Was there an ah-ha moment that led to your entrepreneurial journey?
The ah-ha moment came through a lived experience of solving a problem I felt as a small business owner. That problem was not being able to get financials in a timely manner to make critical decisions in growing my past businesses. Upon exiting my last business, in manufacturing with technology coming to the doorstep to make great strides, it made me realize by leveraging technology we could be at the forefront of reshaping an industry and in turn solve a major pain point felt by small business owners – getting accurate financials, timely.
What’s been the biggest challenge in growing your business? How did you overcome it?
Funding, right people in the right seats, and moving at the speed of a high-growth startup.
It starts with eye-of-the-tiger attitude and recognizing the problems to be solved, prioritizing them, and then purposeful execution. Then rinse and repeat. All 3 steps are required.
The greatest challenge over the next three years is the unknowns that are out of our control. As we are living through an unprecedented pandemic, we are realizing we all must be resilient and solution-focused to navigate this challenging and exciting time. Historically, in times like these, some of the greatest innovation and forward-thinking has occurred. We are seeing that today and that is why it is both challenging and exciting.
Explain the culture of your organization. What’s it like working at your company?
Customer obsessed, lots of opportunity and fun. Our diverse culture is filled with people who are life-long learners, who are customer-obsessed, who believe in always doing the right thing not only for our external customer but for our internal customers as well. We are fast-growth and fast-moving and always find the time for a bit of fun and honoring each other as we honor our customers.
What’s your company’s competitive edge over other companies in your market?
Our competitive edge is a lot of little things – no silver bullet. Many of them are intangible. It is no longer an Edge to do things faster or lower priced. There is always someone who will come around and one-up you in these areas. Our competitive edge is our brand. We speak small business and have the customer-obsession (internal and external) that are present in companies like Chewy and Zappos.
What are the benefits of operating in Florida for your business?
As a native of Florida, I saw no other way than to build in Florida. With the diverse culture that brings varied points of view, I feel it’s a competitive advantage to problem solving and innovation. Along with the amazing weather, talent pool, and tax advantages, Florida is well-positioned for growth in the next decade. Florida has been a well-kept secret business up till now!
What does it mean to you to be selected as a GrowFL Florida Companies to Watch Honoree?
