Like many of us, my journey began by navigating through a conventional route. In an effort to figure out my place in the world, I found my way through education and trial and error in my career. When I was pursuing my college degree, I realized that I wanted to do something that would make a positive difference in people’s lives. Studying abroad gave me a different perspective and sparked an even greater desire to learn more. After I earned my undergraduate degree, I began my career in banking and finance. During that 13-year period, I worked with business owners to help them create a solid financial foundation. I also began taking classes about business and entrepreneurship and ultimately earned my MBA.
Taking the Leap
In 2015, I decided to leave my career to start my own business and took some time to discover the best fit. I met many talented professionals and became part of several organizations. I started a company named Seed Level Creativity Lab. I help individuals map out their ideal life and design a business (or career) that supports that ideal life. My programs – Seed Level Life Design™ and Seed Level Business Design™ – assist individuals, groups and businesses in creating the life they wish existed.
In 2016, I co-founded Medici MediaSpace, a collaborative, coworking community. In addition to office and conference space, there are video and audio studios available for media production. There are weekly strategy sessions and many events take place every day of the week. My partner took over the business in 2018 so I could pursue other opportunities.
Creating My Dream Job
I’m pursuing the job and lifestyle of my dreams by utilizing a system I’ve learned (and teach) called the “Entrepreneurial Time Management System.” It’s a research-based system for allocating your time in the most effective and efficient manner in order to maximize the return on your time invested. I have a tendency to chase a lot of opportunities and projects and if it weren’t for my system, I wouldn’t be able to accomplish so much. I thrive on teaching others how to maximize their time and pursue their dream job and lifestyle.
My Role at the Saint Louis Business Club
In addition to my experience in finance and working with business owners, I’ve had the honor of building a community and have been part of many productive projects. The Saint Louis Business Club exists to inspire people to do and be their best. Our members are building a platform that connects people and fosters community. We specialize in strategic relationships, educational events and collaborative spaces.
