Guiding Principle, Quote or Mantra

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said. People will forget what you did. But people will never forget how you made them feel.” – Maya Angelou

Tripped Up in a Partnership

Sandy was uncomfortable with a business partnership she was in and ultimately the partnership collapsed right before they were going to launch their offering. What she learned is the importance of clarity.

The “DUH” moment that changed your partnerships forever

The big DUH for her was her marriage. She was with the wrong person for 23 years and no longer believed love was possible. Then she had a wake up call and hope was renewed. 

Proudest moment in partnership

She and her ex-husband parented very differently and it was very divisive. She learned how to see the partnership in a new way. This new perspective led to her daughter saying “It feels better here.”
