How did 10KSB help you?
Attending the 10KSB Program definitely gave me more confidence in running my business. Most people fly by the seat of their pants in business; this program makes you look at every aspect of your business and then hopefully helps you make wise decisions.

Tell us about a challenge you’ve faced in your business.
My biggest challenges are the progress payments and cash flow. If all goes smoothly, it’s OK. But if projects get delayed, money doesn’t come in. I hate owing money, but know it is a part of owning a business.

What do you enjoy about being a small business owner?
Freedom. I love being in business because of the freedom it allows me. I love seeing projects going from inception to completion. My goal is always to make the client feel taken care of, love their environment and feel secure in our product choices. Being a relational person, I can surely put myself in my clients’ shoes.

Since graduating from the 10KSB Program, is there an accomplishment or goal you’re particularly proud of achieving?
I landed my biggest project so far which has made me more visible in my industry.
