How has Georgia State supported you as an entrepreneur?
My education at Georgia State has enhanced my understanding of math, reading and science – Which is key to running a successful tutoring company. My experience with the Entrepreneur Club at Georgia State has also introduced me to many different opportunities and has broadened my perspective of entrepreneurship.
What does entrepreneurship mean to you?
Being able to dictate and control your destiny.
What inspired you to launch your company?
It was always my dream to run my own company. Plus, I need some extra money to pay for the master’s degree I am planning to pursue without taking out a loan. My company is all about helping and empowering people, which I love to do most.
How has your company grown?
We have been able to register more students, hire more tutors and add more subjects taught within our tutoring center. Additionally, our organization has become much more stable.
What advice can you offer to entrepreneurs?
Plan accordingly, work hard and execute. Everyone will doubt you, but don’t doubt yourself.
Was there ever a moment you wanted to quit entrepreneurship?
Yes, there was a moment I wanted to quit because my board of directors was not committed enough. I decided to make some changes and recruit people who were more motivated and committed.
