Gabriella Payne started her career at the young age of thirteen working as a wash girl for a local salon owned by a family friend. After having that early exposure to entrepreneurship - she decided that she would own her own business by the age of 32.
During her teenage years, she slowly started to build her skillset working in sales for luxury retail companies like Coach and high-end nightclubs in downtown DC. With an affinity for hard work, she also worked for the Department of Defense as a passport courier - all while attending Salisbury University.
During her time at Salisbury University, she was selected to study abroad in Ecuador where she was introduced to Six Sigma Principles for the first time. Upon her return she was able to leverage those skills in various internships at Target and NewDay Financial.
Her exposure to diverse companies, cultures, and experiences resulted in her ability to land an impressive role as an Order Entry Supervisor fresh out of the Perdue Business School. It was in this role that she was tasked with learning and relocating a department from the states to Mexico. After nine months of hard work and dedication, she was given the okay to make the move beyond the southern border.
She worked her way up into becoming the right hand to the Plant Manager, and was able to get her Yellow Belt Six Sigma certification. During this time, she started hosting small business events for the community. She spoke about topics like product development, business growth, and sales tactics until she finally went into one-on-one consulting.
With so much experience under her belt, she was picked up by a management consulting firm and began to travel all over the United States as a management consultant helping companies grow their profitability through productivity.
After working with over 12 different companies in a three-year time span, Gabriella finally took the leap to running The Boss Blueprint Agency with the support of her small business clients.
Gabriella has served over 50 privately owned small businesses in the areas of branding, marketing, and workforce development through her agency. Because of her breadth of experience, she has been called on to speak to students and professionals alike at universities and corporate institutions. Her mission: to help companies maintain profitability while providing excellent customer experiences.
