In Where You Should Be Spending Your Money, we showcase the various businesses available in our community that we can support to inspire you to cycle your very important and all-powerful black dollars amongst people that look like you and have YOU in mind. This week, we feature C. Durr Visuals.
First off, I want to thank you for considering me for this feature. A 25-year-old southern belle. Born & raised in North Carolina. I’m married with no kids (yet)! I would say I’m a nerdy goofball with an edge to me.
IHTG: What motivated you to start this business?
I love working with small businesses especially because of the building from the ground up process. I understand that being creative gets hard for some business owners which is why I dedicate my time to help those in need of new ideas to promote themselves and their businesses.
IHTG: Tell us about your business (what product or service do you offer, your typical customer, etc.).
I strive to create logos, flyers, and social media content. I work on social media managing and start-up businesses as well♥
IHTG: How does your business give back to the community?
As of the holiday season approaching, I plan to donate to nursing and a homeless shelter.
IHTG: What advice would you give to someone considering starting a business?
FOCUS.FOCUS.FOCUS GIRL! First-time entrepreneurs feel the need to jump at every “opportunity” they come across. Trust me, I did. Do one thing perfectly, not 10 things poorly.
IHTG: What is the best advice you’ve received since starting your business?
My best advice came from a fellow designer from “Hope’s Harbor, LLC”. She told me “Listen. Whatever you do be confident and consistent with your brand. Never charge less than what your work is worth. It’s hard to break that habit. You’ll have great days, you’ll have days you have to think hard to remember why you started…but don’t quit! You’re so awesome!! Can’t wait to watch you SOAR!” ❤❤
