In the interview, the Elon alumna discusses starting a business, leadership, burnout and more.
Elon alumna Pam Jordan’s recent interview about leaving the corporate world to start her own business is featured on Entrepreneur.com.
The April 6, 2020, article is part of a “Member Showcase” series with The Oracles, a network of entrepreneurs and CEOs.
In “How a sinking ship and an airplane inspired Pam Jordan to leave the corporate world and start her own business,” Jordan shares what led her to found Pivot Business Group, a bookkeeping and financial services firm, in 2016.
“One day, I met with an employer who showed me his five-year plan, which included growing his company enough to buy a plane,” Jordan told The Oracles. “I walked out of his office, determined to create my own company so I could build a legacy for my family.”
When asked what she would like to be known for, she explained she wants to help bring “the freedom of both time and money to thousands of business owners.”
Jordan also answered questions on defining great leadership, identifying a good business partner and preventing burnout.
She graduated from Elon in 2003 with a bachelor’s degree in human services and in 2009 with the MBA.
