This Week's Episode: Balancing Process with Progressive Edge

When the idea of entrepreneurism was a hot alternative back in the 80’s, corporations had a romance with the idea but a challenge with the reality. The clash of cultures left an uncrossed chasm between top-down order and quirky genius, the vastness of vision and the road most travelled. Whether the thirst for self-employment is nipping at your heels, you’re an insatiable veteran of your own authority, or whether you work within a corporate system in which shifting your presence and power is timely, the entrepreneurial spirit is alive in us all. This Series addresses the inspiring journey of one self-made women from humble beginnings, who never looked back or took no for an answer.

Excerpt From Episode

I asked Mitzie if she could give some direction to budding entrepreneurs through sharing the process she went through to develop a client service that was unique niche in the marketplace. Mitzie began by saying that at the time she had to build a prototype as there were no other similar businesses, no research or stats to pull from. Her forte became the foundations of her process for 35 years – personalized interaction and intimate service based on her client’s needs. In the same way that successful entrepreneurs provide innovative solutions to market opportunities, there is a process in developing a special competency that differentiates you from everyone else.
