When Sarah Levitt interviewed me for The Making Magnificence Project and asked what has shaped my life and my journey as an entrepreneur, this is what I told her:
When I was only 5 years old, my kindergarten teacher said she believed that if I was sent into the world right then on my own, I would survive.
I dropped out of high school before I finished my last year, so I don’t have a high school diploma.
In my early 20s—like most young people—I had a poor relationship with my credit card company and found myself in debt.
But, that part of me that existed as a 5-year-old, the drive that my teacher saw in me, still exists today and is why I am successful as an entrepreneur.
I always figure it out and I will always find a way. Just like my teacher said when I was 5, I will find a way to survive.
The Making Magnificence Project is an ongoing conversation series capturing portraits in leadership. Host, Sarah Levitt, has business owners join her to discuss their journey to success in an effort to help others find similar success.
In the interview, Sarah and I also talk about…
- My business superpower
- The traumatic event that is the reason I wanted to be in business for myself
- Having confidence as a business owner and not being afraid to make big decisions
- This skill of knowing how to make money and not being afraid to lose it
- The difference between being kind and being nice and how that impacts your clients
- My thoughts on risk mitigation and the importance of understanding the financial side of your business
- And more…
