When failure is not an option, you learn so much about yourself – how much you are capable of accomplishing, how much you’re willing to put yourself out there, how much work you will do to reach your goals.
Allison Maslan knows what that’s like.
At one point, she was a single mom who could not fail. It just wasn’t an option. And she didn’t, building 10 successful companies from the ground up. She is the CEO of Allison Maslan International, a global business mentoring company. She is author of, “Blast off! The Surefire Success Plan to Launch your Dreams into Reality,” and was recently named one of the top women entrepreneurs who inspire by Self Made Magazine.
