How I am doing it:
After building a business from scratch as a single parent with no other source of income, to approx. $200 million in assets under management, 25 years later I sold my business. The original intent was to retire. Shortly before the business sold, I decided that I did not want to die with the over 25 years of knowledge I had gained on how to raise a family as a single parent and how to build and run a successful business. So, within a few months of the sale of the business, I set up a new business. I am now a national speaker and consultant to help business owners do a better job for their clients and improve their bottom line. And speak on topics to help individuals live a successful life and realize their dreams. As a Trainer, Educator, Motivational Speaker and Entertainer, I help improve performance, build success and leave audiences energized, educated and excited about their future.
On the personal side, I love caring for my grandchildren twice a week and for 4 weeks in the summer for the last 14 years and also have been looking after my 87-year-old mother’s care for the last ten years. After being divorced for 12 years I remarried. My husband and I travel often locally as well as to different parts of the world.
In the last several years I have been up in a hot air balloon, parasailing, rode in a sailplane (no engine) and swam with dolphins, a beluga whale, and stingrays. Realizing I only have this one life to live, I want to really live it now. Life is what you make of it. How are you making yours?
