After watching her father go through three different layoffs while she was growing up and then experiencing three different layoffs during in her own career in the corporate world, Lisa Orr decided she wanted to become an entrepreneur. No more working for someone else, she wanted control over her own future. Lisa created Rorr Marketing to help others develop their brand identity.
"I just jumped."
In this episode we discuss making the shift from employee to entrepreneur. Lisa shares how she discovered it is most important to focus our most productive time on the things that are most critical and most central to the business and to hire someone else to handle the rest. We chat about the importance of building relationships, keeping community around us, and having a backup plan plus a backup for the backup. Lisa points out that when you own your own business, “Ultimately, the buck stops with you for better or worse.”
The point of this costume may not be clear at first. I call it my nutty professor costume. It represents all those teachers who just don’t seem to be phased by anything. The ones I had were always super smart, easy to talk to, kind to students, and for some reason all seemed to find their clothing in the same discount bin. These professors were my favorites when I was in school.
