Could you step away from your business and have it run just as smoothly without you? Tera Marie Pupa experienced this when she was forced to take a break from her business for a year while she battled cancer. Her remarkable team not only kept the business running but actually grew the business. As a result of their hard work and dedication, Tera Marie was able to continue taking her full salary during one of the most trying times of her life. Tera Marie and her team of professional Transaction Coordinators at “VC|TC, Inc“ do the paperwork for realtors, helping to free up their time so they can focus on listing and selling properties rather than chaining themselves to a stack of papers.  Listen to Tera Marie’s wonderful story and discover how she built a business that could run and grow without her presence. Tera Marie also reveals what it was like for her to return to her business after her year-long leave of absence and how she transitioned back into her CEO mindset.

Have you ever felt like you’re in the wrong career? When work feels like a drag and you can’t silence the nagging voice in your head telling you to go in a different direction, it could be time to stop and listen. Transitioning from a corporate background to entrepreneurship isn’t easy, but it is possible and in this special episode of our High Performing Women series, Private Investigator, Anna Stowe, reveals exactly how it’s done. Anna is a fully licensed and insured Private Investigator and Mitigation Specialist with over 20 years of experience. She specializes in background checks, surveillance, criminal/civil, and family law investigations. If that wasn’t enough, Anna is also the elected Sacramento District Governor for the California Association of Licensed Investigators. Let’s just say that if you ever need to uncover the truth about something (or someone), you should give Anna a call.  Together, we piece the story of her rather unusual career path including how she managed to successfully transition from a corporate job to entrepreneurship and how other female entrepreneurs helped her to move her business forward.  So, if you’re ready to discover what life is really like for a female private detective in a male dominated profession, have a listen!

We’ve all got our own reasons for starting a business and for the star of this episode of the High Performing Women series, it was about making a living to support her family. Reena Philpot and her husband Earl started their business, Precision Duplicating Solutions Inc, in their home garage 17 years ago. What started as a way to make a modest living soon escalated into an empire that serves over 500 businesses with annual sales of $1.7 million.  Neither Reena nor her husband could have predicted the fast-growing success of their business. As a husband and wife team, they have a combined experience of over 40+ years in service and sales in the document management industry. They offer great machines such as digital and multifunctional copiers and desktop printers to businesses, schools, and non-profits. They’re both super passionate about their business and Reena’s unique entrepreneurial journey is one that’ll stay with you, inspire and motivate you to continue on your own journey to profit, growth, and success.

Do you know anyone who owns their own business and hasn’t failed in one way or another? Me neither. It’s how you deal with failure that will either make or break your business. It doesn’t get any easier when you aren’t surrounded by people who understand what it’s like to own a business either. In this episode, we speak to serial entrepreneur, the lovely and larger than life, Charisse McCoy who came from humble beginnings to forge her own business empire. Charisse has owned a mailing company, collection agency, consulting firm and residential care facilities and lately, she’s trying her hand as a software developer. She absolutely loves to teach others the empowerment that comes with self-employment and being a hands-on mom. Charisse formed Mom-e-Preneurs with the sole aim of supporting work at home moms of any age and ethnicity. While running a successful consulting business, raising a young family of her own, caring for disenfranchised children and intellectually disabled adults, Charisse has found time to follow her passion for writing and has released her first book: My Work At Home Mom.  So, if you’ve encountered failure and you’re looking for a little inspiration to get you back on the right track, or you’re just interested to hear some insightful stories from one of the most engaging and smart entrepreneurs out there, then make sure you tune in! In this episode, we discuss: The rise of introverts within business How Charisse succeeded in her early career When she realised it was time to start her own business How she turned her first major failure into success The quote that inspires her each day    Join the BizChix Community Connect With Charisse McCoy Website LinkedIn Facebook Email: cascinc2@yahoo.com Books, Tools or Events Mentioned: CEOCHIX Masterminds My Work At Home Mom Listen to Stacking Your Team Work with Us: One Day Mastermind GrowthChix Accelerator Program ProfitChix Mastermind CEOCHIX Mastermind Strategy Session Join the BizChix Community This episode was first published at BizChix.com/392.

Have you ever thought about expanding your business to different locations? It can be a really big investment financially and emotionally, but when you get it right, there’s nothing else quite like it. If you feel like another town or city could benefit from your business, you owe it them and yourself to try, right? I’ve invited Nickie Janes, a CEO who made the bold decision to scale up to take us through her journey on this episode of the BizChix podcast.  Nickie is a licensed aesthetician, Founder and CEO of Smooth boutiques and has over eighteen years of experience specializing in skincare and waxing. She’s built her business from a one room studio to a seven-figure business with thirty employees in three locations in the Norfolk/Newport News area in Virginia. Nickie is great at what she does, cares deeply about the clients her team serve and loves helping women find financial security for themselves. So, if you’re tempted to branch out but don’t quite know how, or you’ve only just started visualizing your multi-store empire then Nickie is someone you can definitely learn from. She’s open about the internal struggles she faced and how she overcame them to really make a success of her boutiques. If you want to find out how she did it, make sure you tune in!  In this episode, we discuss: Nickie’s transition from working for someone to working for herself When she knew it was time to scale to multiple locations How to deal with insecurities and impostor syndrome Where she sees Smooth going in the future   Join the BizChix Community Connect With Nickie Janes Website Facebook Instagram Email: smoothdowntown@gmail.com   Books, Tools or Events Mentioned: BizChix Live E.S.E.T.

This is an option that is rarely talked about in our entrepreneurial world, but it is not unusual. Sometimes an incredible opportunity comes around for an entrepreneur to work for someone else. An opportunity that just cannot be passed up. I am thrilled to have attorney Danielle Liss back on the podcast to share how she chose to move from full time entrepreneur to a Vice President level position with a fast growing startup.   Danielle left a thriving virtual law practice to a join The Faster Way to Fat Loss team as General Counsel and VP of Affiliate Programs. Perhaps even more surprising is Danielle’s realization that this career change has actually improved her mental health and well-being.  Danielle is free-spoken and honest in our discussion and really opens up about entrepreneurship and why she decided to return to full-time employment. But that’s not all we talk about! We also dive into lessons learned throughout her career, why CEO’s need to invest in themselves before they can really invest in their businesses and what it’s like working for an eight-figure company that is experiencing hockey stick growth!   In this episode, we discuss:  How Danielle grew her virtual legal business Why Danielle decided to go back to full-time employment The positive impact that full-time employment has had on Danielle’s mental health and wellbeing Join the BizChix Community Connect With Danielle Liss Website Faster Way to Fat Loss LinkedIn Instagram Facebook Twitter Books, Tools or Events Mentioned: You Are A Badass at Making Money by Jen Sincero Rising Strong by Brene Brown Radical Candor by Kim Scott Other Links Mentioned: Stop, Breathe & Think Buddhify Listen to Stacking Your Team Work with Us: One Day Mastermind GrowthChix Accelerator Program ProfitChix Mastermind CEOCHIX Mastermind Strategy Session Join the BizChix Community This episode was first published at BizChix.com/387.
