Donna, can you start by telling us about your company?
My company is 3 companies in one. Empowering one woman at a time. All women of every shape, size, color and religion. I love sharing empowerment, confidence, self esteem and self worth. I share with women, American Royal Spirit Pageants, SewSpecial Designs . seamstress extraordinaire, Paparazzi Accessories.
What motivated and inspired you to start your business?
My daughter has inspired me. Seeing a lack of self confidence through bullying. I really see the lack of self confidence in girls, young ladies and women, due to upbringing, or bullying and really want to make a difference so this person can be the best they can be whether it is through clothing, jewelry, pageantry or guidance. When you look good, you feel good and the confidence automatically starts to shine.
How do you distinguish yourself from your competitors?
I believe I am unique as far as my abilities to help ALL females of ALL ages in many different ways.
What advice would you give to other entrepreneurs?
Go for it. Dive right in. Stay focused on your goal and join I'm Possible Women's Empowerment Collaborative.
How do you keep motivated through difficult times?
It's a little hard, especially right now with COVID19. Also especially since one of my organizations is about volunteerism. I personally read a lot of motivational quotes, I keep my faith. I also put on my big girl panties and deal with it.
What are you most proud of as a company?
Seeing the self confidence emerge from a person that is not sure of themselves. A female becoming self confident that she can go on with her held up high, her dreams in her pocket and make those dreams a reality.
Where do you see your company in the next three years?
I am a work in process. I just want to be happy and healthy. I am blessed already with my family and friends.
What is your favorite quote and why?
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I can not change, the Courage to change the things I can and the Wisdom to know the difference.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I love being with family and friends. I love creating new things through crafting.
What fun unknown factoid could you share that most people may not know? This could be professional or personal.
I make Angel Baby Gowns in honor of my sister Kathleen. There is no greater gift than giving a family the gift of angel gown to bury there blessed baby in.
