RIPPLES OF CHANGE: THE CASE FOR HUMANITY IN YOUR BUSINESS MODEL

Episode Description

Sherry Deutschmann used to feel inferior for only having a high school education, but this seven-figure earner now realizes the value of something more important than credentials — empathy.
In this episode of Breakthrough, host Sara Roach Lewis chats with Sherry about her journey, from not being able to afford electricity to becoming a multi-millionaire. Using only filing cabinets she bought from Goodwill, Sherry founded LetterLogic, a company she grew to 40 million dollars in annual revenues and over 50 staff before selling in 2016.
Recognized as a White House Champion of Change by President Obama, Sherry now runs BrainTrust, which helps women reach that first pivotal milestone: the first million-dollar mark. A longtime advocate for employee rights and fair living wages, Sherry truly believes that if you put your staff first, you will be rewarded.
Tune in to hear the story of this remarkable ambitious woman and get ready to start telling your clients they don’t actually come first!
