They say that, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade!”
And for Virginia Phillips, a successful human resource professional, when life handed her lemons in the guise of a serious car accident, she not only made lemonades out of it but squeezed and drew out every ounce of its acridity, and then made more than lemonades.
As someone who will not simply sit on the couch and wait for life to pass her by, Virginia was able to turn the lemons or adversity of having to never work again by making her own lemonade and put up her own coaching business, The Academy of Entrepreneurial Excellence, LLC.
Now, Virginia Phillips is regarded as a leading business coach and in-demand speaker, guiding start-up service-based entrepreneurs to increase their profitable opportunities and success by leading, communicating efficiently, and developing business plans and systems.
This is the very reason why The National Association of Professional Women honored Virginia as an inductee to its VIP Woman of the Year Circle for 2017- 2018 and was recognized with the prestigious distinction of leadership in entrepreneurship.
The National Association of Professional Women (NAPW) is the leading networking organization exclusively for professional women, boasting more than 850,000 members, a thriving e-Chapter, and over 200 operating Local Chapter.
However, Virginia didn’t stop with just building her own coaching business. She is likewise the author of the upcoming book, Yes, You Can! Your Roadmap to Dream, Create and Profit. Virginia is also launching her own podcast, Yes, You Can! With Virginia Phillips very soon!
Indeed, Virginia exemplifies a woman who was handed down with life’s obstacles, yet transcended those challenges and now enjoys the sweet success of her sheer will and perseverance.
According to Virginia, “Success is part of my story. I embrace it. I endured 1,278 days of intense rehabilitation after a teenager texting driving caused a car accident that should have killed me. Potentially crushing news for anyone but I have a history of excelling with every new challenge. This only meant a new beginning for me. Today I am an author, an inspirational speaker, and an entrepreneurial coach. I am also a survivor.”
