We had the good fortune of connecting with Kerri Roberson and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Kerri, other than deciding to work for yourself, what else do you think played a pivotal role in your story?
To take absolute ownership! I quickly understood I was the only one responsible for my outcome. I cannot control the decisions others make, which meant I had to always look for the next client/customer to help and never settle with where I was!
What should our readers know about your business?
I offer a different style of consulting. I help the individual who knows they were created for more, step into it! There are so many people that are where I once was, just existing and trying to pay the bills. I love to sit down with someone and find out what they love to do in life, what dreams they had as a child that got shoved so deep down they have forgotten them. What is the one thing they would do out of love, not for money, once we find out some of these answers I help develop a plan. I have helped people for the past 21 years earn additional income, eliminate debt and find time freedom and pursue their passion! I can relate, I once was the person who had forgotten the dreams. When I began this journey myself I remembered all the things I wanted as a kid; to see the world, to be a speaker (crazy dream for a kid, but from a very young age I spoke to thousands) to swim with dolphins, etc. As a kid we are not afraid of the dreams in our heart, as adults we have bought into the go to school, get good grades, get a job and barely get by and forget all those silly things. Well I am here to tell you there is more to life than that! I now have traveled the world and stepped on all 8 continents (yes there are 8!) I have stood on stages and spoke to thousands countless times, I have swam with dolphins all over the world. I have achieved the dreams in my heart and I am discovering daily there are still more to check off! I know you have heard nothing worth having comes easy! Life is hard, business is hard and currently changing daily. So you have to understand no matter how hard something is, you must keep moving forward. I understood early in life that being broke was hard, so whatever it took to be successful would be worth it. I made a decision to never quit, not even for 10 seconds- that has served me very well! Truth is there are times when people disappoint you or hurt you in business, do not quit! You will disappoint yourself in business, do not quit! You are in complete control of your life and actions, remember that at all times! I took complete ownership of my business and built a successful life, now I enjoy helping others do the same! I have been told I am truly the eternal optimist, I wrote a book Your Words Create Your World, because I believe with my whole heart they do! I am genuinely excited about helping you take control of your life!!
Any great local spots you’d like to shoutout?
We love the outdoors, so if I wanted to show someone the places I love. We would head out to an Astros game and go for the amazing Lobster Roll at The Blue Fish. Or we would take them fishing in Galveston and enjoy lunch at The Spot and/or dinner at Gaido’s! For an evening dinner we enjoy The Woodlands waterway or City Centre. There are so many wonderful areas to enjoy in the Greater Houston area, sadly many of our favorites are closed during this time.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would have to say my greatest support and encouragement comes from my husband Rick and my two children Dustin & Hannah. I never have to doubt my value to the world, these three are constant encouragers. Our world was turned upside down after a 20 year business was taken away and they all believed I would rise again. The last year for some would have been grueling, however for me it has been full of moments of inspiration and learning a lot of new things in the business world! I truly believe the best is yet to come and I know I have the support for it!
