Facing Success
Bookmark and Share
It was 2009 and the country was caught up in a devastating economic downturn. Four savvy professionals with many successful businesses decided to take a risk and venture into an industry new to them. Unfortunately, all did not progress as hoped. Nonetheless, Kristy Murrow, a physician assistant, ex-school teacher and soldier bravely took over management as managing partner of Mariposa Medspa, the enterprise that had only been in operation for 18 months and had never made a profit. Before she could do so, however, she had to convince the owners to give her six months to turn things around instead of closing immediately as they'd planned. Her gamble, and efforts, paid off. In less than four years Mariposa was making millions annually.

FACING SUCCESS by Kristy Murrow with Gaylene Murphy, tells the story of how, through faith and perseverance, they succeeded despite the odds. Chapter by chapter, Murrow reveals the lessons she learned along the way - what she did right and what she'd never do again. In the process she helps readers understand how they can use these same lessons to succeed in their own businesses, no matter what kind of work they are in. But perhaps most important of all, Murrow explains how she finally learned to fully face-and embrace-success. By doing so she helps other aspiring business owners, especially those who are women, to understand how they can do the same.
