We had the good fortune of connecting with Daizy Malie Rodriguez and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Daizy Malie, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I believed i could work for myself and stay home with my babies at the time . I was barely starting out I didn’t have many customers but slowly I gained them . Everyday I practiced I wanted to get better And more Creative! My kids were my Motivation I missed them and It was hard being a working mother and leaving your kids barely seeing them a couple of hours a day . I wanted to raise them not someone else raise my kids for me . So many people have made this possible for me to be a stay at home mom but also work from home .
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
It’s hard .. sleepless nights , new recipes, new ideas , new orders, early mornings ,burnt cakes , missing sugar in the sugar cookies , booking, charging , shopping and so much more comes with being a small business owner . Its not as easy as it looks but definitely not impossible! It becomes a good thing it keeps you busy and doing something you love everyday is a blessing ! I wouldn’t give it up for anything . I love it here ! Ive learned to not let the bad days get to me . Some days you are crazy booked and some days you aren’t. Some days your killing a new technique & some days your not . Some days you sell out & some days you don’t . You keep pushing yourself to strive for more to learn more to invest in your business the more you invest in the things you love the more they will grow.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I would go to a river or somewhere with a nice view ! We love visiting Chalk Bluff River Resort! Nice mountain views and A Lazy River ! Camping, Deers & Bonfires ! Having a good time with everyone ! The Stars look so beautiful down there !
