I started my professional journey like the children of so many entrepreneurs — working in the family business. The Country Emporium was an antique store that my folks built literally right inside of our house. Work-life balance issues aside, it was an amazing opportunity to learn first hand the value of hard work and the importance of building relationships. Our customers were our neighbors, but they quickly became part of our family as well.
Today, I’m proud to lead an organization that also exemplifies these values. Audigy helps hundreds of entrepreneurs realize their full potential through bolstering their belief in what’s possible and supporting them every step of the way in reaching their goals. It’s hard work, but we do it while providing the same attention to detail and focus on relationships that my mom and dad had working in the Country Emporium. We too consider these entrepreneurs part of our family.
I love talking to people and hearing their stories. My passion is helping them realize their potential. I’m on LinkedIn to connect with and learn from as many of you as I can. I’m also on Twitter for those who may be interested in following me there (@masonbwalker)
