Cloris started out wanting to be an engineer. She never saw herself as owning her own business, but as she went through school, she became increasingly interested in marketing. She got her MBA and went into the corporate world. It didn’t take long for her to get tired with the corporate world. She had a desire to do something bigger, to be able to make the most out of her gifts. So, she left corporate life and started a business helping college and high school students transition to their next levels.
She quickly realized how much she loved helping people one on one. She grew the business and was very successful. Then she had a huge setback with the loss of her marriage. At that time she wrote a book and met Wayne Dyer who personally mentored her. She learned how to connect with influencers and entrepreneurs and began using her marketing skills to help them.

Best advice for an entrepreneur starting out today?
Take things one step at a time
Create a vision of what you want to create
Once you have a vision, create a mission and the mission includes: Who you help, what you will do to help them, and the results you want to them to achieve.
The results you want them to have will guide you to the product and services you will offer.
Lastly, but more importantly choose to believe in yourself!
Keep looking until you find that driver. That burning desire that allows you to keep going no matter what and you’ll find it because we all have one in us.
