How to work with me

What I can offer

I can offer my time, knowledge, and experiences as a professional woman, business owner, student, parent, spiritual life, and employee at the same time. I have learned the meaning of "life on life terms", and respect the process. Life can place demands on you that require more than you have to give at the time but, how you navigate or negotiate with the demand determines your outcome. My greatest contribution to a mentor would be wisdom and understanding. Having a clear picture of where your going requires knowing where you are.

My expectations for a successful mentoring relationship

My expectations for a successful mentoring relationship are simple: * Dedication * Communication Commitment Respect

How entrepreneurs can prepare before we start

In brief, an entrepreneur should define what it is that he/she does with respect to doing business. Share with me the heart of the business (why you created this business), a 1 - 3 year business plan for the business, what is needed to manifest that plan, and the "market fit".
