THE FULL STORY
It all started with some sheep…
My corporate colleagues are usually surprised to learn that I grew up on a farm. We had sheep, chickens and a huge garden – and all the chores that come with it, of which there are a LOT! I learned to work hard and think smart. It was fun! Yes, we tried to ride the sheep (you fall off every time). Yes, I was in 4H – but not for long. It’s a great program with lots of opportunity but after spending a season raising and training my pet sheep…I had to sell it for slaughter??? Ribbon or not, that only happened once.
You know how some kids build a lemonade stand? When I was 10, my little sis and I ran a (successful) pumpkin stand! The huge garden turned into a produce farm and I had the unique opportunity to be part of growing our family business. That entrepreneurial spirit has been part of me ever since.
Off to the big city…
After working my way through college and getting married, I left the farm for the shiny corporate world in Seattle. For all of the details, feel free to check out my LinkedIn profile. Here’s the quick recap: I loved my job(s). After a few successful years in banking, I joined the Microsoft Financing program to manage the Southwest region. After developing it into a successful territory, I scoped and built out our multi-million dollar national partner program. The program changed providers and I transitioned to PNC Bank, where I continued managing our partners in the Microsoft Financing program, and was also asked to help build new programs with other large tech corporations. Then I got the opportunity of a lifetime and formally joined Microsoft with responsibilities for business development (of the financing program) throughout our North America teams and partners.
I never would’ve dreamed I’d see this kind of success and I know I’m blessed. But it isn’t just luck: I work really hard, and care about those I work with and our mutual success. And I’ve learned that I am very good at identifying opportunities, making plans to capture the opportunity and then following through to execution.
Our precious daughter was born in Seattle, prompting our return to Idaho to be closer to family – where our sweet boy joined us after a few years. My success in Seattle allowed me to continue in my same role but from home, in Idaho. Having kids has made me become very efficient with my time. Even with an incredible job, I have better things to do than work all day! (I hope to share these strategies with you because I firmly believe we are not on this planet to work all the time.)
An opportunity to help
In Idaho, I began noticing a need in the local community. Friends, family and even businesses I frequented were struggling. They were great at what they do but they weren’t making the money they wanted to and they were working ALL the time. Some didn’t see the opportunity in front of them, others didn’t know how to take advantage of it, and others simply didn’t follow through with the right systems to execute.
I can’t sit on the sidelines when I know I can help – and with that, I started BizFarmer. (You can read the long version of why I quit my dream job right here).
Let me share what I’ve learned with you! I really want to help you succeed beyond your wildest dreams. Click here to join the BizFarmer VIP community and get tips and strategies to grow your business.
I look forward to connecting with you! ~ Angela
ON A PERSONAL NOTE
- My two precious kids and their handsome, hilarious daddy are my life. They come first, always.
- I’m a recovering perfectionist, but striving for excellence is still a must.
- I’m super-sick of “busy.” What are we killing ourselves for anyway?
- I love to run. It clears my head and inspires me. And lets me eat more chocolate.
- Jeans and sweatshirts are my favorite.
- When it’s time to unwind, I need a book. David Baldacci, John Grisham and Tom Clancy have written most of my favorites. Karen Kingsbury is my go-to for mushy and inspirational vegging.
And if that’s not enough…and you’re curious as to what really matters to me in my business…come on over and check out my manifesto!
