    While we recommend watching the interview replay below to learn more, here are some snippets of a few of Lori’s tips: 

    Think Big

    If I were starting my business today what I would have done differently is to think “big” as an entrepreneur. For instance, I’ve found it’s so important to challenge myself with higher goals and truly honor my worth/value, which supports my approach and progression.

    Think Creatively and Network Actively

    For those career professionals considering a career in the field or currently struggling in their businesses right now, I would stress the importance of thinking creatively and networking actively. These are key aspects to success and help us to generate new ideas and learn from the experiences of others.

    Success Takes Persistence and Vision

    It’s important to recognize that becoming a successful career industry professional doesn’t happen overnight. Success takes persistence, hard work, a clear vision, bold confidence, and active engagement to experiment with new ideas and strategies. Trust in the universe that you have got what it takes to make it and be willing to take necessary action, and you will succeed.

    CDI and Lori

    Lori has been a member of CDI since shortly after starting her business in 2013. Some of her favorite resources are:

    • Being part of the Career Industry Accelerator Club (formerly Fly Higher Tribe) for mentoring and business development earlier in her business.
    • Providing her with a place to access lifelong learning when she needed entrepreneurial tools, new perspective and vision, and wanted to expand to serve clients worldwide.
    • Completing courses and earning multiple certifications and awards to increase her expertise, services, and value.

    Laura has actually been a member of CDI since 2007 and shares that she joined at the start of her first industry business. Prior to having her own business she worked in talent acquisition and HR at America Online, and casting (college recruiting) at Walt Disney World. She also has a Master’s degree in Human Resources.
