Today we have another great episode lined up for you.
My guest and I got connected on LinkedIn earlier this year, and she reached out saying that she had listened to a few episodes. I then looked at her profile and saw some of the amazing things that she has done, and continues to do. So I wanted to have her on as a guest, and I’m excited for the audience to learn more about her.
This guest is a Resilience Expert. She is an Author of “Greater Fortune: The Entrepreneur who Bought the Company That Fired Her”, Keynote Speaker, Business Consultant, & Entrepreneur.
Today’s guest is Dr. Marie Cosgrove.
Marie Cosgrove is the author of “Greater Fortune: Essential Lessons from the Entrepreneur Who Bought the Company That Fired Her”, International Speaker, Resilience Expert, , and Consultant.
Twelve Years ago, Marie Cosgrove was a single mother of four children when she was fired from her job, because she “made too much” in commissions. Instead of becoming bitter, vengeful, and angry, she started her own company developing a different product to identify the risk of stroke, diabetes, and other health markers.
She scaled her business, then went back and bought the company she was fired from. Skeptics and competitors said she would bankrupt the company and herself within six months. Nearly a decade later, Vestibular, Research and Development is the world’s leader in fall prevention, concussions, brain and balance disorder diagnostic and treatment devices for clients including Dartmouth, Yale, Vanderbilt, University of Miami, VA Hospitals, and Air Force Bases nationally, as well as major hospitals and universities worldwide.
