What is a personal piece of advice (business advice/saying/quote) that you lean on and could pass on to others?
Have a great team around you and get rid of any negative people as they will slow you down and crush innovation.
Best business book you’ve ever read?
This book changed the course of my life...."See You At The Top" by Zig Zigler, I am a huge fan of stories that connect and inspire and Zig did a great job of sharing stories about self image, relationships, attitudes, work ethic, goal setting etc.
One misstep you took in your business that you could caution others about?
Hiring a person that one of my top performers wanted on our team, when my gut said NO. It ended in a lawsuit, thankfully I had EPLI insurance.
How to you de-stress after a particularly hard day?
A walk with my husband and our puppies, a good book, reflection on all that is good in our lives.
What’s something about you that would surprise everyone reading this?
Oh there are so many...I ran away at age 15 and again at age 50.
What EO benefit has been most valuable to you during these uncertain times?
The support of our community, it was a scary time for our company, we were full-stop on all physical video production for over a year, there were lay offs and restructuring that had to happen and without the PPP and all of the EO virtual zoom calls I would have gone under. I am so grateful for our tribe and all of the leadership in our chapter.
Any exciting plans for 2022?
Yes, we are rolling out a e-commerce platform that is a user friendly customizable video platform where large brands can store their video content and teams can customize it with a few clicks of the mouse.
