First Gig – In her own words...
When I was seven years old, I asked my dad to set up a card table and chairs in the garage so I could have a little school for the other kids in the neighborhood. I invited four younger kids on my block to come over for my school the next day. My mom helped me round up paper, pencils, crayons, and elbow macaroni and string. I also brought out the pink plastic shoe I’d learned to tie my shoes on.

By the next morning, I was leading those kids in drawing, coloring, learning to tie their shoes, and making macaroni necklaces. A career was born!

In the third grade, I volunteered to work with the class of mentally disabled children in my school. By junior high, I knew I wanted to be a teacher. My first career, for my first 4 years out of college, was as a high school English teacher. I then moved into the corporate world, consult and train. And, I founded a speaking, consulting and training firm in 1995.

It all started with a little seven year-old girl who somehow knew what she loved to do and what her innate talent was. I am committed to helping people achieve success—in business and in life.
