EO Member Spotlight: Anna Walz
Joined EO in March 2011
What inspired you to join EO?
“Until I participated in an executive program for female entrepreneurs, I didn’t realize how important it is to be around peers who understand what it means to have all your assets tied into your personal life. I made some critical friendships, and one friend recommended I join EO.”
What do you hope to get out of your EO membership?
“I hope to meet people who understand what it feels like to wake up every morning knowing that their life and business are integrally connected. I hope to meet like-minded people who can share their personal and professional experiences, and who won’t judge me when I bring a difficult situation to the table.”
How did you get started with your business?
“Years ago, I worked at a small medical communications agency and learned everything I possibly could about the business. I started out as an assistant and ended my tenure as vice president. When the time came to move on, I decided to give it a go on my own.”
What’s the best part about being an entrepreneur? The hardest?
“Knowing that you are in control of your destiny! The hardest? Battling self-doubt when you are faced with making critical decisions.”
What’s the next big step for your business?
“I’m ready to work extremely hard for the next few years and position Medisys Health Communications for sale. When I was 10 years old, my goal was to retire at age 40. My new goal is 49, and I’m not changing that!”
