Meet the Class of 2014 Who’s Who Women in Ecommerce™ Gina Gaudio-Graves,  Directions University  

One of the biggest mistakes entrepreneurs make is not using leverage to get bigger results with less effort.  That’s what Gina Gaudio-Graves teaches students at Directions University.   Through her experience as “The JV Queen”, Gina created the “Vortex Model” of doing business that allows businesses to make a bigger difference in the lives of their customers while at the same time making more money than ever before.

Gina first started her business in order to make the $40,000 a month she needed to pay for her medication and quickly realized that if all she did was sell a product, she wouldn’t be able to afford her bills.  That huge “why” helped her to create a system that uses strategic alliances, joint ventures, and other forms of leverage to grow a successful business that makes a difference in the world at the same time.

Today, Gina is the Dean & Founder of Directions University where she works with Associate Dean, Jack Humphrey, and 20+ World Class Faculty Members to provide education and resources to entrepreneurs that allow them to get direction for the life, improve the direction of their companies, learn to give direction to their prospects and customers, and impact the direction of the world!
