Q & A with Donielle Owen
What was your worst business experience?
My worst (most embarrassing) business experience was when I underbid myself on a job and the Estimator sent me an email telling me to review my rates. As a courtesy, he sent me other proposals he had received to help me with pricing.
Were you the first in your family to go to college?
Yes. While I was pursuing my Bachelors Degree, I simultaneously enrolled in a certificate program with another university. Once I completed both of those programs, I earned my Masters Degree.
Did you go into business for money?
No. As a Business Development Specialist I went into business to create entrepreneurial opportunities for my family members.
Business book that influenced you the most?
21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership by John Maxwell.
