"A lot of times I’d have to contact fabricators...and when I called (especially when I was twenty and I would call with my voice and my accent) no one would help me with anything. So I started using the title ‘A To Z Administrative Services,’ almost as a joke. And I made letterhead and business cards and I’d call people up and I’d ask them for information. And they would automatically assume that I was a secretary calling for a legitimate company. Through the years it’s really opened a lot of doors and it’s really helped me to function."
