I am a Canadian who grew up with a love for Broadway shows and New York City. In 1997 I made the move south and have been a New Yorker ever since. Although I grew up in an entrepreneurial household and always knew I’d have my own business, I was happily ensconced in Corporate America in the Broadway industry – win win!
Unfortunately after returning to the corporate world after my second son was born, my company restructured and I no longer had my dream job. As difficult as it was at the time, its been the best thing that has ever happened to me. Right then and there I promised myself I would never be in that situation again.
I started a wall decal company and for the first five years of owning my own business also consulted for shows. I truly know what it takes to start a company from nothing, pour tens of thousands of dollars into it, and grow it into something successful. Today, I still run my company and am incredibly proud of what we’ve made of it. About 3 years ago, I was at a trade show in Las Vegas chatting with a perfect stranger who wanted to tell me about her side business. I listened politely but in my mind could see where she was going and had only one thought “she has picked the wrong girl – not in a million years would I ever do something like that!”. But once I got back to NYC and researched the opportunity further, I recognized that with our without me this company was on its way to the moon. Brand name recognition, credibility of our doctors, effective products and a brilliant business model was not something I could ignore. Because I saw the vision of what the business model provided, I joined and have been able to keep that promise to myself that I am never going back to Corporate America!
I am grateful every day for the option to work from home and have flexibility around my family’s schedule. And the best part is, I love working with others who are passionate about growing and having an incredibly successful business. If this sounds like something you’re looking for, please reach out! I look forward to hearing from you!
