    I am the master of my own destiny. I've put in the long hours and endless nights which has created many opportunities for myself. I knew when I graduated from college that the way to rise to the top is by creating the empire. I work hard and play harder.

    Endlessendlessendlessendlessendless....endless hard work from Jan 1980 to Jan. 2005. Total focus on the needs of my clients. I attacked my clients' competitors with superior creative concepts and execution. I lived to take market share away from my clients' competitors. And then came the internet. Everything became digitized. I still work with one client as an advisor. Time to do other "stuff."

    My business success? Lots of factors I guess -- trying out lots of avenues of media, and finding the corridors of opportunity along the way. I work hard, am dependable, and deliver to my clients - always. Not a flake counts a lot in being a Youtuber and also running a few companies. The business I own: I own a media production company. I'm hired to produce videos where typically I'm representing companies showing products to my Youtube audience within my Youtube videos. Also, I run a commercial production company, where I hire actors/actresses to demonstrate products for website demonstrations or Amazon sales videos. I also am hired as a speaker, and marketing consulting for companies. I'm currently Chief Marketing Director for a new start up, part time as well. I host a number of TV shows, including a travel show, cooking show, and a news show about the coronavirus. I have a team of people that work for me to help in my business.

    Fake it till you make it...... or break it. A lot of pretending to know what I'm talking about. A lot of convincing people to believe in me and what I could do for them, or to them. An unhealthy obsession over creativity, statistics, patterns, and growth.

    I treat every client as I would like to be treated in any transaction or phone call. With respect and no ego. You never know where someone is from or what they have seen to gain the knowledge they have.

    I am a single Mom who has lived most of my life helping others. After my husband died I had to stop teaching and support my family. I became certified to sell products that I knew everyone needed and gave me the opportunity to be available to my children. I wanted to make sure that they would never go without and that the money I inherited would not be wasted.

    The biggest thing that people underestimate for business success is the degree to which risk is required. There is absolutely no chance of success without risk. Risk requires tolerance for ambiguous situations where outcomes are unclear. This makes most people very uncomfortable, which is why entrepreneurs are so unique.

    Listen to my employees and give them the tools to succeed and not set them up to fail. And definitely inspect what I expect from them in return. Support and take very good care of the people that take care of me. And pay above average wage and a great benefit package. Keeping in tune with all parts of the company not just the money, you need happy people that want to work for you, and happy to come to work everyday not dread it.

    For 35 years I achieved my success by being a very compassionate and trust worthy advisor to my many clients. Growing up in the financial services industry when dealing with peoples wealth it was always important to be a great listener. By always doing the right thing and staying conservative I was able to build a very successful investment firm in the land of many Wall St giants

    The persistent application of effort, a dose of good luck and being able to see trends ahead of time. Being able to determine when to take risk, knowing when to delegate, understanding a business is really the people it is made of. Have passion for whatever it is that you do. That's the fuel that get's you through the hardest of times. Know that everything takes longer than you expect.
