Lisa Hufford became a consultant in 2006 after 14 years of corporate work. She left her job as a sales director at Microsoft to be “actively present” for her two sons, she wrote in the March 2011 issue of EO Magazine. Starting her own company helped her balance being a successful businesswoman and spending time with her kids, she said. With Simplicity Consulting, Hufford works to help businesses to develop personalized marketing strategies.
