TITLE: Co-founder
COMPANY: Benson Development Group, LLC

What the nominator said:

“Precious is a leader in every area of her life, but most importantly, she sacrifices her time and resources to help others create a better existence. She truly has a heart for serving her community, in particular as founder of CHEC (Capturing Hope Empowerment Center) and by serving on the board of directors for Sussex County Action Prevention Coalition.”

Social media platform you can’t live without:

“Pinterest. You can plan your whole life on Pinterest: weddings, birthday parties, meals, etc. I absolutely love this site.”

Biggest break:

“I don’t feel I’ve had my biggest break yet. I set goals according to my desires. Once I accomplish something, I push myself to and through the next goal I’ve set.”

Two words that best describe you:

Persistent and overcomer.

Work/life balance technique you recommend:

“It’s important to enlist a good support system because we all need a little help sometimes. I try to create a boundary between balancing work and personal time by leaving work at work. Lastly, I spend as much quality time as I can with my husband and two kids no matter what we’re doing.”

Your advice for the next generation:

“Be brave, take risks and don’t be afraid to fail. Be accountable to yourself and push yourself to becoming a better version of you. Don’t pass judgment because everyone can do better.”

In one sentence, define success:

“Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it.” – Henry David Thoreau
