The Decision Makers Series is one of our staff’s favorite because decision making is a topic that so many of us have studied deeply.

Tamara Ramos | Interior Designer & Founder

I think after deciding we wanted to venture off on our own, we knew we had to establish a vision for who we wanted to be for our clients, ourselves, & our families. And sometimes that means staying true to what your beliefs are. We made a promise that we would not take on any projects that weren’t aligned with our values and who we are as individuals & creatives. This allowed us to focus on the projects with people we truly love working with & who respect our work. Even when we were just starting & had next to 0 clients, we would still be selective.

Steve Krebs | Serial Entrepreneur, Business Owner, Coach & Consultant

By far the most important decision I made was seeking out Mentors and Coaches who had already created the life, business and results that I desired. It allowed me to avoid many of the pitfalls that cause new businesses to fail. Having a mentor is crucial in the growth process. In each “season” of my companies I found a coach/consultant/mentor in the area that needed the most attention. It has allowed me to accelerate growth, results and profitability. I have been fortunate to work with some of the best on planet earth, and now I take on the mentorship role for thousands of Business owners world wide. Read more>>

Chanya Middleton | Social media motivator and influencer

I decided to work for myself after working for and under a few geniuses. I’ve been working since the age of 15 and most of my bosses loved teaching me how to be a boss. I applied that when I was discovered as a model. I took no shit and I always over delivered. I still do. I’m proud to say that I’m still an entrepreneur because I decided to put God first some years ago. I actually tried doing this on my own at the beginning. Once I had children I realized that I couldn’t do this on my own, nor was operating with others going to work unless I incorporate God. I have to put him first. God reassures me now and that’s the best feeling. No matter the accomplishments either great or small I’m thankful. I’m even thankful for this interview. Read more>>
