Margy Judd, President of Executive Arrangements
"Start every day with a plan. Every morning, my team discusses what they are working on and how we can support each other."
Margy Judd purchased Executive Arrangements from its previous owner after working for the company for 12 years. Up until that time, she did not have the ambition to become a small business owner. The transition from performing daily tasks to managing people was a challenge.
When she applied for 10,000 Small Businesses in 2013, the local economy was making its way out of a recession. The company had lost 50 percent of their business during the recession, which left Judd wearing several hats. Her 10KSB classmates helped her learn how to step back and analyze her business from a different vantage point.
After completing the program, she joined Entrepreneurs’ Organization Accelerator to continue the accountability and learning process alongside other business owners.
Judd now starts every day with a plan. Her team reviews their schedules on a daily basis and discusses how they can support one another. She has gained better delegation skills and learned how to create and be accountable to operations and processes.
Executive Arrangements closely monitors their marketing impact and sales using a dashboard implemented as a result of Judd’s 10KSB training. The business grew 40 percent last year, and another 40 percent growth is projected this year.
