Title: National Director of Social Sales
Favorite movie? Goonies & Mrs. Doubtfire
Upcoming Events: Gary V’s Agent 2021 January 17th Florida
Hometown: Consider this my hometown- moved here in 93 to go to high school – grew up in Palm Springs
First Job: I was a hostess for the original Manuel’s in central phoenix – I had a purple honda civic that always smelled like mexican food
Favorite AZ restaurant, venue, or activity and why? Tough one! I love Rokerij has a super cool vibe, great music and history! I also love to visit the resorts for dinner it makes me feel like I’m on vacation!
Who is someone that has had a major impact in the person you are today? A really good friend of mine had a terrible tragic medical issue come on unexpectedly last year and changed his life in 24 hrs. I changed my life after that and my perspective about appreciating our time here and how we live it – when that happened – I decided I would take risks and live life without settling. Life is short.
What is your most memorable mistake in business? My best mistakes are my biggest successes – not at the time, but each one had a valuable lesson for me to learn – mistakes are painful opportunities. Probably one major experience I learned from was my first real job and also in the major downturn in 2008 when we lost everything.
The biggest obstacle you’ve overcome – imposter syndrome
Someone who inspires you and why? of course all the major people that inspire everyone like Gary V and Seth Godin – but I find that the people closest to us always inspire us the most
Favorite quote? “People wonder why their 12 year old daughter is taking 10,000 pictures a day of things they would never care about. What they don’t realize, is that she’s not preserving images – she’s talking.” – Evan Speigel, CEO of Snapchat
Advice to someone pursuing a career path in what you do? Start. Do something every day for literally 24 months. People will tell you what your brand is – let them. You can’t figure that out unless you do and try many things. I also believe that writing an old fashioned book will make you an expert. Who cares if no one reads it. The discipline and research alone to make it will level you up. Never fake it until you make it – tell people you are making it and take them with you on the journey.
