What made you choose this career?
I chose this career because I’ve always had a passion for helping others. My first job was working in a sandwich shop, and I really loved the connections that I made with my customers. When I learned of Clean Eatz, I was in the middle of my fitness journey of trying to get back into shape after having my second daughter. I knew Clean Eatz would help me achieve my goals, but I also wanted to help others achieve theirs.
What is the most rewarding thing about your career?
The personal and professional freedom, including the chance to manage work-life balance. Before owning Clean Eatz, I was never able to balance work and being a fulltime mom. Being my own boss has given me the opportunity to be present for my children more, which is very important to me.
What has been your biggest challenge?
Securing funding after COVID-19 hit. Nobody wanted to take the chance on a new and upcoming business. I went through 10 banks before getting final approval. I stayed persistent and never gave up. I am so glad I kept pushing because it has been so rewarding watching my business grow over the last 2 years. What does being a woman business owner mean to you? To me, it is empowering. I want to be a role model for other women who may want to pursue their dreams and start their own businesses one day.
What advice do you have for women looking to become an entrepreneur?
Build a winning team. It’s crucial for success because you’re only as good as the team you have behind you, and you can’t do it all by yourself.
