Program Director – Chicago
Loreal Mallett is our Program Director in Chicago. Loreal is an ideator with a bold and communicative style. She’s been told her superpower is her ability to process complex information and break it down in a simple way.
She genuinely enjoys helping people achieve their goals. If you have drive and desire, Loreal is all in for the long haul. She remembers being at point A, seeing point B, and not having a clue how to get there. And now she’s there! She says it’s not easy, but my goodness it is worth it!
For the last twenty years, Loreal has been a Professional-Stuff-Getter-Done-R (aka Executive Assistant). Her career was built on helping others achieve goals – through ideating, problem solving, and being in service to them. Throughout her career and entrepreneurial journey, she has always coached others, formally and informally, to achieve their desired outcomes.
More recently, Loreal started a small business, All Butter’d Up. Like many of you, Loreal didn’t start with the intention of being a business owner. All Butter’d Up started as a labor of love. Then, she realized that people were willing to pay for a product she created. That evolved into an understanding that she was providing a solution to a problem – typical shea butter was heavy and left a residue. Her marketing and product line grew from listening to her customers. And, now her product has on people and how it improves their quality of life instantly.
Loreal decided to join the Uptima team because of the non-traditional model that we use. The traditional models of business support are notorious for scratching the surface or over promising and under delivering, thus keeping entrepreneurs like her in a labyrinth. Whereas Uptima takes the entrepreneur on a deep dive, teaching the fundamentals and how to apply them practically to our businesses.
