Welcome to Her Success Story.

Women inspire me every single day. Their tenacity, wit, enthusiasm, power and grace have provided the world with amazing businesses that have transformed industries. Her Success Story is a podcast that allows these impactful and fascinating women to share their success journey with the world. Their triumphs, along with their failures. Their lessons, along with their leadership. And their determination to follow their dreams. Listen in each week as we talk to women in fashion, coaching, corporate, legal and so much more.

Our theme song is Irresistible Me by Cindy Rainne.

In this episode, Mary and I chat about:

  • The one promise her husband made to her when they got married
  • Why she left a lucrative sales job and joined forces with her husband in his existing business
  • The consultant they hired 25 years ago and why HE fired THEM in less than 24 hours
  • Why Mary and her husband went to every bookstore they could find
  • What amazing program came out of a time of desperation
  • What happened when focusing on humanity around their team members became priority
  • How her husband started his business at 19 and why it was never his dream
  • Why their retention is 300% better than the industry average
  • Why going toward the obstacle is the answer and the question you have to revisit quarterly
