Tell us about yourself

A few years ago, I attended Traffic and Conversion—one of the absolute top digital marketing conferences in the world—put on by Digital Marketer. The conference was amazing-one of the best I’ve ever been to for top content.

But there was a watershed moment while I was there. I could walk right into the women’s room and pick any stall I wanted, but there was a line around the corner for the men’s room. Why? Because the conference had about 98% male attendees.
The women attendees were Marie Forleo, Lisa Sasevich, JJ Virgin, and about 20 other really cool women! But they were the minority-BY FAR!!

Why? I can't say with 100% certainty. I will say that most of the speakers were men. I will say it was a tremendous tech-heavy conference-and stereotypically, and women aren’t as interested in tech. But the thing that really stood out to me is that tech is one of the keys to our marketing future, and if this was any indication - women were going to be left behind.

I knew then, at that conference, that creating an educational organization for women was my purpose in this world.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

After fifteen years in corporate America in my "dream job," I was dying a little bit every day, going to work and building someone else’s business, someone else’s wealth, and someone else’s dream. In 2010, I left corporate and built THREE multiple six-figure businesses - with almost a million dollars in gross revenue!

Although building a million-dollar business is AWESOME on the ego - I was WORKING MYSELF TO EXHAUSTION to pay for everyone and everything else!
On the outside, it looked like I had the world at my fingertips.

On the inside, I was under a tremendous amount of stress. Despite owning fitness businesses, I was gaining weight again, I was exhausted, and I frequently called my parents, crying, wondering WHY?

Ultimately, I’m an "achiever" by nature, and I was using my income as my scorecard-whether I really got to keep it or not! After a near breakdown, I decided it just wasn’t worth it anymore, and it certainly wasn’t the life I wanted to live!
So I did something radical: I sold the "golden goose"—the business really generating the big income (but also the business that was generating 98% of the expenses), and I focused on my six-figure consulting business—that had minimal expenses, minimal staff, but awesome technology and systems—because I had built it that way.

From that moment on, I have focused on helping women build SIX and SEVEN figure businesses with less staff, less stress, more systems, and more income!

Today, I work 4 days a week, and I truly love my business again!

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

Managing growth.

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

  1. Pick something you love.
  2. Get REALLY clear on what you want your life and business to look like before you start building it.
  3. Have a community of people around you to support you when things get hard.

Where can people find you and your business?
