Tanya’s Tips for Other Women Thinking of Starting a Business

If you’re passionate about what you want to do, DO IT NOW! You will never be too prepared for it. 

1 day at a time… don’t overwhelm yourself! It’s OK to not have all the answers.

Building genuine relationships are a key to your success.

I live by this quote: “Keep your head, heels & standards high” by Coco Chanel.

My mom taught me to keep persevering, and my dad taught me to be humble – I believe that’s what really stuck with me and keeps me going.
