How did you get into your business, or what motivated you to start it? "I have great skills in organizing projects, and my family seemed to ask for my assistance when they were conducting personal affairs since I have a legal background. I enjoy working with the elderly and assisting them with everyday chores. I also noticed that my co-workers seemed overwhelmed when they tried to balance work and their family life."
