My name is Tina Richardson. I am a mother to 3 charismatic and active teenagers, a wife to my husband of 20 years, a sister, a daughter, a friend and an entrepreneur!
Throughout my 25-year career I have worked with amazing companies, intelligent people and strong leaders. So why now do I decide to create a company and run my own business? Simple really, I want and choose to make a difference in people’s lives. For most of my life my parents have been business owners. They experienced the peaks and valleys of being their own boss and being the ones responsible for their income. So you can imagine years ago when I resigned from my 10-year career with one of the big banks, my parents were less than thrilled.
I then took the path of Direct Sales for 10 years, as a way of running my own business, while being there for my children. The opportunity to work in the start up space in Social Media Monitoring with Radian6 and then to a Big Data Company, DataSift was too good to pass up. With this industry came an immense amount of knowledge, pride in your work and unbreakable relationships. What also came was acquisitions and downsizing.
As I reflected and worked through my personal leadership style I realized that through out my career I was missing something. PASSION! To me passion meant you wanted to save the world, so to speak., that is until I was introduced to the LMI program of Effective Personal Leadership for Women. I soon realized that my passion was serving others. Helping them succeed, in whatever they chose, by still being authentic.
I have chosen the path that allows me to be passionate, to be authentic, all while celebrating the successes’ of the people around me and the ones yet to come into my life. From starting work at the age of 12 making boxes in my parents pizza business, to now years later, I am honoured that you have taken the time to visit my site. I welcome the opportunity to work with you; your team and your business in whatever way my company can best serve you.
YOU are my business. And my business is to help YOUR business thrive.
