Dr. Minette Riordan

For the past 8 years, Dr. Minette Riordan has successfully built a multi-media publishing company targeting families in the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex. She credits her success to learning how to connect with others through networking, referrals, strategic partnerships and an attitude of service to others first. Minette's secret to success is not about winning a numbers game, but playing the people game: cultivating an attitude of curiosity and openness that will quickly help you attract clients and fans.

Prior to starting her company, Minette was an educator who taught at the university and high school levels, as well as adult education and personal development workshops. In addition to running Scissortail Publishing, Minette is an ACPI Certified Coach for Parents, Rapid Success coach, speaker and seminar leader. She was named the 2009 Small Business Owner of the Year by the Plano Chamber of Commerce and received the 2007 Altrusa Outstanding Women of Today award.
