Like most entrepreneurs, owner Hupp’s biggest challenge when starting out was having to do everything herself to keep costs down. In the process, she learned bookkeeping procedures, how to build and maintain a website, and also curate, install, and promote art shows.
“Owning my own company continues to be a challenge in time and resource management,” she said. “The joys of knowing I am helping my community, providing jobs, promoting art and making lasting personal relationships far outweigh the many challenges owning my own company presents.”
