How did you get into the industry? I had a few businesses before I got into consulting others on their business. In my first businesses, I was trying to figure it all out on my own and definitely stumbled most of the time. It was stressful… and often NOT profitable. Even though I was putting in the hours and work, I wasn’t getting very far. After having burnout and anxiety attacks, causing me to have to call 911 (thinking I was going to die), I learned that there just HAD to be a better, simpler way to becoming ’successful’ in business. So, I went on a mission to figure that out, and applied those principles to then create much stronger, simpler, better businesses. Then, once I started to get more traction myself, I saw the opportunity to start helping others do the same, as the right way I found to build a business wasn’t talked about nearly enough.

Career Advice? Some career advice I’ve learned is that it start and ends with your Vision. Where do you want to go? Who do you want to be? What does your ideal day-to-day look like? Being able to see and feel this will have you seeing things from a long-term perspective. So many get caught up in the day to day that we forget where we’re headed and what we really want. It’s not going to be all easy, and sometimes you’re going to have to roll up your sleeves and get stuff done you don’t want to do. BUT… Spending some time to get clear on your Vision will be a great guide to staying focused on creating the life and business you dream of within a short period of time. We’ve seen it over and over again, and I hope these answers help more entrepreneurs realize those goals!
