Inspitories is my made up word for inspirational stories on young people I find interesting. They are usually interviews of other Entrepreneurs like myself whom I have had the pleasure of meeting, stumbled upon online or dug up that motivate me. Enjoy and get inspired!

As an entrepreneur, sometimes you might have to try a couple different things until you find what works. Successful entrepreneurs and business people never give up. Perseverance is key.

One person that knows this all too well is a certain young lady I’ve known for close to six years. She started a nails service business called Nail Tha Occasion, worked at it, but eventually closed it. About a year later, she started a freshly cooked meals delivery service called 1108 Catering, I believe. It was a success and I was a patron lol. I’m not quite sure if it has been re-branded or on hold for now, but mid last year, she shared her plans with me to launch an accessories line. She showed me some of her creations and they were pretty good. They are even better now. It may seem like she bounces around, but I believe she has found her niche. She works extremely hard at it and invests in quality materials; without a doubt, Todun Designs is here to stay.
