At a star-studded awards ceremony held in New York, NY, Laurie Nelson was among many women from around the world who gathered to be recognized for their great achievements in business. Laurie was the recipient of a bronze award for the Stevie Awards for Women in Business under the female executive of the year category. She knew that this was a big honor.
“It was nice to be recognized, and it meant a lot to me to see that women are being more recognized in the business environment,” said Mrs. Nelson in our video interview, which you can view by clicking here.
To make it all possible, Laurie’s main source of motivation were her children. “Everything I do outside of the home is time away from them, so I make sure that I use the time wisely to ensure that I’m trying to make a difference, because it’s not fair to them if I’m not.”
Laurie also provided the following advice to other women: “Just work hard. Find something that you love to do. Ensure that you like the people you work with and that you like your job.”
