What is your favorite part about your job? My favorite part about my ministry is watching the transformation right before my eyes, knowing I helped save another life.
What is the most challenging part about your job? The most challenging part about my ministry is getting clients to understand that there is light at the end of the tunnel. I can always see the finish line for them, but it’s hard to convince them when the process is at a standstill.
Why did you decide to become a PCBC member? I decided to become a PCBC member because I needed to take my business to the next level and I knew that they could provide the type of services I needed to accomplish those goals.
What challenges do you face as an African American business professional? The challenges I face as an African American business professional is the opportunity to gain business capital/credit due to the “stereo type” of our beautiful culture and the “non-trust” factor of being able to pay back. Also, being a female business owner competing in such a popular profession and having the capability to transform lives in the same way a male trainer can.
What are your goals for your business and how do you see PC being part of that process? My goal for my business is to franchise Vitiman Kandie, LLC one day to those up and coming health and wellness professionals looking to go in the same direction to help transform lives. PC will help to keep my business delivery clean, with a professional product and reputation.
