What is your biggest success?

My biggest success was mustering the courage to start my business. Taking the leap from planning to execution was daunting, but it marked a pivotal moment in my journey.

What has been your biggest hurdle?

Balancing a full-time job with running a business can be overwhelming. Effective time management and prioritisation are crucial.
