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?

We already had a Small Balloon and prop business for the last three years one day we went to set up a event in Woodlands,Tx The event planner approach me told me that it was time for me to upgrade my props from Wood to Realistic props what they use to design events in California.After seven months of seeking knowledge & learning about the prop business We decided to upscale our small business.was it easy..Hell No! Opening an upscale prop rental business was not easy. It was very hard, trying to determine how to pay for it was the most challenging. My husband worked a lot of overtime. He was away from home offshore for five or six weeks at a time trying to make the money so we can get started. we had no idea how costly it was until it was time to buy a 40 foot container to know how expensive it was to owe a prop shop.It has been very hard good Lord but we refused to give up.but we made a Promise to God we was not gonna give up.How did we overcome our challenges. First we learn how to sacrifice & learn to save more money than we ever have.We learned to change our mentality and focus on our determination. My husband reminds me daily that if you wake up feeling negative and feeling like you can’t do it mentally that’s where you will be stuck but if you wake up feeling like you’re gonna win you’re going to win. so everything is mental with us. We feed our minds Growth & Success daily.How did we overcome our challenges. We stop making the same mistakes we start learning from our mistakes. We start being better listeners and Embracing knowledge we’re still going through a lot of challenges but it has gotten easier over time. Our challenges are not as rough as they were in the beginning.We prayed for Strength to get us thru.Lessons learned along the way.We embrace criticism, we embrace trials & errors,staying focused & rising above all lessons.
