What have you learned since you established Hummingbird Investment Holdings Inc?
The biggest thing I’ve learned since starting Hummingbird Investment Holdings Inc. is I don’t need to get caught up in the details of “how” things will be done. Once I know the “what” and the “why” how it gets done will come!
Why did you start a business in the middle of a pandemic?
I started Hummingbird Investment Holdings Inc. because of the pandemic. The entire world was on pause and there was no pressure for anyone to do anything. For me, that was the perfect time to do exactly what I always wanted to do. Some people baked bread; I started a home revitalization business.
How do you run a company and raise a family?
I was tempted to say “very carefully” but even with the best planning and organizing, it’s hectic and demanding and exhausting. At the same time, I’m extremely motivated, energized, and passionate about accomplishing my dreams and goals. I want to make a difference through Hummingbird Investment Holdings Inc.
What advice would you give other women who want to start their own company?
It sounds like a clique but don’t wait – just do it. Trust me, the timing is never going to be perfect. Even if you don’t know exactly how you’re going to do it, you need to take the first step. Also surrounding yourself with great people who can help, both practically and emotionally, is key. So…take that first step and keep moving.
What makes you happy?
I’m at my best when I have options, choices and freedom. I like routine and predictability but what I value most is the ability to live and work without feeling trapped, caged or smothered. The more freedom I have, the happier I am.
What’s your next big adventure?
That’s a great question. The reality is there are many roads to my next big adventure and I’m open to all of them. As I mentioned before, options make me happy, so my next big adventure is going to be whatever feels right.
