I left the company I was working for. I was done with the politics. I had also worked for everybody I admired in the industry. They say you learn more from the good leaders and I was fortunate to learn a lot. At the time I had a high-level banking client with a single event that would cover a year’s salary. My personal life was in transition and I organically went out on a limb because I love what I do. My mentor suggested I buy an existing business and build on a platform that was already there. Maybe I wasn’t ready to start from scratch but I continued on. My big client ended up falling through, but I wasn’t scared. The business had grown and Key Events had begun.
