Leaning In to Excellence with Jerzell Pierre-Louis

Kris kicks off this week with a fun new announcement about a recent purchase she made and then welcomes Jerzell Pierre-Louis, Founder of Sprout Early Education Center and Bloom Early Education Center. Ever since Kris heard Jerzell talking next to her table in Las Vegas at this year’s past Child Care Success Summit, she knew she had to have her on. Jerzell shares her game-changing strategies for upping your marketing and enrollment, talks about leaving people better than we found them, and how to model the behavior you want to see to your team. Jerzell gets us jazzed about scaling bigger and better, and how she has overcome challenges by leaning in, asking for help, and surrounding herself with excellent people.
