Anything you would have done differently?
My idea was to stay at my corporate job to save money to open but then the company closed down with no warning.

What's next on the horizon for your biz?
Up next is hiring some employees and moving into an office space.

Is there any one person or event in your life that led you to go into business for yourself?
I wanted to go into business for myself once my son was diagnosed with epilepsy so I could have the flexibility to be at home more with him.

Anyone you publicly want to thank?
Hi to all that said I couldn't get my Bachelor's or Master's while being a single mom and working full-time.
