Vixen Chat: Dominique Penn Talks Philanthropy and Activism



Vixen: What advise would give to an aspiring entrepreneur?

Dominique Penn: First off, I would tell them to make sure they have a plan. You can’t execute anything without a plan. You need a business plan. You need to find your niche and run with that  first. People have so many ideas and sometimes they get scattered and you lose focus because you’re trying to do everything at once and sometimes you get unmotivated. You have to start off small first. Don’t be in such a rush to get to the top, start at the bottom and then work your way up. Also thoroughly do your research and make sure you can execute your plan on all levels possible before you jump out into the world. The world is harsh. You have to make sure that you cover every aspect of anything that you’re working on. And definitely believe in yourself. We all get unmotivated; I know I’ve had my downs, but if you always stay determined and stay motivated, you can achieve anything. People who’ve given up don’t make it.
