918: Lorna Gross: Unlock Your Potential: Reimagine and Reinvent Yourself, Over and Over

Today With Lorna Gross:

Today on A Well-Designed Business, I am joined by Lorna Gross, owner of Lorna Gross Interior Design. After finishing two business degrees and leading a very successful life in corporate America, Lorna ended up disappointed and unhappy. Even as successful as she was with winning awards and being up for a promotion. It was time for her to pivot. Lorna and I discuss the art of pivoting, how to recognize when you should, and how to confidently execute it.

LuAnn Nigara and Lorna Gross’s Ah-Ha Moments

“I believe the universe does these things to us to get us to make a different move.” – Lorna Gross

“I am believer that everything is for a season. The key is recognizing when that season is over.” – Lorna Gross 

“You have to risk failure to get to the next thing you should be doing. Sometimes it will take you several times, sometimes it will take one time. As long as you’re not stuck in the season you shouldn’t be in.” – LuAnn Nigara
