Hi, I’m Terra, Business Strategist + Creator of The Business Map Method™.
Fasten your seat belts, folks.
My motto in life is: Fly or Die.
I love helping women entrepreneurs stop “winging it” and board the fast track to success.
My clients are able to soar to new heights—making their high-flying business dreams a reality, while I help them navigate any turbulence along the way.
You might be surprised to learn after reading all of my airline puns that I didn’t actually take a flight until I was 16 years old. Seriously.
I grew up in a small town in Central Illinois, and never thought I’d leave. Maybe you can relate. My dad works for an airline, and I grew up next to an airport—listening to whir of planes above my home every single day. I even communicated with my dad in airport codes.
And yet, even with all of that flight inspiration, I still didn’t see myself soaring to epic heights.
At least, not until I got on that first flight.
It was a warm summer day. My uncle took me up in his small plane, and we only flew around our small town. I was familiar with every place we passed, but - that day - I saw things from a new perspective.
Instead of looking up, I was finally staring down. I got to be on top of the world.
And I realized that day that THIS was my passion. To create a community of amazing women… and that we could all catapult to the top, together. #FlyOrDie
So that’s what I did.
Today, I’m not just the Pilot—leading women toward the business of their dreams—I’m the whole darn crew (there’s my Gemini peeking out again!)
I’ve worked with fortune 500 companies as a consultant and now proud to have worked with hundreds of women entrepreneurs (and counting) to help them fast-track their own five-year plans in less than one year.
When working with me, you can expect expert navigation… and you can expect that if you’re a little uncomfortable, I’ll grab you a blanket and a bag of pretzels, too.
Here are 9 other things you can expect when taking flight with me:
I’m completely addicted to Chanel® brooches. I line-up my collection at home and stare at them any time I have a break.
I hunt new ones down like a rabid fan at a Beyonce concert.
I have this recurring fantasy that I’ll have a daughter-in-law one day (I have all boys, by the way) who will inherit my collection and love it just as much as I do. *Sigh*
If I don’t travel somewhere at least once a month, I’ll die.
That sounds very dramatic, but what is life without a bit of drama?
I can’t stop going to Starbucks™.
It’s so bad, that my local Starbucks has a photo of my dog on the wall.
I go through these virtuous bursts of trying to give it up, but I think I’m just going to fully embrace my Starbucks shame.
I was never a dog person until I rescued my sweet Aussie, Skylar.
Now I’m obsessed with her, and love her more than anything (sorry, husband.)
Speaking of husband (who I do love the most - I swear!) - he is the secret to my life balance.
Oh… he's 6'4" and I'm 5'1” (okay..with heels on.)
I have a mom who owns and operates a busy barber shop and a dad who (who now works for an airline) was a lead singer of a rock band in the 70's and 80's.
That means I have stories for days.
If you meet me in real life, I will constantly be applying lipstick, or lip gloss, or chapstick.
Dry lips are my nightmare.
I’m a closet soap opera freak. I shamelessly engage in online fan forums to discuss the latest episode, and secretly want to go to a General Hospital fan convention, but I haven’t worked up the guts. Yet.
My TV obsession also extends to other guilty pleasure shows, like Real Housewives, The Bachelor, and Hallmark Movies.
I'm all about a good shortcut.
You want to know the fastest way to get anywhere?
I'm your gal.
