What authenticity means to me!

One of my clients recently invited me to an event hosted by Jackie Melendez of Women Networking Worldwide. The panel of speakers were thoroughly engaging and informative. After a follow-up call with my client, I realized she clarified something for me: authenticity. Allow me to explain…

I set out to use my skills and experience to make money, with certain personal parameters in mind. That’s not a bad thing, but it’s only one aspect of what makes entrepreneurship work. Knowing your value creates confidence. Meeting the client at their needs and showing them how to benefit from your value is the yin-yang of success.

Andrea Patrick of Andrea Patrick Consulting and the non-profit The Unique Friends Foundation is not only my client…but my coach…and that’s what I came to understand about authenticity from her!
