WHAT ARE THE BEST LOCAL RESOURCES FOR SMALL BUSINESSES SEEKING ASSISTANCE IN GETTING STARTED OR EXPANDING? I never really used any, though I did find Spotsylvania County was very helpful in guiding me through the permitting processes.
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE SOMEONE THINKING ABOUT STARTING A BUSINESS RIGHT NOW? Make sure you have the funding. Also, make sure you understand any contracts you enter, such as the business's location. Know your ordinances and permitting rules.
WHAT ARE YOU MOST LIKELY TO BE DOING WHEN NOT WORKING? Did I mention I have four boys? Housework is high on the list, though I don't do toilets. Years ago, my husband agreed to handle toilet cleaning duties, a skill he picked up in the Marine Corps. Tending to my pets is also important, particularly my angora rabbit.
WHERE DO YOU WANT TO BE FIVE YEARS FROM NOW? Still here. I would like for my family to be involved. Perhaps some expansion of the business, though still in one location.
WHO WOULD YOU RATHER SPEND TIME WITH, WARREN BUFFETT, DORIS BUFFETT OR JIMMY BUFFETT? Doris does so much for people and show she cares about others so getting to meet her would be great. Jimmy would be a lot of fun. Maybe I could spend a couple of hours with Doris, and have Jimmy stop in for a margarita.
