I did not plan on starting a company. I always wanted to go work for a large multi-national business and be a Fortune 500 CEO. When I was a student, I looked at leaders like Meg Whitman & Ursula Burns as my role models. I started a global marketing company in Cambridge, MA 16 years ago after starting my career on Wall Street in the 80s and having a successful career in Corporate America at companies like Procter & Gamble and Coca-Cola and working at three different startups as the head of marketing. I leaped right after 9/11 when the company I worked for cut their marketing. I had nothing to lose. Being an entrepreneur provides me a platform to do work I truly enjoy with and for people I respect. Working for yourself and building a business you started in incredibly rewarding and gratifying. Since starting my business I have joined boards, become a mentor to the next generation of leaders and have helped build a very successful anti-bullying program that>50,000 middle school aged kids have gone through. As a marketing consultant, I can write articles, contribute to books and speak at events to share my experience and lessons learned. It has been a lot of fun; I joke that I am the accidental entrepreneur.
