Q: What makes Cincinnati a great place to start a business?
A: The startup ecosystem is really robust and super supportive. I've especially loved getting to know the people who support minority and women-run businesses and their passion for helping underserved founders launch startups.
Q: How did a grant from Main Street Ventures impact you and your business?
A: It is allowing us to build out our design prototype and prepare to launch!
Q: What does a typical day in your life look like?
A: My mornings are my sacred time and I absolutely love my morning routine. Every morning starts with relaxing time on the couch with a cup of coffee, then exercise, shower, and breakfast with my husband at our dining table. Between 11 am-7 pm is when I am generally most productive and my workday is a mix of therapy sessions, business networking meetings, brainstorming, and administrative tasks. After 8 I start to wind down and I make time to get 9 hours of sleep so I can be rested and sharp for the next day.
Q: What is a lesson you've learned that has shaped your work?
A: The entrepreneurial journey is such a roller coaster and behind every stomach-dropping low moment is a thrilling high moment. The biggest lesson I have learned is to stay focused on our mission and remain persistent throughout the intense and exhilarating ride.
Q: What's next for Health Match 360?
A: Preparing to launch the newest version of our platform that will make it simple and intuitive for Cincinnatians to find a mental health therapist.
