Q: How will the Main Street Ventures Grant impact you and your business?

A: MSV definitely helps us while we are struggling with funding. We know we are closer to our dream and we can better build up our brand because of MSV Grant's support. We can focus on more local branding build-up instead of struggling with funding.

Q: What is a lesson you've learned that has shaped your work?

A: Not only work hard but also work smart.

Q: What’s a recent book, podcast, or news story that you found interesting?

Q: What makes Cincinnati a great place to start a business?

A: It's an old city with lots of energetic people willing to know more about the world. It has mixed cultures, different religions, and convenient transportation to other places. Because local people like to be educated and accepting of different, new things, it's easier to bring a variety of things into this area to make this city more diverse in all different ways.

Q: What’s one piece of advice would you give a young entrepreneur in Greater Cincinnati?

A: You can quit as much as you want, as long as you keep going.
