We had the good fortune of connecting with Danitzia Singh and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Danitzia, what is the most important factor behind your success?
The most important factor behind my success is passion. If I didn’t absolutely love what I do, then I probably wouldn’t be very good at it. I think that is what attracts my clients most. They see my excitement about teaching. My passion for this job is what drives me to succeed. I have had to adapt this past year and teach online to preschoolers. This became a good thing for my business though, I have more students enrolled now than I did before the pandemic! Passion is what drives my creativity, keeping my ideas fresh, new, and consistent! When I see the children retain what I have taught, it shows me that what I am doing is working. My goal is to provide the foundation to their future success.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
My preschool is Montessori-inspired so a lot of effort and thought goes into the activities we do with the children. I am most proud of the testimonies I hear from past clients. I get so many texts and emails throughout the years from past clients thanking me for creating a learning foundation for their children. Keeping my business full was easy, but keeping everybody happy was not always easy. I learned that not everybody is meant to be your client and that is okay. I learned not to lower my prices for anyone who did not see the value and quality of my teaching. I want the world to know that although I do know a lot about children and teaching, I also have a lot more to learn. I like to think of myself as a teachable teacher. I truly believe that in life we never stop growing or learning.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
This question excites because I was born and raised in Sacramento! The great thing about Sacramento is that it is in between both Lake Tahoe and San Francisco. I would take a few days to explore those two places during the week that my friend visits. I would also take them to some of the best known places in Sacramento. We would start by going to one of many and great coffee shops midtown has to offer. I would then take them to some of my favorite restaurants for lunch. For the best Mexican food, I would suggest Zocalo. For the best sushi, I would suggest Mikuni Sushi and for a classic restaurant that has been in Sacramento for over 30 years, Tower Cafe. Of course we would have to stop in DOCO Sacramento for some shopping at my favorite clothing store, Identity Boutique! DOCO (Downtown Commons) is home to the new Sacramento Kings arena, The Golden 1 Center, so, if its during basketball season, we would definitely go check out a game! Speaking of games, Sacramento is also home to the Sacramento Republic FC, a USL men’s soccer team on the verge of joining the MLS. Their supporters’ club, the Tower Bridge Battalion, makes every game even more fun with their Sacramento related chants and songs! Speaking of Tower Bridge, we’d have to also pay a visit to Old Sacramento, the riverfront historic district with it’s Gold-Rush era buildings, cobblestone streets, museums, and shops. The great thing about living in Sacramento is that there are also other places to visit like the wineries in Clarksburg and farmers markets in Elk Grove and midtown Sacramento.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My husband for sure! Before starting my business I would always second guess myself. I would often say or think “what if I fail?” My husband would always reassure me that that wouldn’t happen. He would often tell me that I will succeed in both opening up my own preschool and practicing real estate. He even helps me create content for brands! He is always behind the scenes helping me with lighting or helping me rearrange things for photos. Without his support, I may still be at my 9 to 5 job. Even now when I question myself, he always reassures me that I will make the best decision.
