We had the good fortune of connecting with Julie Davis and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Julie, what do you attribute your success to?
The most important factor behind my success and brand is consistence, persistence and authenticity.. Ever since I launched my company in 2015, I have not waivered from the lane of productivity, what I stand for, and what I help business owners with. I have shown up at networking groups, on line, and through my marketing consistently every single month and week. As well, there is never a question as to who I am and what you are going to get when you engage with me.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I launched JMD Productivity Training 5 years ago, and it’s been quite a wild ride! The biggest lesson I’ve learned as an entrepreneur is patience. This journey takes time. We need time to build our brand, to be seen, to be known, liked, and trusted. And it takes time to figure out if something is going to work or not and then more time when you tweak it to see if you tweaked the right things! What sets me apart from others in the field of productivity is that I’m not focused on time management; rather, I am focused on habits–the habit of proactivity and habits around time and where it’s spent (which is NOT time management!). What makes me a true expert? I play as much as I work! If you follow me, you’ll see how much I am out there loving life along with loving my business! I wear it!
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Frist, we would go to the Olympic/Paralympic Museum because we both are sports fanatics! It’s an incredible hands on experience. We’d eat at Shuga’s, a local restaurant with an eclectic selection of food–Spicy Brazilian Shrimp Soup is my fave! Most of where we would eat is at local places and coffee shops around my neighborhood in Colorado Springs. We would also take a walk around Garden of the Gods and hike up a section of Pikes Peak and some other scenic hikes around the area. Both of us love to be outside and to exercise–what better way to get some calories burned off than to go hiking and spend a half day to a day outside? Of course, we would also have to head to Breckenridge, CO, where we both grew up , for a couple of days. If it’s winter, we’d be skiing, no question. I would also make sure she met the people who I network with as they are my true tribe that feed my business mind and business. AND, we’d go to the golf club to meet my social group–who I golf, play tennis, and generally hang out with all summer long!
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My business would not be possible, nor even the idea that this business could exist without eWomen Network.
