Q. How long have you had your own business?
A: I have owned TravelbyLisaH for a year now. But I have been traveling for over 20 years
Q. What challenges do you face owning your own business?
A. Social media and access to the internet is a great blessing and it provides great opportunities for marketing but it’s also a curse because people have access to do their own research for vacations. But with my business I look to building relationships, having deals as a certified travel agent that consumers can’t get. I look to do all the leg work so my clients have time for other things
Q. What goals do you hope to accomplish within the next year?
A. I hope to continue to grow and build my travel business, to finally complete my degree after 30 years of attempting (finishing in June 2016)
Q. What advice would you give young ladies on a similar path as you?
A. My advice would be to keep pushing. Never give up on your dreams and your goals. My advice would be even if things don’t work out don’t let that stop you, failure isn’t attempting something and it not working out, failure is not even trying
Q. Top 3 inspirations (People or things)
A. My faith is my biggest inspiration. My children would be my next inspiration. They inspire me to push harder and to be the best me simply because they have so much faith in me. My Friends and Family would be my next inspiration. People say women can’t get along, yet I have a group of women that I love like sisters and we all motivate and inspire each other.
