Who is Deanna?
“I’m a Serial Entrepreneur, a Connector, as well as a Start Up Enthusiast. My mind goes 100 mph and I have to understand the “why” and “how” behind everything. If you give me an idea, I want to make it better. If you challenge me, I’ll accept it. I love helping and seeing other small businesses grow and I love surrounding myself with people who inspire me, aren’t afraid of risks and live outside of the box.
God is first in my life and I am nothing without Him. I have the most amazing boys, family and friends and I embrace my clumsiness, my inappropriate timed laughing and my many other quirks. I’m pretty ok being perfectly imperfect!”
How many times have you thought about starting your own business?
You have an idea but you’re just not sure how to make it into a business….OR
You have a product and started your business but you’re not sure what to do next?
I can tell you that you are NOT alone! I hear it all of the time.
If you believe there is more than the 9-5 rat race, then you’re in the right place!
I’m no different than any other woman. So who am I?
I’m a single mom who juggles her career and believes that family is a priority. I searched for a career that provided the balance I was so desperately searching for. What found was a feeling of coming up short in either my career or the time with my family. I did what any other person surrounded by a family of small business owners would do and I created the life I wanted!
I think I’ve always had that entrepreneurial spirit. My parents always encouraged my small business ideas as a kid and that carried into the time when I needed it the most. It happened when I was working in corporate America, working long hours, enjoying my job but missing time with my boys. It was the week before Christmas and my son who was 10 at the time told me that he wanted one thing for Christmas. I’m not going to lie, I was irritated. It was the week before Christmas and if a 10-year-old wants only one gift, I was certain that I would not be able to find it on any shelf!.
What he wanted was one day with me. Sit on the couch. Watch a movie. Just me.
That was it!!
I made the decision to make a change. To find a way to be home for my boys and be the mom that they needed. I’m not going to tell you that it was always easy, because it was far from it. I tried different businesses and found success as well as failures. It wasn’t easy to dust myself off and get back up again, but I always believed there was something more and was determined to find it, if not for me, but for my boys!
That everything I went through was for a reason. That every failure was probably more valuable than the successes. That anyone can create the life that they want if they believe in themselves and in their dream.
It’s because of those reasons that I get to share everything I’ve learned with you! There are three different ways you can work with me, depending on what best fits your lifestyle and your goals.
