In late March, I had the pleasure or working with Borsa Bellaowner Melissa Wisen, who was a finalist for an Entrepreneur of the Year award. Melissa's company makes gorgeous handbags, purses and carry-alls and had been nominated for the coveted award handed out during the annual Greater Wenatchee Area Technology Alliance Innovation luncheon.
Melissa contacted me and asked if I would coach her through an interview that would be used by the judges to select the winner. For Melissa, the pressure was on.
After working through a strategy for the video interview and narrowing down some talking points, I'm pleased to say that Melissa's mantle now holds that award. It's well deserved, and the Borsa Bella story is quite impressive. Here are Melissa's words after working with me and taking home the trophy:
"Jennifer helped me create a strategy, direction, and talking points for a recent interview that would be used to determine the winner of a regional award. I really appreciated Jennifer's ideas, wording, insight, and coaching. It helped me gather my ideas, and gave me the added confidence I needed."
