Five Questions Featuring Alishia Colimon

Hello all,

As in attempt to not only generate content for my budding site, but also to get some cheap click bait for my site, I have created a series called 'Five Questions'.

In essence its an interview with people I think are above average, or who have on some level have helped/influenced me for the better.

The questions will vary depending on the person who is answering them however the premise will stay the same - five questions. 

My first interview is with someone who has helped me more in my professional career then anyone else. 

She is the current general manager at Cinemaworld theaters in Melbourne Fl, she gave me a chance to work for her and change the fortunes of my life, I will always be thankful for that. 
Here is Five Questions with Alishia Colimon. 

1. What’s your biggest business accomplishment and what did you learn from it?

My biggest business accomplishment is being afforded the opportunity to be in a position where I can inspire, guide and train people in a positive manner.  It taught me that success can begin with you but flourishes with those you come in contact with.

2. Favorite Book EVER and Why:

I have many favorite books but I would have to say my top one is "A Child Called It."  I chose this one because I read it at a young age and it gave me hope to never give up and strive for better no matter what you go through.  That book helped me to believe in myself and my life at that point.

3. What’s one thing people don’t know about you that you’d like to share?.

Not many people know that I wanted to be a designer growing up.  Interior and fashion design.  I had many sketch books filled with clothing creations and set ups of the inside of houses.  To this day, I enjoy doing crafts and creating my own things.

4.What’s one mistake that you see young people make when trying to get ahead in life and what should they do instead?

One mistake I see young people make when trying to get ahead in life is trying to take short cuts and worrying about what others think or what others are doing.  You cannot truly be successful cutting corners because those corners that were cut, could be their downfall.  The young generation should be focusing more on making sure they are working hard rather than if people think they are working hard.   I always live by the motto your work should speak for itself.  Their main focus should be accomplishing their goals and working hard for themselves, not doing things because they want to compete with someone.  Genuine passion and drive will get you farther than envy and greed.  

5. If you started over building your business today, what’s the ONE thing you’d do differently?

Honestly, there really is not anything I would do differently.  I believe things happen the way they are intended and mistakes are intended to help build you up stronger and learn something from the mistakes.  Without mistakes there would be no room to think outside the box and thinking outside the box is imperative for successful growth of a business.  However, if I had to pick one thing, it would be to have networked more in the beginning of my journey.
