Over a 24 year span, I moved up the career ladder, the Wall Street ladder. I stepped into roles as Regional Product Director, Vice President and Partner.
Crashing the boys club was one heck of a ride. From stock markets crashing, to buyouts, listening to “dream stealers”, building a family, starting my own business, and finally, 9/11, shutting down my stock trading company. Somewhere along the way, part of that unstoppable, determined, Brooklyn girl, was left behind.
At 45 I found myself saying “What do I want to be when I grow up?” The thing is, I’ve always dreamed of hosting live success and personal development seminars. Believing in this dream for over 20 years transformed me into a “personal development geek”. I thought about going into coaching and motivational speaking, when it was only just evolving back in the 90’s.
However, I decided to go the safer route and build a successful direct sales distributorship, which actually involved coaching and motivating, with the added benefit of time freedom.
Through perseverance, I grew my direct sales team to close to 3000 distributors spanning the globe. And yet, something was still missing.
