Advice to young entrepreneurs: You have a long life ahead…. find something you love to do. It might not be the first thing you try- in fact it rarely is. Everyone benefits when you are satisfied with your job and it makes all the hard work well worth it.
My first job: My first job was working as a registered nurse in a newborn nursery and helping parents learn to care for their new baby. It was my first job in a wonderful 30-year nursing career before becoming a professional full-time dog groomer.
Your role model (in business or in life generally): The person who has most helped make me a warm, caring person was my mom. Her unconditional love, support and belief that I could succeed at anything I wanted gave me the freedom to develop into the best I could be.
The key to a successful business: No matter how many times this has been said I still believe that treating your customers/clients with the respect we all deserve is one of the most important aspects to running a successful business.
