What are you most looking forward to doing in EO?
SH: I am excited to spend quality time with likeminded individuals who understand the blood, sweat and tears of being an entrepreneur because they have lived, and are currently living, the dream! I’m looking forward to meeting and learning from highly successful business people in unique and interactive ways.
What do you like most about being an entrepreneur?
SH: I love the feeling of building something from the ground up, knowing that there isn’t another business on the planet exactly like mine. There are also a lot of perks to being an entrepreneur. For example, some of my most creative business-visioning sessions occur at the spa, which a traditional employer might not appreciate!
What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learned in business?
SH: Definitely to be yourself, create your vision and don’t listen to the naysayers. We’ve recently enjoyed the best two years in our company’s 20-year history in a down economy, and I believe a lot of that is due to our positive outlook and approach. Also, you can’t say “thank you” enough to your staff and clients.
Where do you see your business five years from now?
SH: Five years from now, I see our firm expanding into regional, and possibly national, markets, with a focus in the entertainment and government sectors. If you haven’t visited a boutique bowling center lately, you’re in for quite a treat!
