  • What is one piece of software or a web service that helps you be productive?

    Salesforce.com. We started using Salesforce as our CRM a few years ago. It provides the leading tools that help us manage our leads, customers, and daily tasks. We have different lists (customers, vendors, tutors, leads, etc.), which helps us keep all communication organized.

  • What is one business idea that you’re willing to give away to our readers?

    Virtual reality events. Partner up with event spaces and sell access to attend events from the comfort of your own home using a VR headset. People are getting used to staying at home, but still want to experience live events – this is one way of accomplishing that!

  • As an entrepreneur, what is the one thing you do over and over and recommend everyone else do?

    Trust yourself. Being a successful entrepreneur means that you learn to listen to your intuition and rely on your judgment when making decisions. Your ability to believe in yourself will show your confidence. People are more likely to follow and trust confident leaders.

  • What advice would you give your younger self?

    Trust your gut, and don’t be afraid to take a risk. A risk at 22 has far less impact than risk at 40. Risks don’t have to be financial but can be an untraditional path you take.

  • What is one habit of yours that makes you more productive as an entrepreneur?

    Teamwork. As a small business owner, the one habit of being more productive is to delegate tasks to other team members, trust them in doing a great job, and not micromanage every employee.

  • How do you bring ideas to life?

    I first research the idea and gather supporting data before investing time, money, and energy. Then, if I’m confident the idea is worth putting into full production, I map out a plan of action (we use Monday.com). Lastly, it’s time to launch and monitor the results.

  • What does your typical day look like and how do you make it productive?

    As a small business owner, I wear a lot of hats. A typical day includes connecting with the team members first thing in the morning, client calls and responding to emails, marketing meetings, press interviews, and dozens of other things that advance the progress of the business. I make the days productive by “Planning tomorrow – tonight.” When I arrange at least a couple of tasks or goals for the next day before going to bed, I’m more likely to wake up and start on the day’s projects at hand.
