3. What motivated you to do what you do in business? Was there an “aha” moment or a moment of innovation?
After working for billion dollar companies and startups for over 20 years it was time for me to launch my own company to work with talented organizations and entrepreneurs to provide them with exceptional go to and stay in market strategies.
The AHA moment came to me when I was freelancing and having to say no to some of the things that were not my core competency like design, videography and events. Rather than continue to say no, I created a company and recruited a dream team that provides end to end idea to launch services so we can say YES more often and work with amazing companies from idea through launch!
Challenges always happen and should be expected. It is how you handle challenges that puts you ahead of the rest. My approach to business challenges to make decisions based on facts coupled with my gut instinct. Sometimes this means a course correction and sometimes it means shelving something that isn’t working. At the end of the day if you lead based on facts and most importantly TRUST YOURSELF you are bound to make the right decisions, even if they are the tough ones.
5. What are your greatest strengths as an entrepreneur?
Staying positive through everything! It is so easy to get bogged down in the details, or discouraged from a bad day or experience. I always look at things as an opportunity or learning experience even if it is difficult or unpleasant. In that way I can always get value from a situation, improve myself and grow. You can laugh it off, even cry a little but you must always, without fail, move forward!
