Today she is the successful owner of Red Hawk Strategic Solutions. But when Elizabeth was just beginning, it was a job in retail sales at age 16 that started her career. She worked her way through college at Old Dominion University, at the same time becoming one of the top commissioned salespeople at the retail organization.
This developed into a corporate career that resulted in a love for growing new programs and rolling out needed items into marketplaces. Once her kids were in college, Elizabeth continued that love for “thinking bigger” and “pushing the bruise” as a business owner, working with other entrepreneurs and sales managers to get them to growth mode. Her passion to help others grow clients by mapping out a plan is what led her to start the Red Hawk Strategic Solutions in December 2015.
Success didn’t come quickly. It took phone calls, coffees, lunches, networking, social media blitzes, speaking engagements, founding a women’s forum, listening to the community, offering to jump in when there was a need, and tapping into decades of contacts and vendors, to get where she is today: leading a successful business that provides Strategic Growth Consulting and training for organizations who need to breathe life into their business plan and salespeople.
