What is your favorite business success story?
There is a lot that goes into success; hard work, the amazing staff, the wonderful customers etc. But staying open during the pandemic was especially difficult. We worked longer hours on half the staff. Everyone was respectful. It was truly incredible to see so many people want to create gardens and grow their own food.

As someone doing business in San Marcos, what are you looking forward to accomplishing with the Chamber?
Always listening to others. Hearing others' ideas and being open-minded to change is a great quality to implement into your own business.
What's your best piece of business advice?
Don’t assume you know everything. Always listen and ask questions. Don’t be afraid to be the student.
