What’s the best part of owning your own business?
I have more control over my life and my own economic production as a citizen. What I produce is mine and I am very proud of that. I am also able to assemble a team of colleagues to work with me who I trust and who I know are compatible with my personality. I simply feel as though I have much more control over my life and my career.
What is your motto?
Lead with your heart.
What would people be surprised to know about you?
I skate on a roller derby team which consumes a substantial amount of my time – but it keeps me balanced and healthy. Roller Derby also connects me with a social group that I don’t have to work hard to connect with. Three days a week – there they are! This wonderful group of hard (hitting) working women.
