“What anecdotes do you have that you think our audience can learn from (specifically in the area of Starting, Growing, and Funding a business)?

The simple act of starting was difficult for me. I am a perfectionist and would continually find reasons not to start for fear of failure. Growing has been more fun but takes different skill sets especially involving my ability to hire, train and manage to my dream. For funding I’ve not sought out the big money yet and again this goes back to my starting dilemma as I haven’t done it before and I’m afraid of failure. At the crux of it all, find people that will champion and push you. I have been fortunate to have my family and a handful of friends and colleagues who do that for me

What do you find important on your path/journey to becoming and being a successful entrepreneur or CEO?

I am a big proponent of collaboration and consensus to drive team’s success. I’m constantly surprised by people that don’t treat others the same way. It is important to keep a positive attitude with your eyes open, follow your gut, persevere and always treat others with respect. The world is a small place.”
