AZF: What is your “life motto
EG: In the words of the late R&B legend Aaliyah, “If at first you don’t succeed, dust yourself off and try again.”

AZF: Did you always know that you wanted to be an entrepreneur? If not, when did you realize that it was the right path right for you?
EG: I always knew I wanted to be an entrepreneur, but I didn’t think I would start so soon in my career as a speech-language pathologist. I had a pivotal moment in my career which led me to pursue entrepreneurship much earlier than I anticipated. It was the best decision I could’ve made. I knew this was the right path for me when the work I was doing didn’t feel like work!

AZF: How do you feel best supported?
EG: I feel best supported when others get excited about my vision! Recently, we decided to make our impact global! My team was excited and supported my vision to provide speech therapy in an international country. It was a life-changing experience for everyone.

AZF: What motivates you to keep going amidst the challenges that come with being an entrepreneur?
EG: My motivation is knowing that I was put on this Earth to create! Entrepreneurship is creative work. I was meant to make something bigger than myself.

AZF: Describe your perfect Saturday morning.
EG: My perfect Saturday morning involves doing whatever I decide to do with my time. Time is a luxury that we don’t have enough of; especially if you are an entrepreneur.

AZF: What’s one piece of advice you’d give to a young entrepreneur who is just starting out?
EG: There are so many things I would say to a young entrepreneur just starting out. However, my main piece of advice is to be original. Originality is going to get you further than any other skill. Your uniqueness is what will attract the right customers and employees. The money will follow.
