Question: What is the most important thing a new entrepreneur can do to be successful?

Leroy: I believe the most important thing that a new entrepreneur can do to be successful is to NEVER STOP BELIEVING!!! The Entrepreneurship journey is not an easy one. There are going to be what I call the 3 T’s of Entrepreneurship. They are TRIALS, TRIUMPHS, AND TESTIMONIES. Your Trials will test how determined you are to be an entrepreneur. Your Triumphs will give you encouragement to keep going even when you think you can’t go on anymore and your Testimonies will help you to impact others who maybe going through the same or similar experiences. I believe if you understand these three elements of entrepreneurship then you will be successful no matter what!!!


Question: What is the best business advice anyone ever gave you? 

Leroy: The best business advice anyone ever gave me was make sure that everyone brings something to the table. Whether it was developing partnerships, gaining customers or doing business with someone, be sure that they bring something to the table and that you bring something to the table. When everyone brings something to the table there is a vested interest on both parties so everyone will do or give their best. I have lived by this creed since I have started my business.
