Award-Winning Entrepreneur and 2 time Best-Selling Author, Dr. Minette Riordan successfully built a multi-media publishing company, turning a small quarterly newspaper into a monthly magazine with a circulation of 50,000 copies distributed through over 300 locations around the Dallas Ft. Worth Metroplex. She also hosted wildly successful family expos with hundreds of vendors and thousands of attendees.
When she first started her business, Minette knew nothing about marketing and sales. In fact, the first time she stood up at a local networking event, she was so nervous her knees were shaking and her face turned bright red. She was terrified to pick up the phone and make a sales call. She knew if couldn’t master sales, she wouldn’t have a business. What Minette finally discovered was that building relationships, being curious, and listening to people are the keys to success.
Minette went on to gross hundreds of thousands of dollars in that business and discovered that what she loved most was coaching other small business owners on how to find the profit in their business.
She also discovered that the missing link to success for many entrepreneurs is creativity. By bring more creative play into our business and our work, we will find deeper satisfaction, profound connections with our clients and an increase in our bottom line.
After 11 years in the publishing industry, Minette sold that company and relocated her family to beautiful Santa Barbara, CA. She and her husband now run a thriving coaching and training business from their home near the beach. When she’s not working, she loves spending time with her family, taking long walks on the beach, making art or enjoying a glass of red wine.
