Alexis Shoope | Physical Therapist & Strength Coach

As a physical therapist, I think there are two things that are key to success. First and foremost, your patients/clients have to trust you. In order for them to trust you, they probably need two key things: they want to feel heard and they want to feel confident that you can help them. Success in healthcare or any service-based industry comes from these two things. If someone doesn’t feel listened to, you may be the best in the business, but they may feel you just view them as another sale. Read more>>

Ronnie anderson | hairstylist

energy ! We are a hair salon and I started my career as a hairstylist in London , lucky to be surrounded by the top stylists in the county . Imagine you’re in a business where you see something new everyday that excites you and gets your creative juices flowing .. It was definitely a revolution in style . That kind of energy doesn’t come around that often and and it took a few years for me to realize just how lucky I was to have the training I received at Vidal sassoon .

The most important factor behind the success of Moving Box Co is customer service. I know every single one of my customers by name and I want them to have the absolute best experience. Our boxes speak for themselves, I know they will love using the boxes, but I also want them to have a connection to our company and remember their positive experience with our brand. At the end of the day, we are a small business and we want our customers to feel that. Our entire business model is built around customer service and ensuring our customers have the best experience from ordering all the way through box pick-up! Read more>>

Cheryl / Delano Stepp / Scroggins-Stepp | Co-Owners/Lead Coordinators

Just being who we are. To be in the wedding industry, or any service industry, you have to like all people. Weddings are high stress and high dollar. It takes a special person to be able to look at someone on a day that is supposed to be one of the biggest days of their lives and tell them when something is not going to work, and for them to still love you afterwards. We can spend sometimes 24 months planning with our brides and grooms, and at the end of it they trust us fully. Read more>>

Dina Ho | Content Creator

It’s the authenticity, relatability, and humor of my page that’s made it so successful. It’s a huge mess and fully attainable by anyone. You just need a big heart, patience, and a lot of cleaning products. Most of my videos are unedited content that are posted within 5-10 mins of when it happened. I’m having fun posting and my audience is having fun watching. I’m really grateful I get the chance to be myself in front of such a large platform. Read more>>
