For a woman of 24, I had an incredible opportunity learning from this brilliant and fearless man. I was saddened deeply when I heard of his death at the age of 55. I didn’t have enough time with him and felt that I had so much more to learn from him. I can see Rick and his intensity and strategies in my footsteps.
Last year, when working with my business consultant she looked at me and said, “What I see in you is that you are fearlessly brilliant”.
After a year of contemplating what she said, I can look back at my experiences with Rick and recognize that what she sees in me is Rick. He can no longer mentor me in life, but I can see that his spirit is within me and I am proud that it is.
I have developed a reputation for being an "angel", a "miracle worker" and "heaven sent." And with that wind in my sails not only did my firm Cornerstone Bookkeeping quintriple in revenue and employees, but I was able to return to school to earn my accounting degree.
I am a powerfully, smart woman who works well with other powerfully smart women and that is how Concierge Services by Cornerstone was born.
I am a wife, a mother of two, grandmother to one and an active volunteer in my community with the Penn Valley Rodeo, The Board of Directors of The Grass Valley Center for the Arts, and Paint the Town Pink Fundraiser.
