1) How long have you been in business:  9 months

2) How did you get into your business:  I have been coaching and mentoring millennial men and women for 15 years.  In 2014 I decided to become a financial advisor, and as I began to grow in the business I realized there was a big gap in what the financial services industry is offering our younger generation.  In Septemeber 2016 I decided to take my talents, wisdom and knowledge and combine it into a coaching and mentoring company that works with millennials to teach them how to manage their personal finances, careers and life so that they have the maximum opportunity to have lives that are purposeful and productive. 

3) What is one of your biggest challenges running your business:  I’m a small business that is growing rapidly.  The biggest current challenge I have is running all aspects of the operation.  I am steadily adding support but that takes time. I’m very impatient and I want to scale quickly so that I can serve as many clients as possible.

4) Tell us about a big achievement: 

--In your business:  As a brand new business I am on track to generate $100K gross profit in my first year!  I am grateful and overwhelmed by the response, and I know I’m on to something big.  Not only is my business profitable, but I am working with amazing clients who are transforming their lives.  I have created a 6 month mentorship program – SISTER Mentorship that is designed for the women to work together for 6 months.  I’m inspired daily by the risks they are taking!

--In your personal life:  To date my biggest achievement is being married for 12 years and having my beautiful 9 year old son.  Some days it’s amazing how my husband and I keep it all together with family, soccer and two businesses but we’re making it happen and I am proud of the life we’re creating.

5) Tell us about your family and personal interests/activities:  My husband and I were both born and raised in Las Vegas.  My siblings and parents live here still too.  I have four nephews who are very close in age and when we’re not on the soccer field supporting my son, we are spending quality time with close friends and family.  We keep things pretty simple and enjoy spending time close to home in Southern Highlands.

6) What is on your desk:  Right now I’ve got receipts that I need to scan for my CPA (LOL).  In addition to that I’m surrounded by loving sentimental gifts from clients and friends.

7) What resources do you use in business:  I am a big fan of technology!  I primarily market on Facebook, and I love anything that integrates.  Squarespace hosts my website, and my favorite calendar hack is Setmore.com – it schedules everything for me, and clients can access it to schedule as well.  It’s a lifesaver!

8) What books have you read recently:   Just finished Robyn Crane’s new book, Make More Money, Help More People.  And I’m just diving into Danielle LaPorte’s White Hot Truth.  I always keep a Brene Brown and Maya Angelou book by my nightstand for evening inspiration, and more than reading I’m obsessed with Tim Ferris’s Podcast right now.

9.)  How can our membership find you to get to know more about you?
