My business cards say things like Infrastructure Services Manager and Business Sidekick.
But when you get right down to it, I'm so much more - I'm a techie, an entrepreneur, a thoughtleader and a business strategist.
I'm also a huge believer in the power of dreams and finding ways for technology to fuel them.
My heart glows when I see women going after their dreams and my heart breaks when I see women feeling held back because of technology or circumstances. Or because they doubt their own brilliance.
The barrier to entry for starting a business or doing anything these days is so low. Technology is the game changer.
And so I teach people how to use technology to bring their dreams to life. I use all the skills in my backpocket like marketing, business and technology to help my team deliver the wireless and wired Internet needed to put on amazing events and conferences. And in my off hours, I use those same skills to teach people how to use technology to go after their dreams and help produce their big ideas so that they can share their brilliance with the world.
