What is your story? Or in other words, what made you your awesome self you are today?
I was living for everyone else & feeling unimportant & unseen until I stepped out from behind the camera & started connecting startups with the resources & focus they needed. Everything I had experienced & shot led me to help dozens of young businesses become wildly successful.
What message do you promote?
I want StartUps to be wildly successful and to think of me as their first stop to get there faster and more effectively.
In what capacity do you LEAD UP in your community?
I consult with StartUp Entrepreneurs, particularly women, to succeed faster by Validating ideas, connecting custom resources, and avoiding others' mistakes. I’ll show the specific path to take from where you are to where you want to be.
In business and/or in life, share a struggle you overcame that other women can relate to
I have a hidden disability. I have very little central vision because I got married in a cave & got hit with a fungus that caused blindness. Nevertheless, I learned to shoot & edit videos, tell others’ stories better than they do, and “see” past the surface to be able to share the heart of what’s important.
What is the most rewarding aspect of what you do?
I love seeing the light bulbs go off when I hear a startup’s story, and I start making suggestions and connections they would never have thought of.
How do you SHOW UP?
I’m a very confident listener. You have my attention.
If you could give one piece of advice for women who are entering the workforce or launching their own business what would that be?
Most people have a great product or idea, but they don’t understand business. Nobody does it alone, so get advice & help, at least from an accountant, a lawyer, AND a marketing person, and read my “10 Mistakes StartUps Make” so you can make your own mistakes instead of other peoples’.
