be on the world wide web, including domain registrant, hosting, SSL, security, and email. We offer compressed 'Web Site' graphics and Vector print graphics.

Tell us about yourself

My business started while I was a stay-at-home parent and has grown to be an asset for many entrepreneurs. Established in 2004 and a Women-Owned Business registered with HUB.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Helping companies be visible and thrive on the Internet.

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

Not getting run down or exhausted because you are responsible for everything. Until you designate, you get the job, perform the job, bill the job, maintain the position, and collect the job. Everything has to be done, and if you don't do it, everything can fail.

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

  1. Be super organized.
  2. Take on what you can handle.
  3. Realize when you need to say no and avoid clients that are not a good fit.

Is there anything else you'd like to share?

Today's yellow page is the Internet. Every business should have a professional website to show a serious overtone of status because there are too many gimmicks. You have one chance. If you want to rely on social media only, you should, at a minimum, have a domain name that directs to your content.

Where can people find you and your business?
