FashionInkFitness: What advice would you give to those trying to start their own business or words of wisdom to those that already have a business.
Exquisite Cakery: I would say most companies aren’t loyal to their employees so why not invest your time and energy into your own business. I’m not trying to sound like nike but seriously just do it! If your not comfortable with quitting your job you can still work on your business on the side until you make enough to cover your bills. I can’t stress this enough, I know it’s hard but please stay motivated don’t let the negative thoughts from others or yourself stop you. It’s easy to quit but even harder to keep going when your not where you want to be. This journey is what you make it and what you put fourth. If you want it I know you will find a way to make it happen. There is nothing you can’t do and no one can stop you but you.
FashionInkFitness: What motivates you to keep going?
Exquisite Cakery: My partner and the continous support from my loyal customers. They continue to push me pass my comfort zone and refer other loyal customers without me even asking. I put so much into every customized cake I create and that’s what my customers really appreciate.
FashionInkFitness: How long have you had your business? How old are you?
Exquisite Cakery: It’s been six months since I’ve made it public and I’m 25 years old.
FashionInkFitness: What sets you apart from other business owners?
Exquisite Cakery: I’m consistent with my craft and perfection is’t important to me. I don’t let perfection stop me from reaching my full potential like most people.
