“As a woman technology leader, my strength lies in 1. mentoring team members to create their best and fulfilling work and 2. creating technology solutions that enable businesses,” Young said.

Young regularly consults with multi-million dollar companies; she notes that these projects are amazing because businesses of this size are often extremely streamlined in their processes. Young sees opportunity in these projects, since they provide the means to grow her business and are large enough to experiment with various opportunities.

Challenges of Starting a Business

Despite all the amazing opportunities Young's work has afforded, there have of course been challenges along the way. Young’s three hardest challenges have been finding her business model, securing sustainable revenue and managing time.

She notes that finding your business model can be the toughest one, since you'll have to start with a hypothesis and experiment around it. Young began by offering technology strategy around digital transformation services, pivoting to product management services before finally settling on artificial intelligence strategy and solutions.

As for the second challenge, Young's advice is to understand your target market, amp up your marketing efforts, and finally partner with similar businesses to help secure sustainable revenue. And for managing time? Prioritizing ruthlessly is the way to go.

When it comes to advice she would offer new small business owners and founders, Young offers up the following nuggets:

  • Speak to many business owners who have started a business in the last 2-3 years to get an idea. Often, speaking to seasoned entrepreneurs doesn't yield relevant information for starting a business.
  • Finding a mentor is another must-do; find a good mentor quickly by going to your local SCORE chapter.
  • Think about who would be responsible for sales. If you are not a salesperson, finding a co-founder who is into sales would be great.
