It All Began When They Said "No."
It has been your dream. You knew it the first time you set up that lemonade stand when you were a child. That first customer came to your table, you told them about your product, they gave you some money, and you were hooked– you wanted to open your own business.
As we grow up, people might start to tell us all of the reasons why our business idea is crazy, or it just won’t work. I am here to tell you— it can work!
Sometimes it is taking that first step. It is identifying what is holding us back, and conquering that item/fear.
I remember when they told me I was crazy. I didn't want to work a normal 9-5 job, but instead I wanted to start something... I wanted to make a difference. I had the drive, the passion, and the knowledge. I decided it was time to be an ENTREPRENEUR!
i bring a phd in organizational leadership, a masters in business administration (MBA), a Masters in Public administration (MPA), and a Masters in Higher education administration.
I have to be completely honest here, and tell you, I didn't even know the word ENTREPRENEUR until I was out of college. I just knew that the normal 9-5 wasn't going to work for me. I found myself working for amazing nonprofits and the hours became more like 7 am - midnight. I was so consumed in my cause that nothing else mattered...but then I still felt that tug to make my personal dreams a reality. That is when I started a business, and then another one, and then another one. In there I helped to launch several nonprofit organizations. I had some that were very successful, and some that were not....but I learned with each and every one.
I believe very strongly in a few key things:
1. I believe in God and his words as found in the Bible
2. I believe that my family is key to any of my success
3. I believe that helping others succeed is my calling in life
I am so blessed to have an amazing family. My husband, Dr. Scott Briggs, is the love of my life. He is a chiropractor in our small town, and we own a clinic together. We have three beautiful children: Jordan, Reagan and Jackson. They are my everything. We also have two very spirited dogs-- Cooper and Tillie.
