SK Art Space
What inspired the creation of SK Art Space?
We all have a deep love for the arts and the creative community. We have hosted a few art classes and put on several shows for other people. We thought it would be amazing if we created our own space for people to create out of. We also want to curate shows for children and for seniors.
How did you all meet and decide to open the space together?
We met in college and competed together for the SCSU Track & Field team. Believe it or not, this is not our first business venture as a team. We love working and creating together. We help one another grow in so many other areas of our lives as best friends and growing our financial future is one of them. We want to make a difference in our communities through art and various creative avenues.
What excites you the most about this new and exciting chapter?
The ability to work with people we love and the idea of sharing our passion for the arts with those in our community.What also excited us was the fact that we have something to call our own. WE make the choices, we don’t have to answer to anyone other than us.
How would you describe your work ethic?
Our work ethic is positive. We bounce a lot of ideas off one another. What’s really fun is that we all have different styles and how we look at things but I think when you put it all together, it makes for an amazing one of a kind outcome. Also, we always keep a positive mindset while setting goals. And always remember to celebrate accomplishing those goals no matter how small.
What keeps you going when juggling life and business presents various challenges?
Honestly, (and not to sound corny) we keep each other going. We always have each other to remind ourselves that this isn’t the end and everything will be okay. We help each other set goals, assist with achieving them and we are always there to pick each other up if we ever fall.Also, holding one another accountable. Personally, and individually we are all women who take care of business and whatever we say we are going to do, we get it done and if we can’t we make sure to communicate that to one another and continue to support and help one another wherever we can.
What is the best business advice you have ever received?
“Don’t reinvent the wheel” see what works for others and improve it but adding your own style and flare to it.
What advice would you offer to aspiring entrepreneurs?
Take the risk. No risk, no reward. Surround yourself with the ppl you aspire to be more like. If you spend your time with 4 millionaires, you’re bound to be the 5th!
