Tell me about your business, how did you first get started?

A couple years back I started mowing my mom’s lawn for her, and I really enjoyed it; I find it very therapeutic. I’ve worked in other service-related industries pretty much my whole life, before this I was kitchen manger for a restaurant. But I decided I wanted to branch out on my own. I’ve had my company for two years now and it’s going really well!

Have you always had a desire to start your own business?

Kind of, I knew I wanted to be my own boss, and I get a lot of satisfaction from seeing the results of my hard work. In my business when your done with a project you get to see the end-product immediately, and that’s one of the aspects I enjoy the most. I also get to meet a lot of great people.

As a small business owner, what’s the one piece of advice you would give to someone thinking of starting their own business?

Don't wait! Go ahead and do it; I wish I had started sooner.

What has your customer experience been like with CoverWallet?

I was working with commercial clients and they require insurance coverage, like General Liability and Worker’s Compensation. I was actually in touch with one of your partners, and they directed me to CoverWallet to get the coverage I needed. The whole experience has been great!
