Allison’s journey into entrepreneurship was an interesting one. After over 20 years of climbing the corporate ladder and becoming a successful senior manager at a software company, Allison began feeling quite unfulfilled.
Despite her remarkable success in the corporate world, she felt something was missing in her life. Deep inside, Allison knew that she was called to do something different in the world and that senior management was not it.
In her late thirties she began her inner search for what she was truly meant to do with her life (and by the way, yes, she’s often told she looks 10-20 years younger than her true age of 46)
Allison spent over 2 years wrestling with the idea of leaving the security of her 6-figure corporate paycheck. As a single mom with two kids, Allison finally decided that it was time to step into entrepreneurship. For Allison, that decision was both exhilarating and petrifying.
But not so fast…
But success was not instant. While still employed, Allison realized that her true passion and calling was in her natural abilities as a gifted coach. She completed training at Coach University and started her first business as a Life Coach. Although she had some clients, without a mentor and without any business-building knowledge, her Life Coaching business eventually failed.
Allison quickly reflected on this experience and knew that to fulfill her self-employment dreams, she must first discover what it took to create a truly successful business. As a single parent, she knew that failure was simply not an option in her quest to become self-employed full-time.
The search for the success recipe…
Allison’s prevailing belief was “Someone out there HAS the recipe for building a successful business and I intend to find it.” And with that, she made the decision to study 6- and 7-figure solo entrepreneurs.
With relentless determination, she immersed herself in their programs, bought their books, audios, enrolled in their live seminars, listened to hundreds of teleseminars and, most importantly, hired several of them to coach her one-on-one. To the tune of well over $150K, Allison invested her own money in discovering exactly what it took to create a successful business.
Allison admits to being an information hound. She received and applied a colossal amount of teaching and coaching from experts in the areas of online marketing, direct marketing, information marketing, public speaking, copy-writing, information product creation, product launch methods, wealth-building, creating and marketing workshops, success mindset and the list goes on!
Staying with her gift for coaching though, it was during her time of immense discovery that Allison started her second business as an Executive Coach. She used her senior management experience and leadership skills to create and teach powerful workshops to hundreds of managers and also to coach them one-on-one toward leadership success.
Goodbye Corporate Job
This prompted Allison to transition from Executive Coaching into a business where she mentored and coached “corporate captives” on how to make a successful transition to entrepreneurship.
A magnet for solo entrepreneurs
From there, more and more full-time entrepreneurs were drawn to Allison’s authentic, motivational, action-oriented, and results-focused coaching. They began showing up asking for Allison’s advice and mentoring on creating successful businesses.
This led to the launch of GreatSmallBusinessAdvice.com where Allison now spends her time coaching and mentoring small business owners; with a heartfelt passion for bringing the business success recipe to solo entrepreneurs.
Reaching out to thousands
In addition to being featured on radio shows, TV shows, and newspaper articles, Allison is out each month speaking at live events, revealing easy yet lucrative strategies that small business owners an instantly put into action.
And still keeping it simple
Allison is an upbeat and very down-to-earth mom who likes to keep life simple. When she’s not taking her relentless high-energy to speaking gigs, or escaping to warm Caribbean vacations, Allison is usually kicking back at home with her husband and kids. “I’m a total home-body.” Allison says.
She is a devoted Christian who grew up in the tiny Caribbean island of Trinidad and Tobago then (ironically) lived in frigid cold Massachusetts for over 23 years.
Allison then “came to her senses” as she puts it, and decided it was time to retire the snow shovels. Allison, now a military wife, resides in Georgia with her husband and kids. She still has her sights set on moving further south in her attempts to reclaim that “85 degrees year around” she grew up with.
