I am an executive that loves small to medium businesses. “There is an element of excitement about making all the pieces fit and work together to achieve success.” I am an MBA graduate from BYU with early career experience in the semi-conductor, polycrystalline diamond, and electronic manufacturing industries. I credit my early experience as the foundation to my startup success with Precision Assembly, Creating Keepsakes Magazine, and my work with Inspire Graphics and Big Picture Classes. I enjoyed serving on the Orem City Council for 14 years and have been the Director of the Entrepreneurship Institute at UVU where I helped students create their own success stories.
Business owners often start their business with a vision of what their business will allow them to achieve in their personal lives. The day-to-day realities of running their business take over and they lose track of how their business should be aligned with achieving their personal vision of success.
If you are a business owner, ask yourself the following questions:
- Are you ready to take your business to an entirely new level?
- Who’s in control – you or your business?
- How are you at balancing your business and personal lives?
- Do you need help seeing the opportunities available to you?
- Do you feel like you’re fighting fires all alone?
- Where do you turn to for the truth about your business?
