From 2014-2022 I was a trusted voice, advisor and mentor to many. To my clients I was a steady hand offering sound advice on how to use technology in the workplace in a trusted manner. During this time I leaned on and learned from my journey as business owner operator in many forms. Early on I worked with a firm to build a brand and learned the power of storytelling, core values and trust building.
This combined with my work ethic and past life experiences put me in a role where I can start helping others down their entrepreneurial path and journey. I am not a head in the clouds style coach and mentor, my tactical and brass tacks approach to business means that if you're really ready to take that first step, I will help get take that step and thrive.
Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. -- Steve Jobs
