Tell us your name and a little about yourself.

Lisa Song Sutton. I’m a serial entrepreneur and former Miss Nevada.

What exactly does your company do?

I own several companies including Sin City Cupcakes – Vegas’ #1 alcohol-infused cupcake company and Ship Las Vegas – an independent mailbox rental/shipping store that provides solutions for small business owners.

What were the biggest challenges you have faced and how did you overcome them?

One of the biggest challenges I have faced is being underestimated. I was the shortest contestant and oldest contestant at the Miss Nevada pageant the year I won. I have consistently been one of the only women in the room at significant board meetings and negotiations. I think it’s a strength to be underestimated. Make sure you know your information inside and out so that when the time comes, you shine.

What piece of advice do you wish someone had given you at the start of your career?

Be confident because they will make room for you at the table.

Who are your biggest influences and people you admire and why?

My biggest influences are primarily my parents. They taught me multi-tasking, discipline and frugality. Next are some incredible mentors I have in my life. I’m blessed to have extremely mentors who also go out of their way to give back to the community.

None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are?

I am incredibly grateful to my business partners and operational staff. I am not a one-woman show. I have operational partners and amazing staff in all my endeavors and without them, I wouldn’t have been able to help build these companies.

What do you see as your greatest success in life?

I am grateful to be in a position to reach other young women and hopefully empower them through my journey. The impact I can make within my community is my greatest success in life.
