Tell us about yourself

I watched way too many people struggle to communicate effectively who they are at networking events. I knew how and I knew the people in my network, so I started helping. Word got out that I was helping, and the request to speak to other groups started pouring in.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Every single one of my clients. Watching clients gain the clarity and confidence to deliver the message that comes from believing is an amazingly gratifying gift.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

Pushing past limiting beliefs that cause self-doubt.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Know that your #1 job is sales.
  2. Join a network of people who will invest in helping you connect and grow.
  3. Join a mastermind or find an accountability partner who will hold you accountable to your goals.

Is there anything else you'd like to share?

Your brand message is the pivotal message that all of your verbal and visual communications will be measured by...communicating this with clarity makes it easier for the people you work with and the people you serve to understand what you do.
