Did you ever get sleep building your brand up?

Was it hard to start your business?
Shantae – It wasn’t hard for me to start my business or to get in this pet industry. It was really easy because there was a need for me and I helped solve a problem
What were some of the trials you went through when you first started?
Shantae – One major trail I went through when I started my business was the legal part like trademarking. I went a whole 6 years with a business name that I wasn’t able to trademark and when I was ready, I literally had to start all over but I didn’t take it as a loss it was definitely a lesson. It’s safe to say I receive my official trademark in June 2022 and I’m excited about my rebrand.
What’s your goal for the next 10 years in business?
Shantae – My goal for the next 10 years is to have luxury dog houses in 6 major cities providing quality dogs, natural holistic pet products, and dog services ( grooming, training, sitting, boarding, and daycare). I will have my own flight nanny company as well where I can deliver quality dogs worldwide. I also will have a luxury dog warehouse where I can provide a space to host annual dog events for pet entrepreneurs.
Did your friends support your business when you launched it? If not why do you think not?
Shantae – My friends didn’t support me when I launch and I think that’s because they didn’t understand my vision which wasn’t for them to understand. I can also say those friends are not my friend today because I must be in alignment with those that want to see me win which those people happen to be complete strangers.
What’s something you haven’t done in your career yet that you always wanted to accomplish?
Shantae – Something I haven’t done yet in my career but want to accomplish is my six-figure earning mark which I will make this year. The six-figure mark is a big thing for me because it hasn’t been done in my family besides those that work a job. I want to lead by example so that chasing your dreams, trusting the process, and doing what you are passionate about can be accomplished.
