Success Lifestyle Magazine Issue 6- October 2019 - Page 21

What products do you sell? I specialize in personalized cakes for all memorable occasions. These events tend to be weddings, baby showers, anniversaries and birthday parties. Clients are encouraged to place orders at least 3 weeks the latest before their events. What is the greatest challenge that you have had as an entrepreneur in Jamaica? Pricing. A lot of time goes into planning, designing, and executing the cakes. In fact, I’ve had many sleepless nights perfecting orders. I’m not producing factory type cakes like those sold at MegaMart and PriceSmart. Some people don’t understand this and think that I am overpriced. Issue �: October ���� Who is your greatest inspiration? Why? I could mention so many people but 2 people in particular stand out. My father because he is business- oriented, very organized and customer focus. I find that I am becoming so much like him as I develop my business. Mrs. Cargill. I have the utmost respect for her and try to emulate the techniques, values and principles she has taught me. What tip would you give to other entrepreneurs? Start a business that you are passionate about because your passion will take you through the difficult times. Stick with your vision and mission; never forget your why. How can you be contacted?
