A: Sky's the Limit staff and connections from the platform, including mentor Martha Zapata have been helpful. They pointed me to resources that were helpful for me to build my business and stay encouraged during this process
Q: What’s the #1 challenge you’ve faced, and how’d you overcome it?
A: Funding — Sky's the Limit and other such organizations have helped tremendously.
Q: How did you approach funding for your business?
A: Initially, bootstrapping, then pitch competitions, and grants. Sky's the Limit awarded me with a grant that came at a time where I was really discouraged. I felt like God was saying, "I see you. You're on to something...Don't stop."
Q: How do you manage your time between working on your business and other aspects of your life?
A: It's a learning process, but I have the support of a coach who helps me to navigate this. I couldn't do it without her.
Q: Any words of wisdom or inspiration you’d give someone just starting out?
