About this pro

How does your business stand out?

Never allow a person to tell you no, who doesn't have the power to say yes. My career has been defined by that quote. I have heard too many people tell themselves “no” rather than ”yes” and it breaks my heart. In sales- it breaks your business.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I work with business owners and people in transition from career to business. Are you great at what you do, but have trouble turning it from an expensive hobby into a business. WHY? In corporate America, I helped companies make a lot of money, but like so many others, I found myself miserable in that environment. Now, I help people learn what I had to learn – how to clarify what is needed to build an enjoyable and profitable life, whether as a business owner, an employee or some combination of the two.
