Savvy Small Business Sunday | Meet Fawziyyah Abdullah

Whenever I get an email about a feature request I always look up the person's business if I'm unfamiliar; which is what I did for Fawziyyah's boutique.  She creates some really unique pieces of jewelry-- ranging from earrings to bracelets to necklaces.  I have mad respect for any artist/designer because I know it takes patience and tenacity to continue with such a business.  Read more to find out how she started.  You just might be inspired to start working on your dream... Meet Fawziyyah!

Why did you choose to start your own business?
 My mother put this business together for my sisters and I but im the only one who kept the business going so I made it my own.

What advice do you have for someone else trying to start his or her own small business?
 Some advice is to stay focused!  Never give up on your dreams and ideas.  Always strive to do the best and more. Go outside your comfort zone-- it broadens your way of thinking and gives you a vision on where you want to be and take your business.
