We had the good fortune of connecting with Valerie Amador and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Valerie, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
I’m glad of the opportunity that was presented to me to be able to start a senior care business. Helping people has been and will always be rewarding to me. There are risks in many things in life. I always tell my friends when they feel fear or starting their own business if you don’t do it someone else will.. You have to take opportunities as they come to you and if you don’t act on those opportunities they will move on to someone that sees the vision. I am glad I saw that vision and after 15yrs we continue to expand and evolve as team and many new things coming our way still.
