Q&A with Jessika Lora - March 27

Hi Jessika! I am curious, in what ways do you feel consulting prepared you to be an entrepreneur? And flip side, what did it not prepare you for? Thanks!

This is a fantastic question! I spent 4 years running eBay Motors between Deloitte and CarForce.io; it’s hard for me to think about what would have been missing if I jumped straight into entrepreneurship. I guess succinctly stated, consulting gave me the toolkit and eBay gave me experience using those tools to build and manage a whole business. My favorite skills from consulting which I depend on every day: - project management skills - crisis handling - problem solving
