Tell us about yourself

As a career coach, I met countless clients who had taken popular career tests that didn't give them the career clarity they wanted. While career clarity coaching can be very helpful, it’s relatively expensive. Working one-to-one with over 7,000 clients over 18 years, I developed a career clarity coaching model that became the basis for our very affordable and effective Career Clarifier test.

Launching a new career test is challenging, and I’m driven by a deep desire to help everyone discover jobs and career options they will enjoy, excel at, and be proud of.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

I’m proud that my cofounder and I have designed, built, and launched a technology product that greatly improves people’s lives.

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

Building brand visibility and awareness are challenging for a small business without a marketing team.

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

  1. It takes persistence and resilience to launch a business.
  2. Create your marketing strategy far in advance of your launch.
  3. Surround yourself with a team with the skills, knowledge, and abilities you don’t have.
