How Did You Start Using Your Talents?
After several years mostly enjoying a corporate job, she recognized her entrepreneurial streak. Drawing on her advertising, marketing and writing skills, her first startup did not catch fire, so she returned briefly to corporate work, never losing her desire to create her own destiny. Then EntrepreurOnFire came along.
The Most Impactful Turning Point?
Getting passed over for an “in the bag” corporate promotion strengthened her entrepreneurial resolve. “Looking back, it’s one of the best things that ever happened to me…a huge lesson. I realized nobody else could give what I wanted to me. I could only create and give that to myself.“
The Most Powerful Lessons Learned?
“It’s easy to get into a comfortable routine, living a robotic life. That’s what I was doing. Waking up every day with the same feeling, going into an office, doing a job I didn’t like.
I had to break through the mindset that said life had to be that way.”
