What’s the best career advice you have ever received?
“You’ll never fully embrace being a CEO as long as you’re acting like an employee for someone else.” – Todd Herman
What is your proudest career accomplishment and why?
Growing a business to 7 figures while still working nearly full time. It took tenacity, grit and a lot of perseverance to deliver high quality for my clients, and create a business that I loved.
What has been the hardest career moment and how did you overcome it?
Hands down the worst day in business and one of my biggest learning lessons came when I lost one of our biggest clients because he lost funds. I had to tell 13 VAs that they no longer had a job. This several years ago and I was so excited because this client was a good portion of our bottom line.
It forced me to innovate and find new solutions and products to offer so I could continue to provide job opportunities to these women I’d come to admire.
My team and I quickly came up with products to sell that we could delegate to the VAs who just had a blow to their income.
