5 Minutes with a Founder Series

Updated: May 17

I want to share your story.


Over the last few months, I’ve been re-engaging my network. It has been so fun learning about what people are building these days. It’s such good stuff that I don’t want to keep it to myself.


So I am launching a series of stories about, well, YOU!


Business owners, leaders, and founders—you all have a story to tell. Whether it’s a personal journey to success or your company story, sharing stories can be a powerful way to connect and inspire.


And while it may seem like some people’s stories are more interesting than others, the truth is that everyone has a story that is worth sharing. When you share how or why you built something, you give others a glimpse into who you are and what you’re made of. It allows them to see the world through your eyes and understand different experiences. What’s more, sharing your story can ignite curiosity and help others see the possibilities in their own lives.


I’ll go first.


Give us the quick and dirty version of what you do

I use my 20+ year bank of buyer behavior knowledge in industries spanning public policy, housing, public safety, technology, and psychology to help founders connect with their audience. In other words, marketing. But not the boring kind.


Why did you build this business?

I am bossy.


What do you love about what you do?

My favorite day on the job is when a founder calls me up all excited because of a media placement or a competitor that has “stolen” a marketing idea.


I also love connecting people and resources.


What is something that contributed to your success you wish you had learned earlier?

Network your ass off. Seek board and committee appointments. Serving on a committee does two things: it expands the people you know, and participation increases your confidence in voicing opinions.

Ok, now it’s your turn! If you want to participate, send me a message. There is no cost other than a few minutes of your time.
