How did your business get started?
It all started when I was 21. My friends dared me to apply for a roofing company. When I got the job, I decided to give it a shot and well let’s just say my path changed and I was now interested in construction. Giving me a whole new direction in life, and now the ability to start my own company.
What was your biggest startup challenge? What steps did you take to overcome it? What did you learn?
As a woman in construction, coming into a man’s world was difficult especially when there aren’t many women in construction to start with. There were days I wanted to quit. I felt alone. What gave me the strength to overcome the fear of not succeeding in a place not many women dare to cross was Ronda Rousey. She is the first woman to become a two-division UFC champion, and the third fighter in the UFC history to hold titles in two weight classes simultaneously, after Conor McGregor and Daniel Cormier. She entered a man’s world where many doubted her and now, she is a legend.
How does your business benefit the community?
