7. What has the pandemic taught you about you and/or your business?
The pandemic has taught me a couple of things. First, is the importance of being patient and timing, with the services we offer not so many local businesses saw the importance of them until now, and we were able to help them transition.
Secondly, the importance of sound money management, to have money in the reserve for unforeseen circumstances.
Finally, the importance of community, coming together as a community of business owners and residents by helping local businesses to transition and staying afloat.
8. What advice would you share with other immigrant entrepreneurs in Alberta who want to start or grow their own business?
“Start Somewhere” is my business motto. Have faith and go for it, believe in your abilities. Have something for yourself, even if it is small. The worst regret is saying “I wish I knew”. It is better to be on the “I Tried” side of things.
Kobe Bryant said, “The biggest mistake we make in life is thinking we have time.”
Les Brown said, “If you fall, fall on your back. If you can look up, you can get up.”
9. How has Business Link/our Immigrant Entrepreneur Program helped you?
Business Link has been amazing, I have used their resources when I started, just to have an idea of what I needed. The webinars and most recently the Immigrant Entrepreneur Summit. These opportunities have helped me to connect with other entrepreneurs and put our business out there.
10. What’s coming up next for you?
I am looking to grow my business and be an integral part of my community as we continue to help local businesses. Employ new staff who share the same vision as me to help local businesses with mobile technology.
11. Anything else you would like to share?
Just wanted to let everyone know; In life, no one is coming to save us, we must be the ones to initiate what we want in life and thus the world will give it to us. And it all starts with our God-given mindset, change your mindset and your life will change.
