Bina's Phenomenal Allies Feature: Kishmon Services, LLC

Hola BAye Hive Tribe!

Welcome to another fabulous week of Small Business Tuesday!
I'm so excited to present this week's feature on Bina's Phenomenal Allies!

I'm a big supporter of small business owners/founders. What better way to show my support but by featuring them and helping to get their name out, right?

Here's another week of awesomeness!

I'm pleased to introduce to you Kishka Gooden, Owner of Kishmon Services, LLC.

Kishmon Service, LLC
Bina: What is the name of your business?
Kishka: Kishmon Services, LLC.

Bina: Where are you located?
Kishka: Midlothian, VA

Bina: How long have you been in business (anniversary)?
Kishka: Since 2013

Bina: How did you get started in this business?
Kishka: I initially started as a part time job/side hustle. In 2019, I quit my job and decided to pursue my business full-time. I love the freedom I now have.

Bina: Tell us about your business.
Kishka: I provide admin support to other small businesses such as email management, invoicing, customer service, travel assistance, etc. I am also a Notary Public and do Photo Inspections for insurance companies. I am also a board member for United Vision, Inc with is a 501(3)c non profit and I have a blog called Diary of the Hustle Queen where I interview people making the transition from corporate America to entrepreneurship. Last year, I rented my 1st rental property with the help of a property management company. I initially started doing a lot of different things with the goal of making 7 streams of income, but over time I began to focus on what makes me happy and ways I can truly help others.

Bina: What were the first few steps you took to get your business up and running?
Kishka: After setting up my LLC and getting my EIN, I created a FB page for my business and immediately started sharing it. I also created my web site so I could expand on business.

Bina: What are the biggest issues for running this business?
Kishka: The biggest issue I run into is finding clients. I have met people that need admin assistance but me becoming their client is usually stalled due to them being able to afford to pay someone for the work. .

Bina: What has been the most effective way of raising awareness for your business and getting new customers?
Kishka: Word of mouth is the best way for me. I have a lot of great family and friends that share my post and refer me all the time. I have had people reach out based on that.

Bina: What do you see as the future for your business?
Kishka: Each month I set monthly goals for my business, this month I want to learn a new skill for my business. I know new skills will bring new clients and that is the overall goal. Since this is my full time business I would love to continue to grow.

Bina: Running your own business can become overwhelming at times. What motivates you to keep going?
Kishka: 1. Freedom - I am able to set my own schedule and be there when my family needs me. I can come home by the time my oldest gets off the bus. 2. Stress-free life - My previous job was stressful and now I am able love what I do without any stress!

Bina: What advice would you give other aspiring entrepreneurs?
Kishka: Take your time and know what you want and your target market. We see a lot of people with their own business but some don't know how to run them. I would also say networking goes a long way. Not everyone can just up and quit their full-time so until you can, work on your business!! Having your own business is not glamorous, there are good days and bad! Trust the process!!!!!!!!!

Bina: Is there anything else you would like my readers to know about you and/or your business?
Kishka: No but I encourage people to read my blog at
