1. What exactly is Blackshear's Berries, and how did it get started?
Only two-years into existence, Blackshear's Berries began by simply creating 2016 Valentine's Day chocolate dipped strawberries for co-workers. Soon after this, I received calls asking for orders for their co workers, family and friends. Blackshear's Berries specializes in custom, gourmet and couture desserts for all engagements. Dessert tables and candy stations are trending, Blackshear's Berries is able to create a designer-worthy display for your guests to enjoy while celebrating.
2. What has been your biggest lesson from your entrepreneurial journey?
My biggest lesson from my entrepreneurial journey has been acknowledging and valuing my worth. Once my value was instilled concretely, I confidently approached negotiations with full beliefs in my skills and experience.
3. How do you juggle being a business owner and working a 9 to 5? What advice do you have for people wanting to do the same thing?
I am able to successfully juggle being a business owner and also working a 9 to 5pm, by being very well planned, prepping in advance and being consistent with organization. Planning in advance allows me to me to enjoy my passion and to see the reflection of it being displayed.
4. What is one goal you have for 2019?
My goal for 2019 would be to increase sales and to create an inviting and high energy website where my customers can view calendar availability for Blackshear's Berries and view all new dessert options.
5. How can we keep up with you and your business?
