Nancy Fredericks’, early business career began with managing Operations and Human Resources functions in large law and accounting firms in Los Angeles before launching her consulting company. Even within these large, conservative organizations, Nancy was known as an entrepreneurial leader. She initiated programs that positively impacted the bottom line of the organization through improved processes and skill sets—even if there was no “official” budget to support them. She learned early on that success attracts the funding for more success and that one person can make a difference.
Nancy’s first foray into the world of entrepreneurship actually occurred when she was in third grade. She began weaving potholders at night, and selling them to the neighbors the following afternoon. Soon, she organized the first mass-production line in her neighborhood when she convinced three friends to join her little business. They wove the potholders, which she then sold throughout the neighborhood. Here began her first lessons in managing, marketing, and high finance.
In 1987, Nancy accepted her first consulting assignment. It wasn’t too many years later that she launched Nancy Fredericks International, a corporate consulting company specializing in improving business results by shifting people and processes. Over the years, Nancy Fredericks International was expanded to include customized training programs, executive corporate planning retreats, and specialized need assessments to uncover what is and is not working within an organization.
