When did you start your business?

I started Shayla’s Sweets in September 2018.

What’s your favorite part of your business?

I love being able to use my creative abilities while earning money from home. It’s very flattering when I see how happy people are when they get my cakes and other treats!

Do you have any hidden talents (or favorite hobbies)?

I enjoy photography, planning parties, drawing, painting, crafting, traveling and most importantly, spending time with my little 20-month-old boy.

What’s your favorite restaurant in Lubbock?

My favorite restaurant in Lubbock is Saltgrass.

If you had a free weekend and $2,000, what would you do?

If I had a free weekend and $2,000 to spend, I would probably go on a cruise to the Mediterranean!

What’s the best business advice you’ve ever received?

The best business advice I’ve reviewed… hmm, is not exactly advice, but encouragement from my sweet husband- he’s always rooting me on to put myself out there and expand my business.
