Let’s Take 5 with Trezanay
What is one piece of advice you’d give to your first-year-in-business self?
Save two years worth of business and personal expenses and try really hard not to make a life altering decision during those two years to disrupt your financial well-being. Like… having another child. Yikes.
What is your favorite app or tool?
Google Apps. Android everything!
What is one mistake you’ve made that you’ve learned from?
An unplanned pregnancy sent my entire business down the tubes. I made poor financial decisions during that time to survive, and I’m still paying for those decisions.
If they made a movie of your life, who would you want to play you?
Tichina Arnold (“Pamela James” on Martin, and “Rochelle” on Everybody Hates Chris) or Gina Torres (“Jessica Pearson” on Suits)
What’s one thing you wish more women entrepreneurs knew?
You can’t have it all. You can’t do it all. So you better have a partner at work, and a partner at home. And by partner, I mean someone who shares with you the responsibilities and the rewards!
