In this episode we explore:

  • how she defines leadership: “The ability to inspire others to take action.”
  • early opportunities to work in retail, especially a family business, is a great learning ground for understanding sales, upselling, and work ethic.
  • how her business is ever-evolving: “80% of my revenue today is for services & products that didn’t exist two years ago.”
  • work/life integration (not balance) because she doesn’t have a personal life and a professional life – she has one life.
  • her advice to those getting started in their career: “Surround yourself with the people you aspire to be one day.”

What were the key takeaways you plan to put into practice this week and benefit from for years to come? Share your thoughts in the comments.
