After spending 10 years as a stay-at-home mom, Corina Burton felt as if she’d lost a part of herself. She rejoined the workforce and created two businesses but they just didn’t seem to fit. She didn’t quit. She kept going. Now she is the founder and owner of multiple successful businesses and she’s sharing how she did it.
At one time she worked for the jewelry company Swarovski. What she learned there was invaluable. She was already great at building relationships, but she quickly learned that strong relationships result in more sales.
As a mother to three young girls, she didn’t have the time after hours to schmooze her clients. Instead, she became a top sales rep by creating strong relationships with even stronger boundaries.
Now that she has multiple businesses under her belt, in the construction industry no less, she knows that her ability to forge relationships is her superpower.
Listen as she shares her story and why even today she’s continuing to make connections and foster relationships. Failure is a stepping stone. As long as you keep moving you’ll find your path.
