If you want to hear an inspirational story from a true business leader that shares some really valuable thoughts on running successful organizations, you won’t want to miss this episode. We only talked about one of her businesses. She will definitely be back on the show in the coming months.
Using gentle, alternating micro-vibrations called BLAST (bilateral alternating stimulation tactile), TouchPoints give the user a gentle vibration that affects the brain and alters the body’s stress response to restore calm. This also relieves the associated body sensations that often accompany stress (i.e. stomachaches, headaches, or tightness in the chest).
Vicki Mayo is a self-made serial entrepreneur and the business powerhouse behind The TouchPoint Solution, for which she invented of a patent-pending technology that alleviates stress in 30 seconds.
A mental health advocate, Vicki founded TouchPoints to help children and adults increase their quality of life by reducing stress and anxiety, improving sleep and increasing focus. By the end of 2020, Vicki has helped 12 Million people “press and destress” with TouchPoints.
Vicki sold her first company for profit at the age of 17 and has continued to find success as a successful entrepreneur and business leader. As a first generation American, Vicki has been a trailblazer as a minority woman in the male-dominated technology industry.
In addition to The TouchPoint Solution, Mrs. Mayo is also the owner of GMI, a total technology solutions company and Valor Global, an industry-leading customer care company, both headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona.
Vicki specializes in Six-Sigma business process with a passion for creating a workplace of diversity and inclusion. She has devoted her career and personal time to changing the status quo for minority and women leaders in both the profit and non-profit sectors.
