While in the process of a divorce I took my children and with no child support, alimony or other source of income, moved 70 miles away and started my own business.
At the new location I was offered a salaried position at a higher pay then I had ever had before but realized they were hiring me at “the top of the ladder” leaving me no place to grow. I did not want a job. I needed a career.
I learned early on that getting in front of one client at a time would not build the business fast enough. It was imperative that I get in front of a lot of people quickly, but had little money to spend on marketing. I needed to “think outside the box” and find low cost ways to get the public to know who I am and what I can do for them. I got very good at marketing and media relations and put into place efficient and effective systems to enable me to build the business quickly.
I built the business from scratch to one of the top asset management and financial planning practices in the country with the parent company. With approx. $200 million in assets under management in 2007 I sold my practice.
With over 30 years of experience, I am now a professional speaker and coach to help business owners do a better job for their clients while improving their bottom line.
