On Community, Connections, and Serendipity – an interview

Back in April of 2014, I had the joy and luck to be interviewed by Lila Simmons.  I’ve had the download link forever, and yet…I avoided sending it out into the universe.  It wasn’t that I didn’t love the conversation, but rather it was incredibly personal.  But here it is!  And I am stepping up and sharing.  It charts the path I’ve taken from corporate monkey to business for good advocate to being a business professor to finally being an entrepreneur.

It is pretty darn fun to hear myself chat about things I absolutely love, and one of the few interviews that doesn’t make me flinch (I’m getting used to listening to my word).  You’ll hear me speak about my friends, my career, moments of ‘meant to be’, and so much more.

My favorite takeaway?  “If you practice something everyday, it will start to stick if you want it to.” (You can tweet it out too!)

Ready to get to know me and my love of business better?

I felt so taken care of. This is a mandatory event for my business. I will attend as long as she’s keen on hosting them!”
