I am not here to convince you to like me through a flowery, fluffy intro.
This about page does not follow the online guru format ….because I am not an online guru.
I am a real businessperson, a regular person who happens to have taken the talents I have and the opportunities I’ve been given and convert them into a few wildly successful businesses.
I’m not a guru but rather a wingman, here to be for you, the person I needed when I stalled out in scaling and adapting as by businesses grew…..fast.
I am here to remind you that success is not a title….those who have had it know this.
After my first company profitably hit fastest growing 50 and top 100 lists, broke the tens of millions mark …and then the second did it too, I started to feel disconnected, like I was losing my edge, I was aware that I was in danger of losing myself too.
Truth is, it is lonely at the top and at every natural growth point or plateau.
Whether you are trying to break your first million, ten or fifty….we all feel very much the same, we want growth and we know we can’t keep going on the way we have been, because both you and the game have changed since you started out.
When this is as true to you as it was to me, it is time to get Futureproof.
If you think that my experience, insight and a few stories about my continued pursuit of improvement could be useful,
please do something about it. My communications vary in consistency, are sometimes funny,
always thought-provoking and I take liberties with grammar and the status quo….sound just right?
The worst thing that happened to me was being named the country’s best business woman….why?
I am an outlier. Always have been. Never hung much in the spotlight or middle of the road….I just worked hard, built things, connected people and did it for the joy of it….and then all of a sudden, all eyes were on me.
I spent two years showing up and being the person I expected you to expect me to be.
“What do people expect from an international award winning entrepreneur – a woman – a mother – and on and on?”
Finally, I said to hell with that.
I started showing up by asking myself just this: “What would I expect of myself?”
Seriously – if I employed someone to make the connections I do, to do the work I do with people, to make the change that happens, to make the money I do, to be of service, to accurately represent me – what would I expect of them.
When there is a different standard – there is a misalignment.
I used to show up for you – the plural “you.”
Now I show up for Y O U.
I’m not looking to serve everyone – only the right people.
