What is your business? Meeting Achievements, Inc. Meeting Achievements is committed to providing top-quality support, resources, and education to medical institutions, businesses, entrepreneurs, and non-profits — and the individuals who give them life.
When did you begin the business? The dream started in 2003.
What was your inspiration? I wanted to make a difference in the outcomes of events, not only in the design; but, also in the impact an attendee felt after participating.
When did you join BWUN? Fall of 2015
What is the most important thing you feel BWUN brings to you as a woman in business? It brings together like-minded women with similar goals.
Are you involved in any community projects? Yes, many. I have sat on various boards including Women in Bloom, and IU-NWI Alumni, amongst others. I am also a huge supporter of many local projects either thru collaboration or donation; including Worthy Women; NorthShore Health Centers; VNA; NWI Food Bank; 500 Turkeys; and Campagna Academy, to name a few.
Best piece of advice you would give to someone starting out in business. Focus on setting & achieving small incremental goals rather than trying to start a business and instantly build your vision of what the company should be in the years to come. Do monthly/quarterly/annual reflections and be willing to change courses, if it shows you should. Keep an open mind, look for the gaps in where/how things are done and improve upon them to differentiate yourself.
What do you feel you bring to our BWUN members? Not only am I a successful in my business; but, I have a degree in accounting and was a business consultant prior to starting this venture. I have a vast thirst for knowledge and love seeing new things implemented. I don’t believe in boxes.
