Attended: Lift Off 3 (February 2011)

Where were you in your entrepreneurial journey before Lift Off? I was building my business at an erratic pace. Every week was a different experience: it alternated between moving slowly, leaping forward, skipping steps, and jumping over obstacles. There were too many times, however, when the business stood still, and I felt like I’d fallen down, and couldn’t get up. Overall, I did not have the tools or support to move up and move ahead, as fast as I wanted to move.

What are you up to now? I am jumping up and down with joy, excitement, inspiration and achievement (almost) every day. Fireball Network is moving forward with renewed energy and momentum. I am surrounded by a massive structure of support, feedback, ideas and advice from all my LiftOff peeps – who have become my Most Important, Most Trusted, Most Valued advisory board.

What was your favorite thing about Lift Off? The singing and the dancing! And the community of talented, caring, encouraging, brilliant, ambitious, and energetic entrepreneurs, aka, my fellow cast members. We all got together in the backyard and put on an incredible show!
