Beverly’s advice for young women interested in pursuing a career or entrepreneurship in her field:

“Don’t cut corners. If you plan to start a business, set up your company with the appropriate insurances, licenses, tax information, etc. Spend time researching all of your potential opportunities and be strategic in your planning.”
