Attended: Lift Off 2 (August 2010)

Where were you in your entrepreneurial journey before Lift Off? I had really just started things. I was completely overwhelmed and not quite sure how to make REAL money with it. I had lots of ideas but couldn’t focus or prioritize. I was working a part-time job and building my business on the side so I always felt scattered and like I couldn’t quite get into the swing.

What are you up to now? I left the Lift Off retreat feeling very focused. I was able to methodically create systems, build up a clientele and, within just a few months, I quit my part-time job. I’m now continuing to grow my business, making new products and tweaking my services. I still go through phases of being overwhelmed, but I have my Lift Off team to help me weed out the crap and focus on what matters.

What was your favorite thing about Lift Off? The people. Hands down, Liftoffians are the BEST group of people I’ve worked with. Everyone is passionate, creative, and driven. They keep me feeling inspired and like I really CAN do this. They are endlessly supportive and willing to drop everything to help answer a question or just provide a motivational kick-in-the-pants when needed. It’s amazing how close we all became in a matter of days. But these people are like family to me.
