‘If you could give a piece of advice to other entrepreneurs, what would it be?“
’’Three things; It’s never too soon to start your own business, don’t be afraid to adjust your first ideas and try learn from your mistakes. Look at me for example I started with snow cones only. Soon enough I realized it’s too rainy over here to sale ice cream 365 days a year so I came up with the idea to offer sandwiches. They were doing really well but it was impossible to fit an oven into my cart. I got rid of the sandwiches and now during the colder days I serve peanut soup and rotti rolls and it really works, people love it.”
