Grabert talks about how Covid-19 forced her to take a long, hard look at life, evaluate the definition of success, and understand her purpose. She realized that she wasn't living life authentically and wasn't doing the things that brought her joy. She evaluated her life goals and decided to move somewhere where she felt more comfortable and could live the life she wanted. Grabert hit the ground running once she landed in California and made a lot of great friends and connections. She was encouraged to step out and start doing something on her own, which led to the formation of her consulting business.
Grabert's client list is vast and includes businesses and companies that have given her more and more work. She works for agencies and does various projects, such as evaluating their advertising and media efforts. Grabert is grateful for the opportunities she's had since stepping out on her own and has no regrets about making the major changes in her life.
