Tell us how you got into entrepreneurship?
I was the VP of my husband's commercial and residential painting company for about 10 years. I didn't really consider myself an entrepreneur at that time because I still worked a full-time job as a social worker. In 2014, I was let go from my teaching job after losing my husband. I couldn't find suitable employment so, I began travel booking and selling Mary Kay products. Women began to ask me to speak about my story at events and conferences.
What is one of the greatest accomplishments you have achieved in your business?
The greatest accomplishment I wish I could say was money, however it wasn't. Discovering my passion to help women small business owners plan and grow their businesses. I remember leaving the office one day saying "I love my job and I get paid to do it".
Where do you see yourself in the next 3-5 years? In 3-5 years?
International speaker, best selling author, and million dollar change agent that would have helped start and grow thousands of .small businesses.
What do you love most about being a CEO Chick?
I love the support and sisterhood. The Coaches have been so instrumental to my personal and professional growth.
Who inspires you?
I am not inspired by one woman but many women. Every woman who regardless of obstacles, continue to pursue their dream.
What is your favorite book/podcast you recommend to our CEO Chicks?
Honestly I don't listen to podcast. I enjoy reading blogs and articles.
What advice would you give other aspiring entrepreneurs?
Lay a solid foundation (business plan), create processes and procedures, repeat the strategies that work, and don't be afraid to take a chance on you. Visualize your best life and Execute it!
