René is the President, founder and owner of FocalPath Coaching, a business advisory firm that guides small and medium-sized businesses towards growth and profitability. She brings over 25 years of experience in the business world to FocalPath, and brings her expertise to NAWBO as a long-time member.
In an interview with Work It, Richmond she spoke of her impetus for starting FocalPath:
“I felt like I could help small-business owners by offering them the tools that are typically available to only large corporations.”
René continued, talking about what her experience has taught her:
“Listening is THE best way to connect with clients. I have to completely understand their situation in order to advise them accordingly. My advice to all business owners is never let your guard down. Always be aware of your competition. During an unstable economic environment, you may be able to capitalize on your competitor’s situation, but you don’t want them returning the favor!”
