Kira La Forgia is an HR Consultant and growth strategist for women-owned businesses who helps women design a business and team that is fun to manage and puts people first (but doesn’t neglect profit!) After time in corporate sales, operations, and small business HR, she made the leap to launching her business, Paradigm Consulting, and scaled so quickly that in her first month after re-launch she hit 5-figures without a single sales page.
We talk about so much in this episode, including Kira’s journey from corporate sales to small business HR to entrepreneurship, and how she managed to grow her consultancy while working full-time in a 9-to-5 job. We also talk about the ins and outs of HR for small businesses, including why HR does NOT have to be scary, and how emotions play into up-levelling your business and stepping into a CEO role.
