We had a Q&A session with Jhoanny Perez to get to know a little more about her life as an entrepreneur and restaurant growth coach.
Tell us who inspired you to begin your entrepreneurial journey.
My mother inspired me to become an entrepreneur due to her excellence and ambition I became inspired to pay it forward and serve others in my business.
What impact do you want to have in the world or change you want to see or make happen?
I want to be the cheerleader for aspiring restaurant owners. I want to help as many families live the American dream of owning their own food business that brings them passion, security and passes on generational wealth.
What type of mindset do you have?
I have a go getter mindset, I implement strategy into my business and life on the spot, I do not wait.
How do you distinguish yourself from your competitors?
My competitors are not as vibrant and open and relatable as this Latina woman of color who is a millennial restaurant owner. My teachings come from actual experience and restaurants I run and created from scratch.
What habits do you practice that make you a success?
I practice breathing, taking breaks and debriefing with other business owners about best practices and challenges..
What advice would you give your younger self?
I would advice my younger self to continue to serve as I always have because its going to pay off when my clients see my global experience and the well rounded leader I am today.
Where do you see yourself five years from now?
I want to be happy, have a thriving online restaurant business e-school, and be known as to go to expert in my field.
