CEO and Founder of Buzzagogo, Joyce Dales is an innovator who helps people eradicate or eliminate allergies, colds, and the flu right from the hub of viral infections - our noses.
Today Joyce shares how she became an entrepreneur and says it all started with a need to help her daughter. As with many good products, all the magic began with leaving her corporate job and turning to her creative side to become a maker. Adrienne and Joyce discuss enthusiasm, attitude, hopes, and conflicting feelings while building a women-owned business. The importance of having support from other women, the local community, and buyers' trust is essential for each woman in business. Joyce is an excellent example of a stay-at-home mom who did a fantastic job with an innovative concept that helps so many people and kids because, as she says: “The best products come from motivated women.”
