she has the experience, the personality and the guts. ou talk to HR today and find out why you weren’t paid starting Dec. 31? Also, please ... make sure that you will be receiving an extra $300 starting next pay period? Lastly, can you find out if you can start contribution to 401k next pay period and how much is the max? Oh, and please switch accounts for direct deposit and find out why this was a check instead?

I have had the pleasure of watching Erica launch, build and grow her business from the ground up, taking it from an idea to an incredibly su ... ccessful platform. In the crowded and competitive media market, Erica was able to identify a niche and create a voice that spoke to an untapped market. Her strong brand identity and understanding of her market has her now poised for growth. Erica values relationships and takes time to build up those around her, believing that a rising tide raises all ships. Erica is driven, determined, and unrelenting in the pursuit of her goals. Chicago is lucky to have her as part of our entrepreneur community!
