Hello and welcome to my site! I am excited about walking with you down your path of entrepreneurship. Where it is a path of hills and valleys it is also a path of discovery, fulfillment and victory. My love is not only for business ownership but for helping others bring their passion to profit. Everyone is passionate about something either personally or professionally, but are they living and working that passion? I ask my clients all the time, “If you were not getting paid in your business, would you still want to get up and conduct business every day?” If the answer is yes then Push Your Passion!
In order to live that passion and drive it to completion you have to take a good look at self. Many business owners start a business without doing a “self exam”. Am I a people person? Do I like sales? Do I have management skills? Or do I just like to cook, so I will open a restaurant. We need to take a look at ourselves to see if we have the mind, body and soul to walk, skip, and run down the path of entrepreneurship.
