In 2011 I hit a breaking point. I was in a place that so many small business owners find themselves: Wildly overworked, severely underpaid, and desperately seeking relief from being owned by my business.
As a former nurse with my own home care company for almost 15 years, I was drowning in tasks, distracted by team drama, and dealing with employee disengagement. I was doubting my ability to be an effective leader, and went searching for help.
It was then that I encountered my now-mentor, John Maxwell, and when I started learning and applying his Maxwell Leadership Principles, I experienced a complete turnaround, as did my business. It grew 400% over a 5 year period, with my franchise being named top for revenue growth in my region. I was even awarded Small Business Owner of the Year in 2015, just 4 years after my breaking point.
I had turned my $7,000 investment in 1996 into a 7-figure business that I sold in June of 2020 - in the middle of the pandemic.
My passion for growth and development allows me to fan the flames of others' dreams. Now I show other small business owners how to maximize their leadership capacity and increase the effectiveness of their team so they can own their business without their business owning them.
After 32 years in Lincoln, Nebraska I relocated to the Dayton Ohio area to be close to family. When I’m not facilitating leadership or personal growth, you will likely find me on the floor with my granddaughter, Quinn or out on the court playing pickleball!
