How’s business: Great, all I needed was a few cooler days to get y’all thinking about winter clothes. Seriously, business is up and running after reopening July 1.

One thing you wish everyone knew about your business: How well clothing will look, fit and feel after having being tailored to custom fit your body. After all, no two of us are exactly alike.

Something you offer that a customer won’t find elsewhere: Me. Can’t find me anywhere else. Just kidding. Excellent customer service with a smile. Great looking.

Advice to young entrepreneurs: Be willing to work long hard hours

Your first job: Babysitting for most of my neighbors’ children… Made great money, too.

Your role model (in business or in life generally):

The key to a successful business is: Hard work, remembering that it won’t run without you. Make time for yourself — don’t get stressed out — go to the beach.
