How’s business? It’s beginning, ready to take off. But I’m not in charge, God is.
One thing you wish everyone knew about your business: That I’ve been in home care since 1994. I have been managing home care since 2003. I feel it’s my life calling. We are a non-profit and we’ll be here forever. It’s not my company – it’s Polk County’s.
Something you offer that a customer won’t find elsewhere: Offering local home care to local people. There are plenty of national companies, but we’re the only local one and I think that’s very important.
Advice to young entrepreneurs: Take your time. What you love in your 20s, you may not love in your 40s and beyond.
My first job: My first real job was researching land deeds in Henderson County. But I really started picking beans for my dad for $0.25 a bushel.
Your role model (in business or in life generally): That would have to be my parents. They raised four kids, built a home and lived their lives without any debt.
The key to a successful business: Hard work and no planning on getting rich.
