TheBOSSNetwork: What were some obstacles that you faced in the beginning process of starting your business or career? 

Dymeata Burum: One of my greatest obstacles overcoming the opinions of other people. When God gives you a dream or vision, It is imperative that you eliminate all dream killers and momentum stealers. It was one of the hardest decisions I had to make. Another obstacle I had to overcome was not allowing the lack of resources to dictate my dream for success. 

BN: What inspired you to break into your particular industry?

DB: My daughters inspired me to start my business. I want them to be inspired and believe that if their mommy did it, they can do it too. 

BN: How do you balance your personal and professional life or have you been able to find a balance? 

DB: Although it wasn't easy in the beginning, I have practiced balancing out what's important with what's very important. Everything and everyone can not be a priority. My family is my first priority. 

BN: What is an inspirational quote that you live by?

DB: "Excuses are for the uncommitted."

BN: Who were some influential people or mentors that helped or encouraged you along the way? 

DB: Oprah Winfrey, Lisa Price( The creator of Carol's Daughter) & First Lady Michelle Obama

BN: What are your "must-haves" to keep your career or business going strong? 

DB: I MUST HAVE my iPhone in order to keep my businesses running virtually. My customers and clients will always be served in excellence. I MUST HAVE time for "ME" in order to be effective in my community, to my family, and in my business.

BN: What is your definition of a BOSS

DB: The definition of a BOSS to me is someone who is BOLD enough to take risk, stand out, and stand up in spite of their oppositions, in order to reach success.
