90% of tech startups fail – let’s change that.
Navigating the exciting and challenging world of starting a business can be rough. Taking your idea to inception, gathering the resources to launch, and inviting people to support your vision is one of the toughest and most rewarding things we can ever do in our career. If you read my blog, you will know that 61% of Americans want to start a business and over 90% never do. Why? Because they lack the self-confidence to take action on their dreams.
What if it didn’t have to be that way?
It doesn’t. When you have a solid system and the right mentors, everything can change. You can take your idea and step-by-step, you can get it out there to the world. Through speaking and my show, Raw and Real Entrepreneurship, my vision is to help people grow, scale, and exit successful businesses.
We all face challenges.
Like you, I have had my share. We have great years and we have growing years. My growing year came in 2000 when I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, lost my business, and became a homeless single mother living on my brother-in-law’s sofa. It was time for a wakeup call. I had achieved success early on as a professional athlete, media personality, and business owner. Unfortunately, I lacked the wisdom, proven formula, and mentorship to use my success as a springboard for helping others and in my quest to be everything and do everything, I lost everything. It was humbling and it was powerful. It was my ‘never again’ moment. I made a vow that I would spend the rest of my life empowering others however I knew that I had to empower myself first. I got to work and I started a business. Within 3 years, my business was earning six figures. Within 7 years, it was earning seven figures. Using my past pain to fuel my purpose, I have dedicated my life to helping small business owners succeed. Today, a lot has changed in my life and I want you to know that anything is possible. In addition to media appearances on CNN, CNBC, Fox, Lifetime, and being quoted in Forbes, MarketWatch, and Yahoo Finance, I have built three award winning sales teams totaling over $2.0 billion USD in sales, oversee three companies, have co-founded an artificial intelligence company – RadiusAI, am a tech investor, keynote speaker, best-selling author, and am a graduate of the prestigious MIT Sloan School of Management. I regularly do speaking events for leading tech companies like NVIDIA, HPE, Intel, and Lenovo. On top of all of it, I have four kids, still get the workouts in, and have been with my husband since 2000. I believe that with clarity and certainty, there can be no overwhelm. My goal is to help you gain that clarity and certainty so you can grow a successful business in a healthy, fulfilling way.
