I was in Technology sales for 25+ years, always responsible for revenue, bringing in new leads, bringing in logos and closing deals. I was a hunter applying old-school selling tactics!
Fast forward...got married and had kids and got to a point where "life happens". I went through a divorce and a few months after that got settled, I was diagnosed with breast cancer.
I quickly realized that I needed a BIG change. I was already burned out on Corporate America and always wanted to go out on my own and become an entrepreneur. After I got over my fear of the unknown, dealt with my personal hiccups, I started my business, the Thrive Ad Agency.
I soon realized "I don't have as many clients coming in the door as I anticipated!"
