How ODU Women's Business Center helped Sara with her business: "The Women's Business Center at Old Dominion University has been extremely helpful to my business by offering excellent training programs and free resources on how to run my business successfully. I attended training sessions on various topics such as social media tips; how to protect your brand and how to sell to Virginia State Agencies, Colleges/Universities, and local governments."

What has been the toughest obstacle in starting her business: "My biggest obstacle in starting my business was having adequate workspace and equipment to do my work."

Sara's advice for someone starting a business:

  • Find a mentor who is working in the same industry/medium.
  • Remain flexible yet focused in order for your business to grow successfully.
  • Be open and flexible to change. I find myself adapting to changes in the market in order to stay current with the needs and wants of customers and new trends.
  • Listen...Listen...Listen. You will go so much further with your business if you listen to advice or feedback from other seasoned artists/business owners. It will save you time and money in the end.
  • Network...Network...Network!
  • Go to the Women's Business Center at Old Dominion University so that they can assist you with your business startup from beginning to end!
