Q&A: Determined, Ambitious, Consistent, and Persistent

Our Q&A Column is a way for us to highlight the interesting people within our community.

This week we talked with local entrepreneur Septembria Martin.

Why Were You Interested In Your Current Role/Job in the Beginning?

Helping people has always been a top priority and interest of mine. No matter where I am, I am of service.

What Are The Roles Of Your Position?

I am the owner of Human Care Products, LLC and my role is to make sure that the business is running smoothly.

What Major Challenges Have You Faced So Far?

The major challenge that I have faced so far was getting people to actually believe and to use the products for themselves. After that, the challenge worked itself out. In the beginning I struggled with marketing and just trying to figure out everything like how I wanted to brand the company, who is my target audience, how to set myself apart from the rest, etc.

What Kind of Strategies And Mindset Is Required For This Role?

You have to know where you are going and set your mind to the destination. Being determined, ambitious, consistent, and persistent are some of the things to have your mind set on in order to be successful. You have to be that kid again, you know the one who keeps on asking and trying until they make it happen, that has to be you. Never give up and always bet on yourself.

How Do You Stay Motivated In Your Work?

Staying motivated is easy, I actually love what I do. If you have to constantly stay or get motivated, you may want to reexamine to see if you are actually doing what makes you happy. What I do is not a chore, it’s a blessing to be able to do and be who I am.

Describe A Time When You Failed In This Role And The Lesson You Learned?

I am not sure if there is ever a time that I have failed, because I haven’t given up yet. I am resilient. I am constantly achieving my end goals. Failure isn’t an option when you are the common denominator, just pivot.

Tell me something fun that not many people may know about you.

I am actually very comical and can make almost anyone laugh.

If You Could Time Travel, When Would You Go?

I wouldn’t time travel. As we know, if you time travel, the events are always altered in the process.

What’s Your Best Natchitoches Memory?

My best Natchitoches memory would be the collection of memories that I have made since 2012 of coming to NSU.

What Is The Best Piece Of Advice You’ve Received?

Just because someone has a business, does not mean that they are business minded.

What Accomplishment Are You Most Proud Of?

My most accomplished moment is this one right here, the one where I am currently living. I get to help so many people in just a short amount of time. Impacting lives for the betterment of people is my biggest accomplishment, now and forever.
