1)How long have you been in business: 5.5 years
2) How did you get into your business: After being in corporate for 20+ years, the company I was working for decided to close their site. So, I decided to take all the things I loved doing and start my own business. I became John Maxwell certified and started my business to coach, train and speak on leadership, communication and emotional intelligence. It’s been the best decision I have ever made.
3) What is one of your biggest challenges running your business: : Learning to balance my business, husband, my self-care and four parents that we care for, has been a challenge. Losing my Mom this month is definitely a challenge. Business is on hold for this month. Thankfully I am in a place where I can make that decision.
