KC Maker

I’m honored to be one of three women featured as a KC Maker.  Selected from among 50 fabulous nominees for my work in entrepreneurship, our stories appear in this KCPT special edition of The Local Show as part of a national PBS/AOL initiative celebrating women’s contributions to social change.

While continuing my own entrepreneurial adventures, I help business owners define what they want and mentor to assure their success.

By sharing here our lessons, ideas, and questions about business ownership, we’ll make the fun parts more so and the hard parts less so.

Grow with me in this quest for quality of life, energizing work, and marketability by signing up for my twice weekly blog and periodic emails.
