Entrepreneur Interview Q & A
1. What is your business/Business Name? What does your business do?
Judy Micale & Associates, we are a Coaching/Consulting Firm.
2. Why did you get into this field? What opportunities did you see?
I love working with people and it was a natural transition from my previous career as a trainer, certified substance abuse counselor, and a certified prevention specialist.
I see this as living my passion of working with others in a coaching and speaker capacity. I also self-published my first book and have begun my second one!
3. What have been your biggest challenges?
My biggest challenge is growing my business slowly. I am so ready to move forward and yet I know in my heart that I am not only growing a business, I am also building my legacy.Taking my time and making sure I am ready for every step is important to me, though I would love to grow and help more people.
4. What has been your greatest reward?
My biggest reward was taking a year off and spending time with my mother. We both had been through so much change in a short period of time: her open heart surgery in 2011, moving her & her significant other in with me, his passing in 2012, funding for my daytime job running out in 2012, and my sister passing in 2013. I decided to just take a year and heal, travel, and just spend quality time with mom — and just be present.

I have learned that there is nothing I would change. Each moment in my life has led to this moment and what a great moment it is!
