Like many, my goal was to graduate from a great University, climb the corporate ladder and get a big executive position with a healthy salary and nice title. And after graduating from Clemson University, climbing the corporate ladder for 10 years, and landing a six figure salary managing a $3 Billion dollar company my goal was pretty much met… I was 33… and I was left wondering “is this it?”.
For the most part, I truly enjoyed the work I was doing, I had an amazing boss, the salary was nice and the Boardroom meetings were entertaining… but I knew there was something more. More to life than creating the same financial projections month after month; and more to me than supporting one large corporation that is likely to make billions with, or without me, sitting in my office.
I was making a good income, but was I making a good impact? I knew I was made to do so much more.
One day while out shopping, the owner of the boutique I was in asked me what I did for a living, and I told her Finance. She asked if I could help her with her business finances… and that’s really where it all began.
You see, after just a few days of working with her and seeing the positive impact, it all made sense to me. The 10 years of corporate climbing was simply paid training to prepare me for the work I was put here to do. My passion of business finance met my purpose of helping women build the businesses of their dreams. In Corporate I thought I was fulfilled because I enjoyed the work I was doing; in my business I know I’m fulfilled because my client’s lives are positively impacted by the work I’m doing.
Now my days are filled supporting a small group of busy & successful businesswomen on everything from inventory analysis and financial projections to investor relations and process improvement. These women are ready to take their 6-figure and 7-figure businesses to the next level; and I am their on call Advisor ready to support them every step of the way.
Additionally, I coach & mentor other women in the Accounting, Finance & Tax industry - helping them build premium businesses & brands and stand apart from the rest.
