Welcome back to TechUnited Take 5, where you’ll meet new members of the community in a fun and personalized way!
Meet Michelle Conway, a professional business coach and ex-Prudential exec, who’s focused on helping small to medium size business owners in financial services, technology and project management achieve their goals.
Tell us more about your company or organization! For those getting to know you for the first time, share what you absolutely want them to know in 2-3 sentences.
There are three primary areas of focus for my FocalPoint Business: Business Coaching, Strategic Planning, and Financial Assessments. I take strong emphasis on the overall operation of your organization and how effectively it’s working, create your strategic plan, motivating you to get things done and inspiring participation from your entire team, and provide you with insight on how to evaluate your business, assess risks, and much more.
What are the top reasons you joined TechUnited? How can you help other members, and how can other members help you?
I joined TechUnited because I am looking to form meaningful relationships that are mutually beneficial and was inspired by the organization and all of the different types of technology that is being developed and implemented in New Jersey.
Members of TechUnited can help me by sharing business owner contacts that they know who are working way too many hours, growing faster than they can keep up, want to grow but can’t find the time or who can’t seem to find the right people to position themselves for the future. While I can offer an external perspective, an outreach of over 250 coaches in my network who can be tapped to help, world class content and a money back guarantee. It all starts with a conversation and we can see where that takes us!
What motivated you to start your company or organization and how do you differentiate yourself from the competition?
I was always so impressed with brave people I have met over the years who started their own business and pitched and implemented new ideas during my time in Corporate America. What differentiates me is loyalty, honesty and tenaciousness to making a positive impact and creating value.
What new technology are you excited about? And how do you stay innovative in your role?
I enjoy technology and how it changes the way we live, both personally and professionally. Automation excites me. Simple and sleek interfaces that are intuitive and seamless. Life is too short to spend on the mundane. I stay innovative by being a continuous learner.
What is that one piece of advice you would share with other entrepreneurship enthusiasts in the community?
Work on your business, not in your business! Many business owners spend way too much time on their daily tasks or managing performance and not enough time looking ahead to the future. Take the time to invest in your company.
What’s your go-to conversation starter or #1 fun fact about your company or career?
If you could paint a picture of success, what would it show?
