What do you love about your job?

I really do value my independence. Although to be honest, working for myself, I don't know how independent I am since I am always looking over my own shoulder. It's hard working for such a perfectionist. Besides myself, I am only beholden to my clients, and I can pick and choose to work with "nice" people. I suppose that I'm a bit beholden to my own family too, as far as putting food on the table. That's why I charge my clients. I like being in charge of what I do and being in control of the things that I create.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

I've started my own business more than once in totally different fields--high tech and low-tech trades, consulting, entertainment, and now teaching. Through them all, the common themes are that I like being able to take my ideas and go with them as I see fit, and also, I like working directly with the "end users" or the customers. I enjoy building the relationships with my clients. Now, my customers are families, and I call them as such because it all comes down to relationship building. I am a hands-on type of person with the if-you-want-it-done-right-do-it-yourself mentality. I don't know if I always do it right, but I like to do it myself. I learn a lot about what I like, what I don't like, what other people like, and what they don't like. Why? I guess that's ultimately my business--coming to understand a bit about all the people with whom I interact.
