How do you motivate yourself to succeed?
I try to do my best every day and work hard for my patients. I succeed when they succeed which means working toward a mutual goal of optimal oral health.
What is the current business goal you are looking to achieve?
I am looking to create a practice that patients enjoy visiting and see us as part of their regiment in order to maintain oral health.
What constitutes a perfect day for you?
A perfect day for me does not consist of being at the office – it would be spending time with my loved ones – I am blessed to have Nichole, Clover and Caden in my life and time with them would constitute my perfect day.
In one word, describe your personality?
Who is your greatest inspiration?
My inspiration to get up and work hard every day is my family. I love taking care of my patients and helping them acquire optimal oral health but at the end of the day my family is what inspires me!
What is your idea of perfect happiness?
Finding a perfect balance in work and personal life and allowing the two to co-mingle in a very minor capacity. It would include surrounding myself with folks that I can trust to get things done which would lessen more workload.
How do you generate new ideas for your business?
Talking with my mentors, colleagues and friends in the industry.
What has been your most treasured journey to date?
Probably the journey of starting a practice from scratch – this has been a heck of a ride as things have matured into what they are today.
What sacrifices have you made to become a successful business owner?
I have given up much of my time and worked very hard every day since I opened the practice – as a small business owner you are always working on your business.
If you could start again, would you change anything?
I am sure I would, specifically hard to say but I learned a ton and hindsight is always 20/20 .
What advice would you give to young and aspiring business owners?
Have a distinct vision and plan in order to execute.
