What inspired you to start your own business?
My family – mostly my husband. Between Adam and my Dad, they pushed me to believe in myself that I could do it and be a success.
What inspires your work and what sets you apart from everyone else?
Helping others – I feel like my business is set apart because we pride ourselves on making ourselves available. Whether it be thru text message, drive thru, delivery or our mobile app. I feel like our customers can always count on us.
What is your background and how did you develop the skills to start your business?
I began working in a community pharmacy at the age of 14. I worked all through high school, college, and pharmacy school. I feel like I developed hands on skill not just in the classroom.
What has been your biggest success to date?
Opening my own store in my hometown.
What has been your biggest challenge?
Working 6 days a week and raising my 2 boys while trying to maintain a balanced work and home life.
Which small businesses are you inspired by?
Sandersville Drug Co. (previously North Pointe) Lisa showed me how successful a women could be.
If you could go back to the beginning knowing what you know now, what would you have done differently?
I would have done it sooner. Looking back, I know I could have done this at a younger age and still been a success.
What’s your best advice for someone who wants to start their own business?
Believe in yourself and it is ok to ask for help!
