• When did you decide to be a “woman entrepreneur” and why?
Twenty years ago I began working as a party plan consultant very part time. I knew that whatever I did, I wanted to work for myself and never have a boss. I am creative, independent and like to strike out in new territory. My part time business grew over 18 years, when I decided it was time to follow God’s lead and move on to something new. I have followed that dream and created my coaching, training and consulting business for female direct sellers and women in business.
• Describe your business services and why someone would want to work/buy from you?
I am passionate about leadership. I believe each of us is a leader, beginning with how we lead ourselves, then others then a leader of leaders. I work with individuals to bring out their unique God given talents so that they can fulfill His place for them on this earth. I am a professional business coach, offering my coaching services primarily over the phone, so am available to anyone, anywhere. I have 18 years experience working from my home and leading other women who do the same. The majority of my clients are female direct sellers, although I have coached women in traditional corporate jobs and women who own other types of business. I have been in their shoes. I am uniquely equipped to pull out the best in my clients and to help them face their obstacles head on. I do this with compassion and caring. If a women is challenged to move forward in business or has a dream but no idea how to attain it, I am the coach for her. .
• What advice would you give to inspire other women to own/start their own business?
When you have a vision or dream that keeps nagging at you, you are playing short when you don’t follow through. You are enough; God created you to fulfill his will for you and when you do, your dreams will come true.
• What is your heritage and ethnic background?
I am a true American, a blend of many varieties of caucasion….
