We had the good fortune of connecting with Lashunda Coates and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Lashunda, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
My thought process was to provide a Healthy Juice that anybody could drink, From kids to Adults if a Juice does not taste good people are simply not gonna want it or consume
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I am CEO and Owner of Igotdajuice LLC what sets me apart Is being transparent with my customers and providing great customer service. This is what keeps customers coming back along with a good quality product.
I am most proud of myself for not giving up and quitting, Being an entrepreneur is not easy its hard work sometimes you have to cheer yourself on. You may not get the support from family, friends etc the important thing is to Remember your Why ?
Lessons I have learned is to constantly educate yourself on things you don’t have expertise in and find a Mentor that can assist in guiding you before making major decisions that will affect your business. Knowledge is power.
I am constantly evolving along with My business and thrive to bring nothing but the best for my customers Igotdajuice is more than a Juice it’s an experience
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would take them downtown to little rock river market area plenty of great food,bars and shops.
Also the Promenade in Chenal has great food, movie theaters and shopping
I am a nature girl so would definitely take them to hot springs or Pinnacle mtn and The big Damn Bridge to enjoy and see why Arkansas is the Natural State
