Q: What was the best business advice you ever received?
Never miss a local story.
A: Focus on sustainability.

A: I would be a fashion designer. I love fashion, I love clothes and love to put it all together.
Q: What is the biggest risk you’ve taken in your career?
A: Stepping out on faith and starting the Manatee County Black Chamber of Commerce. It was something that was not done before. I didn’t have the local support and had to go on a national level to start this.
