Welcome to the Evolvepreneur (After Hours) Show

I am your Special Host Richard Wray

Join me today where we dig deep with our guests and get you the best concepts and strategies to fast-track your business.

My very special guest today is Andora Hinton ...

Andora Hinton founded Willow North Growth Partners to help companies improve communication and collaboration. She discussed her journey from a career in sales to entrepreneurship and how changing the company name was an important step. Willow North works with clients of all sizes from various industries. Andora explained their process of immersing themselves in a client's business to fully understand their needs. While they provide structured programs, everything is customized to the client's language and scenarios. The best outcomes come from clients that are fully committed to the changes over a 6-9 month engagement. An example client saw ongoing success implementing active communication techniques learned in a training years ago.

Key Moments:

  • Andora Hinton founded Willow North Growth Partners to help professionals improve communication and collaboration skills through leadership development and sales training.
  • She discovered her passion for entrepreneurship and training after being laid off from a 15-year corporate career, seeing it as an opportunity to try something new.
  • Willow North works with a wide range of companies from 200 employees to 45,000 employees across many industries, addressing common challenges around lack of communication and pause for assessment.
  • Andora takes time to immerse herself in each client's business to fully understand their language, scenarios and needs before customizing the training experience.
  • She sees the biggest mistakes as not taking enough time to reassess strategies as the world changes and focuses too much on a few priorities without addressing other factors.
  • Engagements typically last 6-9 months with many clients remaining long-term due to positive results.
  • Andora is still learning as an entrepreneur and remains open to challenges and new ideas from clients to improve further.
  • A manufacturing client from 2018-2019 continues to reference lessons around effective communication years later.
  • Upcoming initiatives include individual communication training and retreat programs alongside existing corporate work.
  • The key takeaway is to remain open to learning from mistakes and new suggestions along the entrepreneurial journey.
