Lisa grew up in New Jersey, low-income housing with a single mother and two older siblings. As a young girl, the thought of one day being a successful entrepreneur and motivational leader was completely unimaginable. What Lisa did know, however, was that nothing in life would ever come easy for her and that she would have to work hard to be the best at whatever she did, just as her mother had taught her. Lisa's mother was her inspiration, cleaning houses just to be able to provide for her children, always doing her best to give them opportunities. Lisa has always kept her mother’s struggles close to her heart, attributing it to where she is today and more importantly, exactly where she wants to be.
