Hard work speaks for itself.  You’ve got to do the work to reap the rewards.  Life gives us no free passes, and we all benefit from rolling up our sleeves and keeping our noses to the grindstone.

I believe that it’s important to take calculated risks at different points in the life of your business and your career if you are going to be truly successful, you need to be bold and aim higher.

 

My father taught me to have a fierce work ethic, a willingness to speak truth to power, and a sincere desire to serve others and do good.

To be successful, Evette believes in focusing on three main principles: Work hard. Do good. Aim higher. These have become her playbook and guide for her life.

Leadership

Keeping an eye on steady growth, Evette never settles for the status quo. She is always looking ahead and around the corner. 

 

Evette believes that hard work speaks for itself.  You’ve got to do the work to reap the rewards.  Life gives us no free passes, and we all benefit from rolling up our sleeves and keeping our noses to the grindstone. 

 

Aiming higher is critical because standards matter, as does the ability to challenge the status quo and expect more from yourself and others.

Community Service

As a product of the American dream and a servant leader at heart, Evette is committed to paying it forward. She believes in “The Golden Rule,” this ongoing cycle of giving and receiving which creates a ripple effect. Like pebbles in a pond, our actions affect our lives and the lives of others.

 

Through our own generosity and being brave enough to accept the help of others, we are empowered to make a difference.  Evette is driven by her desire to do good and provide a voice for others.
