My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a lady who has stumbled into the entrepreneurial world. She is the owner of Ash Said It LLC, which is a full service public speaking boutique, hosting receptions, fashion expos as well as upscale soirées. Which sounds great, but its the joining up the dots which is the most important part of this show. So how did the ex-military lady transition from Uncle Sam to Fashion Avenue? Well as she says “I had no plans to build a company. The thought never even crossed my mind. The past few years have been tough. I took care of my mom for 3+ years, and being a full time caregiver is a lot, although I would easily do it again. My mother never taught me how to be a lady. She showed me through her actions. She never let anyone take advantage of her meek yet resilient spirit. Thank God I inherited that spark! I buried my mom in 2014, which was the most difficult thing I’ve ever done in my entire existence. I was lost.
