Joanna, it’s been too long since we last connected. Thanks so much for taking the time to share your thoughts with our community again. Some readers might have missed our prior conversations, so maybe you can kick things off for us with a quick intro?
I have 25 years of corporate experience which I’m bringing to my new role as CEO of Timeshare Termination Team. Throughout my career, I’ve has worked in partnership with businesses ranging from local startups to large Fortune 500 companies, helping these organizations identify challenges and develop solutions to allow them to achieve their highest potential for growth, maximum profitability and sustainability. With Timeshare Termination Team, I’m dedicated to creating immediate impact and am excited for our organization’s continued growth by helping clients regain freedom from costly and burdensome timeshares. Outside of the office I enjoy cooking, creating recipes, entertaining, living out her faith, hiking, and traveling to some of her favorite destinations with her favorite people.
How did you end up on the business leadership career path?
I ended up in business leadership after working for a large company where I was responsible for the organization’s learning and development department – both in creating it from the ground up to making it a bonafide function within the organization that formalized employee performance, growth, and development.
What do you love most about your work at Timeshare Termination Team?
I love that our team is so passionate about helping our clients do something they can’t do for themselves in a burdensome situation – we bring hope and relief and are helping people’s lives be a little bit better as a result.
Where do you hope to lead Timeshare Termination Team in the next five years?
We have big plans for our organization to continue helping distressed timeshare owners and also to expand our services to assist with other financial needs such as credit repair, financial analysis and coaching, estate planning to name a few. We believe everyone can have the opportunity to achieve financial freedom and we would love to partner with our clients to help make their financial dreams come true.
What has been the most defining moment in your career?
For me, the most defining moment in my career was tackling a completely new profession in the middle of my career and succeeding at it in relatively short order. This reinforced the resilience and resourcefulness I have to pursue anything and find ways to achieve success.
What’s the most important piece of advice you’d give to women in aspiring leadership roles? / What’s the most important piece of advice you’ve received?
The most important advice that I give to women in aspiring leadership roles is to believe in yourself and believe others when they build you up. It’s rare to get compliments so trust them when you do and leverage others’ insights about you because they may see things, we’re blinded to ourselves. The best advice that I’ve received is to make sure you bring value into any situation you’re in and you’ll always be sought after for new opportunities.
What gender-specific challenges, barriers or stereotypes have you overcome in your career?
Living in a world where people judge women instantly by their looks, hair, makeup, clothing, age, etc. It happens to all of us no matter what we look like or how old we are. I’ve been judged and discredited for being too young and for being “put together”. It’s really silly but there still remains somewhat of a double standard against women that we have to work hard to overcome.
It was so great to reconnect. One last question – how can our readers connect with you, learn more or support you?
