There are so many women making power movess in their career. I am thankful to have a platform where I can interview and talk about their services. It is always an honor to meet a woman who is business minded and accomplished quite a few goals during her career move. I had a chance to chat with Myra Dorsey about her firm MD HR Consulting as well as her book Benefit of the Doubt and her massage business LaBodi Massage. This is a woman is a jack of many trades. What I like about Myra is that she shows the ability to conquer her goals and she continues to strive to be better. Many people believe they
have to stick to one thing and master it. If there are other business ventures you want to get involved in then do it. Myra is the perfect example of living out her dreams. Take a moment and read this extraordinary interview about her many accomplishments. I guarantee you will be inspired!

That is when I decided to remove myself from corporate. Ironically, I didn’t go right into HR Consulting. I went to massage school and became a therapist and literally morphed that into a thriving a business. I have over 40 therapists on my team throughout the DMV area. I grew that business first and with my HR background, it made it easier for me to knock down some barriers that my competitors were not able to.
Carefirst is one of my largest corporate clients and that business is now taking a life of its own. It was not until 2 years after the massage business flourished that I realized I missed the HR aspect of my life and started to do freelance in consulting during my downtime from massage therapy. The small companies that I was doing small projects for really appreciated and liked my work so they demanded more of my time. Therefore, my freelancing became full-blown consulting where I now have others on my team helping me on current and future projects. Continue reading “Myra Dorsey – MD HR Consulting”
