Shauna Madsen – Creative Director of all things Business

For me, self employment is a lifestyle; it is not a job, nor is it a career. A lot of cool things have happened in 30 years of steering my own ship. I have started seven businesses since 1988.  For each of those, I began with a blank canvas, researched every area, identified a need, developed processes, and procedures, set systems in place, and created products and services to sell.  My mentor calls me a developer & initiator. My coach calls me "Jill of all trades and a master of many".  I love my mentor and my coach.

I am more interested in creating for others than I am in building my own empire, I will leave that for another lifetime.  For this round, I wish to create, contribute, create, teach, create and facilitate.
