How do you define success?:

As a business owner I define success in a variety of ways, and it often goes beyond just financial gain. Here are some of the common ways they measure success:
Financial Stability:
Profitability is a key factor. Being able to cover costs, pay themselves a salary, and reinvest in the business is important.
Financial security can also mean having a comfortable savings account or being debt-free.
Customer Satisfaction:
Happy customers who keep coming back and refer others are a sign of success.
Building a strong reputation and positive word-of-mouth is crucial for many small businesses.
Growth and Impact:
Some owners define success as seeing their business grow, whether it’s by increasing revenue, expanding their product line, or hiring more employees.
Making a positive impact on the community or their industry can also be a source of pride.
Work-Life Balance and Flexibility:

Many small business owners are driven by the desire to be their own boss and have control over their work schedule.
Achieving a healthy balance between work and personal life is a sign of success for some.
Personal Fulfillment:
Turning a passion into a viable business can be incredibly rewarding.
Successfully overcoming challenges and achieving personal goals is a source of satisfaction for many entrepreneurs.

How did you get started in your field or work?:

I was designing medical equipment and the X CEO of Huffy asked me if I wanted to work with him and a team of amazing designers and architects.

What’s one thing we should know that makes your company unique?:

We are a full service international POP & Retail fixtures display company with award design & engineering. But we also have a real understanding of consumer experience and in store marketing.

What was the biggest obstacle you had to overcome in your business?:

Covid was hard. It kept people away from retail stores & restaurants. That made us turn our attention to personal space and protection.
