How did you start working remotely? Was it something you sought out or stumbled into?

I love being with people, connecting, making new friends. Every friend I have was a stranger until the first hello. I have owned my own business’ and do what I love and love what I do. People call it a lifestyle. I simply call it living.

What do you do for work and for fun?

What do I do for work? As little as possible. I don’t find work to be a “four letter word” I love what I do. My job? I bring new eyes to business issues- to assist women entrepreneurs and small business owners move to, and maintain a growth cycle with their business. I have provided that same service to corporations, Johnson and Johnson, Barnes & Noble, Cannon, and more.. but now.. I focus on assisting women and small business become more… It is not work… It’s a passion.

What cities do you call “home” and why do you want to be a Workfrom ambassador?

Princeton, NJ, New York, NY, Philadelphia, PA., London, U.K. Why? I have lived all over the world and travel extensively. I love building relationships, and I love coffee. :)

How did you find out about Workfrom and why do you want to bring it to your area?

I love the idea of watching something grow. WorkFrom appears to be something that has value and peeks my interest. How did I find Workfrom? simply “going down the rabbit hole” through this wonderful thing we call the internet.

Any tips you’d like to share for others wanting to or already working remotely?

If you are not self motivated and have the abilty to hold yourself accountable to creating work product and not wondering off into spending your day on Social media (unless its part of your business, which it is for me ) Think about learning to develop the skill of getting organized, focused and directed.

Any tips for those wanting to visit and work from your area?

Tips for where I work. Princeton NJ. Its University wrapped around a community. Its about learning. Its an “Ivy League” mentality. Slackers.. not so much. New York City? what can I say? It’s the place to grow and flourish in or within business. London- If you have never been, you are missing out. Make travel a priority over material things. Experiences live within you, possessions tend to just take up space.

What do you like most about Workfrom, and what would you like to see above all else come from us in the next year?

Too soon for me to even comment. I will certainly spend time with the app and desktop version and see what unfolds…
