Sometimes knowing what inspires those who have come before you is all the motivation you need to make it to the next level.
What inspired you to start your business Perfectly Cordial?
Perfectly Cordial was started out of need and an empty space in the marketplace. I was looking for a cocktail mixer that would allow me to recreate cocktails that I enjoyed making as a bartender and enjoyed drinking as a customer. The products on the store shelves where full of sugar and water and very little of the fruit that was pictured on the bottle. I started making my own mixer where the first ingredient was fruit.
Why did you decide to become a nurse?
I know it sounds cliché, but I did not choose to become a nurse, nursing chose me. My father is a proud Jamaican and becoming a nurse was a dream of his, and it validated success in the Caribbean community. However, my initial response was that it was boring and hard. Upon completion of high school, I pursued a degree in media and communications.
