We had the good fortune of connecting with Cathy Dewalt and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Cathy, can you share the most important lesson you’ve learned over the course of your career?
One of the most important things I’ve learned is to not look to others to validate my dreams or goals. God has given us all gifts…no other validation is needed. Others can discourage you unintentionally because they don’t share the same dream…and that’s ok. Once I put things in perspective, I was able to focus and move forward.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
UR Special Day is exactly what it means. Our goal is to bring happiness to that Special Person in your life by showing them how special they really are. We specialize in Event Decorating and Custom Gift Giving. Services are personalized & tailored to the client.

Starting a business is challenging that’s why it’s so important to have a passion for what you’re doing. When it’s your gift and you love doing, a challenge is an opportunity. I’ve learned to appreciate the small wins. A 5 year Business Plan is great if the goals are realistic and covers a multitude of daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, and yearly goals/milestones. Two key words….Consistency & Intentional!

My band is about celebrating Love! You can have everything in life but without love which starts with God, you have nothing.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Everyday would have a theme except the first day.
