What inspired you to open your own business?
I wanted to help people quit smoking. After working in the medical field for over 15 years and watching hundreds of people lose their life to smoking related illness, I knew I had to make a difference if I could
What makes Murfreesboro businesses special?
I love the closeness of the Murfreesboro small business community. Everyone seems more than willing to help each other. Murfreesboro has all the amenities of a large city while maintaining small town charm.
Describe your business in a few words.
We are a custom-blend vapor shop. We help smokers make a better choice. Our mission is to help smokers kick the habit and choose a safer alternative to smoking.
Who are your customers?
My customer are people who wish to quit smoking.
How do you define success in your business?
I define my success by how satisfied my customers are and by receiving their repeat business. I succeed when we can find the right set up for each customer to make getting away from cigarettes easier.
What are your current and upcoming goals for your business?
We will continue to provide excellent service and work one-on-one with our customers to ensure they have a good experience shopping with us. We would like to add a fourth location.
Besides your own, what is your favorite local business?
The Learning Circle. But I try to support all local businesses.
What advice would you give someone looking to open a business in Murfreesboro?
Do your homework. Before you decide on a location talk to building and codes. They are willing to help but it is much easier to select a place based on current codes than to try to modify a building that is not necessarily an ideal fit.
Get out and talk with other local small business owners! They were amazing help when I was starting out.
