Before she was an IT professional, an executive or a philanthropist, Monica Eaton-Cardone was an entrepreneur.

Today, Monica serves as a co-founder and executive of Global Risk Technologies™ and its subsidiaries, Chargebacks911™ and eConsumerServices. However, Monica founded and managed multiple other successful ventures over the years, starting her first business while still just a teenager.

Later this month, Monica will appear as a special guest at “Turning Your Ideas into Reality—National Entrepreneurship Week,” presented by Microsoft in recognition of National Entrepreneurship Week (Feb. 22-27). The event brings together three of the Tampa Bay area’s most prominent small and medium-sized business owners for an evening of discussion, advice and inspiration.

Event Recap

Monica and her fellow panelists earned an excellent reception from the crowd at this Entrepreneurship Week event. All three participating business leaders had a fascinating story to tell about their journey to success.

Of course, before one can truly bring their ideas from the realm of imagination into reality, there are a few key points to keep in mind. Monica prepared her own response to this illuminating event here, in which she explains the three most essential ingredients for success.
