Meet Miriam: Q&A
Question: Have you always had an entrepreneurial spirit?
Miriam: Yes, at 13 years old I would help my mother run her own small business. When she was traveling, I would handle the day-to-day operations, from designing the product to delivery to customers.
Q: Did you have a business mentor or someone in your life who inspired you to pursue business-ownership?
M: Yes, Daymond John - the founder of FUBU and current Shark Tank host! We met in Miami and he would give advice often and he inspired me to become a business owner.
Q: You and Sean work side-by-side daily, and you have family members involved elsewhere in company - what’s it like working with your family on a regular basis?
M: My husband is my best and only partner - in business and in life. My sister and brother-in-law have been with us from the beginning and helped us build the company into what it is today. Sometimes stressful but always rewarding. I am blessed to work with them each and everyday.
Q: Who’s your favorite author?
M: Right now, I would say Eric Metaxas.
Q: Do you have any side projects or organizations you’re involved with or would like to promote?
M: Yes, personally I volunteer at our church, World Outreach. Additionally, our company is involved with Greenhouse Ministries out of Murfreesboro and Maasay Yahdav, a fantastic organization that offers humanitarian aid to Israel.
Q: Do you have any tips for specifically girls/women out there who want to start their own business? Anything you wish you would have known when you were starting out?
M: Find something you enjoy doing, but equally important, you need to find the right team. You cannot do it alone.
