Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
It has been smooth but, in anyone’s life and in business, it’s not always easy. Sometimes you must look at bad situations/mistakes and see how well you’ve learned from them or did you grow. Growth is the process of learning from prior experiences.

Please tell us about Resurgence Consulting.
Resurgence Consulting is a premier consulting firm that specializes in B2B consulting, helping minority business owners get their documents and files together to be able to submit RFP’s and we have a real estate sales/management team.

As owner and operator, I do it all. I am a one on one kind of person and I like to make sure my clients know that I’m there with them throughout their business needs or consulting. It is very often that business consultants will go into a contract with their client and the client has no idea what their business really needs to succeed. When that happens, the consulting firm that the client has hired often treats the client(s) as if they are all the same and often times don’t really tailor the services specifically for that individual client. I try my best with each client to give them an experience in business consulting by specially crafting their needs and wants into their own package and ideas so that it will be fun and rewarding for them when they actually start their business or maybe even restructuring their business.

As a company, my staff and I are most proud of the recurring customers we have and that we all feel the need to know that the customer is always right. We strive daily to achieve our internal goals as well as the expectations and goals that our clients see that we should. I am most proud that I was able to take a business idea that was intended to help others and now we are becoming leaders in the consulting and real estate market. We are in a league of our own and that we are able to be dedicated to each service and client that we have.

One of my favorite quotes that I tell most new clients is that “we are small enough to know you and large enough to grow you.” My favorite quote of all times that I say to myself daily It’s All In the State of Mind by Walter D. Wintle.

If you think you are beaten, you are,
If you think that you dare not, you don’t,
If you’d like to win, but you think you can’t, It’s almost certain you won’t.
If you think you’ll lose, you’ve lost,
For out in the world, you’ll find Success begins with a fellow’s will
It’s all in the state of mind.
Full many a race is lost ere even a step is run.
And many a coward falls ere even his work’s begun,
Think big, and your deeds will grow; Think small, and you’ll fall behind; Think that you can, and you will— It’s all in the state of mind.
If you think you are out-classed, you are; You’ve got to think high to rise;
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before you ever can win a prize,
Life’s battles don’t always go.
To the stronger or faster man; But sooner or later the man who wins is the man who thinks he can.
