“Only passions, great passions, can elevate the soul to great things.” – Denis Diderot
Allison Andrews gave me a card with this quote one afternoon in 2005 while the Road Show crew from WCNC-TV in Charlotte, NC was preparing for a live television production. She always knew how to get the team excited about the live television event we were about to produce.
Allison is one of the most passionate and creative people I know. And to be honest, I still feel guilty to this day when I had to tell her I was leaving television ultimately to go work for myself. At that time, and still to this day, she is such a tremendous leader and mentor that I never wanted to disappoint her. But what is so funny, she called me when it was time for her to leave broadcast television news to work for herself.
Allison has done more than embrace entrepreneurship and small business ownership, she has embarked on a journey of learning how to tell her own story. We journalists have a hard time with this creative shift in thinking, we are built to tell others’ stories. Now her strong voice as a single mother fighting the world of business, has a created an avenue for her to share her story on the largest stage. Now, many seek her advice, knowledge, and creative expression to find the voices to their own stories.
