Today we’d like to introduce you to Alisha Still.
Hi Alisha, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstory.
I’ve been in the hospitality industry for 14 years. I started off as a hostess. I was a hostess at clubs, restaurants and private events. I fell in love with the industry because I could always be myself. Plus, the pay was always great. Especially once I climbed the ladder and moved into serving and bartending. After years in the industry, I decided to take the next step and start my own mobile bartending company. My first mobile bartending company, I was partnered with a close friend. We both shared the same passion for bartending, and she motivated me to start our own business. We were very sucess with our company, especially during the pandemic. Then life hit us! I gave birth to my first child September 30, 2021. My passion became more intense. I decided that I wanted to start my business over on my own. I wanted complete control and to put my all into what I love. My daughter gave me the confidence I always had but never knew. I was terrified that I would fail. I knew that there was no way I could because my daughter is my motivation. Today I am booking more gigs before and NOT failing by any means. Honestly with complete creative control my business is thriving. My business is who I am and that’s always the mission throughout my career, to just be myself. Bombtenders and events is my second baby!
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
Honestly so far it’s been a smooth road with Bombtenders and events. I am very confident when it comes to my business and that helps me stay on top of everything. I have the best clients and they make the job so much easier for me.
