How To Deal With Competition As A Small Business Owner

How to deal with competition in your business

Hey hey hey!

How are you? I am doing pretty well, thanks for asking!

I want to have with my aspiring entrepreneurs and business owners out there.

It was sparked by a conversation I had last week with one of my clients.

She has been in business for a while. She has a committed clientele who values her work and she now is in a position where she is able to offer better quality to her customers, due to all the support she has been receiving!

As I am listening to her share her story, I am like, “Okay. What is the problem?”

She stated that she is now noticing that other people want to start their own business.

The same business that she has spent years developing.

Not only do they want to start their own business but, many people are coming to her for advice and she doesn’t feel comfortable sharing the information that she had to learn on her own.

Being as though she is from a small city, she does not know how to treat the competition when they come to her for advice on how to start their business.

Hearing her story made me think back and see if I ever had this feeling in me.

And yup. I sure did!

I remember when I first opened up my mobile food cart.

I was the only Black owned mobile food cart owner in the City of Wilmington.

Boss Mom: Find Your Tribe of Support.

Hey hey!

Happy Wednesday!

It’s a great day to be your own BOSS!

I normally say it is a great day to be alive, but I switched it up today lol.

Any who, let’s get into it

I know you have dreams of being of your own boss.

You want to spend more time with your family, be in control of your own time, and live life on your own terms.

I get it.

I was there.

The thing is tho’.

For this to happen to you

You cannot do it by yourself.

You need a support system.

In order for me to work long hours, attend business and personal development conferences, travel for leisure, engage in self-care practices, or do whatever else I have and want to do.

I have to have help.

If I didn’t I would go crazy.

Now I understand that everybody isn’t in the perfect situation.

I get it.

But if you are a mom with big dreams, goals, and aspirations.

It is imperative that you find a way to get the support that you need.

Mentally, Physically, & Spiritually.

Don’t allow your everyday task to get in the way of you bringing your BMD (before mom days) dreams into fruition.

 Being an involved MOM is a lot.

Adding employee, spouse, entrepreneur and whatever else we decide to do with our time can take a person out!

You have to create an environment where you are supported, so that you can have a chance at achieving the success you want.

Support comes in many ways.

You may need someone to watch your children while you handle your business.

You may need support in learning skills to help elevate you in your career/business.

You may need support with learning investment strategies.

You may need support with getting your thoughts together and changing your habits.

You need support. You can’t grow and elevate by yourself

Think about your life right now.

What are you struggling with in life right now?

This is a great start in figuring out where you currently need to be supported the most.

If you are a MOM who is ready to get clear about the direction in which you are headed in your life, ready to move past your fears and the mental blocks associated with leveling up in your life, business and or career, while also having support every step of the way I encourage you to schedule a clarity session with me TODAY.

Episode 7: Fasting | A Boss Experience

Episode 7: Fasting | A Boss Experience

Hey Bosses!

Happy Monday! It is a great day to be ALIVE!

I want to welcome you to episode 7 of Boss Talk Conversations, where every conversation is focused on you bossing up mentally, physically, emotionally, financially, and spiritually.

In this conversation, we are focused on FASTING

For those of you who do not know, fasting is the withholding from food/drinks or something that brings you joy, something that you claim you cant live without, for a certain period of time.

I participated in this fast because, I wanted to hear GOD. I wanted to be closer to him, so could hear what my next steps should be, led by God, not by me.

In this episode I share

1. Why I decided to partake in a fast

2. How I prepared for the fast

3. 11 major take aways that I received from engaging in my spiritual fast

This episode is for you if you have ever thought about partaking in a fast before.


Its time to elevate to the next level.

The only way you can elevate and stay on the next level is if you, get your mind, body, and spirit right.

Fasting will support you in doing just that!

I have been wanting to add interviews to my channel for so long, but I did not due to FEAR.

Not knowing how it would turn out.

Not having all the tools I felt I needed to move forward.

Well that is dead!

No longer will I continue to make moves based out of FEAR.

Elevation requires separation from the old person that you use to be so that I can be the person God called me to be.
