2. Other than being an entrepreneur, who are you? Tell us about yourself.
I am a mommy geek with 2 great kids, a very patient husband, and a golden retriever that sheds A LOT! After graduating from university with a degree in computer science, I worked for IBM for 15 years. I took a two year leave of absence from IBM where I researched and wrote a book – Homework Help 4 Kids: Cool Internet Sites That Make Learning Fun! I resigned from IBM at the end of my leave of absence, and have since run two successful businesses, all the while trying to maintain a balance in my life and my sanity….did I mention I have a VERY patient husband??
3. What motivated you to go into business for yourself?
I went into business for myself when I realized that the fast corporate life didn’t coincide with what I wanted for myself, and my family.
4. How do you overcome challenges and obstacles in your business?
It’s not hard to overcome challenges and obstacles when you love what you do. I continue to remind myself why I became an entrepreneur, how much I truly LOVE technology and learning, and the flexibility that working for myself provides. The rest just takes care of itself!
5. What are your greatest strengths as an entrepreneur?
My greatest strengths as an entrepreneur are: 1) I am disciplined. 2) I am a planner. I know what needs to be done, and I make a plan to get there 3) I am a firm believer that process = efficiency. When I can turn a concept into a process, it’s music to my ears.
